Custom MTB Niner eng

Custom Niner MTB


Developed around the custom-built wheels, this MTB Niner bike has been assembled from scratch with all its components. The result? A reactive and fun bike perfect for every kind of ride.

Cromovelata

Cromovelata


As soon as I heard the word cromovelata, my eyes lit up… Finally the right opportunity to try this finish. This bike synthesizes well the Palo Alto Bikes philosophy: a balanced mix of old school and modern times, steel and composites, light and dark. Assembled from scratch from just a picture, the bike features a Columbus “Brain” frame, Shimano 105 group set and Mavic Ksyrium Pro wheel, all enclosed in 8.4 kg.

Mantra

Mantra


While the traveled distance increases, the one between the cyclist, the environment and the bicycle decreases – this is the result of the gravel world. Hence the need to have a more “personal” link with the vehicle. An example is this Specialized “Sequoia” renamed Mantra: two-color repainting, custom sticker reminiscent of the logo of the frame-builder Mertz and controls moved to the handlebars to leave room for bags … the Mantra is now ready for new adventures!

Rossin

Rossin


“A Rossin deserves a special treatment”, that’s what I thought when this old frame was brought to me to became a blue and chrome bike. New chrome plating, pearl paint, wheels built from scratch and partly new and partly restored components. A “Volare” Cinelli saddle and matching Rossin decals complete this single speed.

Bianchi Ghisallo

Bianchi Ghisallo


A gift by the father in the 80s, this Bianchi, equipped with Campagnolo and Regina Extra 6v box, was in the need to be brought back to its original splendor.
Once sandblasting was carried out, the original red color was restored using current products. Polished circles and hubs, restored wheels, decals created on the basis of the originals and the “Regal” San Marco saddle complete the restoration.

Wilier

Wilier


Used as a indoor training bike with rolls, this Wilier was eager to see the asphalt again.
After restoring the bidon holes and the cable housing worn by the sweat, a simple black and gray scheme was implemented. Custom decals and a new full carbon fork complete the restoration of this ultralight with Easton tubing mounted Shimano Ultegra 9V.

Red Single Speed

Red Single Speed


“I want it red” for the rest I had free hand. For the frame I chose a Columbus “Extra EL”, light but at the same time stiff. To give it a pistard look, the supports of the bottle holder were welded and chain stay, lugs and fork were chromed. Few finl touches: 32mm aluminum rims, a quick-release Affix rear hub, Bullhorn handlebar and a fantastic “Concor” San Marco saddle.
