A few months ago, Philippe decided to trust us for the creation of his new bicycle. After about twenty years riding the same horse, he wanted to stick to the Columbus steel frame, with input tubes, a geometry and modern components. As a good sportsman, he wanted a reactive but above all comfortable bicycle, to perform intense bike rides such as long distance routes.

The frame is made of Columbus Spirit tubes, composed of the most upscale alloy from the Italian brand, the Niobium. The down tube with round profile and small diameter seat stays allow excellent vibration damping and the 44mm headtube associated with the fork Columbus Fel tapered steerer provides excellent wheel placement accuracy, a very significant point in downhill.

The Campagnolo Athena group was an obvious choice for this installation. The build quality, ergonomics, full function of 2 * 11 speed and the very reasonable price make this groupset a great alternative for a bike budget of approximately € 4000. Besides, the refined aesthetic matches perfectly with a fillet-brazed steel frame. Campagnolo is the only current supplier to make the effort to produce entirely in Europe, a point worth emphasizing.

This arrangement required a budget of less than € 4,000, for a very reasonable weight of 8kg.
