I live by the credo that you can never have enough bas-ass Italian brands.
Here are the Italian brands you can expect when we open in 3 weeks time...
Hand-built in Italy with a ridiculous flair for the dramatic. And a pro-tour heritage to boot.

In memory of the famed Italian climber, with a portion of proceeds going to Italian children's charities.

We have two framesets incoming - I think I am going to unwrap them with white gloves...and then take them out for lobster and steak. Sooo classy.

Dario builds some of the finest steel and aluminum frames on the planet. Which is why the wait for a full-custom frame is 8-10 months. It's worth it!

Pegoretti was also 2008 NAHMBS frame-builder of the year: http://italiancyclingjournal.blogspot.com/2008/02/pegoretti-named-frame-builder-of-year.html
Former pro Marcel Wust described the Viner Perfecta as the finest review-bike he had ever ridden.
- Viner does carbon in many forms- here is a Mitus 0.4 with tapered headtube out of T800 carbon
More brand updates to come soon...plus our first sample stock has started arriving. OMFG.
