  • everybody’s putting so much effort in to taking the triangle out of the bicycle

    yeahno says:
  • ottimo lavoro, bravi.

    bsdes says:
  • Is it better? I doubt it. Is it better looking? Definitely!

    Seb says:
  • Very nice design, cool!
    how do you change the drive belt? Is there a way to open up the frame?

    Jan says:
  • made in italy !!!!…bellissima

    zagor says:
  • Yes, a very elegant bicycle; lovely to look at.
    I hesitate to inquire as to the cost.
    A carbon fiber frame and all of the beautifully detailed work turn an otherwise simple form of transportation into an unnecessarily expense item.

    jdb says:
  • @rcvs1 3700 euros, according to the second sentence.
    Beautiful, clean style, would look nice hanging on the wall of someone’s Ferrari’s garage.

    Danno says:
  • Details would be nice. What is a “monobloc” frame? One of the captions mentions a “derailleur,” but I’m afraid il n’y a qu’une raille 🙂 It looks like the most expensive one-speed in history.

    Mac McDougal says:
  • What’s with the bike in the water at the beach? makes no sense.

    I do agree this is a beautiful bike though.

    Justin says:
  • The ideal product for today\’s fancy boy… this bike plus your air helmet and get ready for some sausage !!

    ;) says:
  • Branded as a \”metro\” bike, yet on the beach…

    Mason says:
  • i feel ZADERPIJN!

    peen says:
  • ZADEL PIJN!!

    peen says:
  • good 3D rendering job

    cap says:
  • Hi,
    First impression: elegant. nice colours…perhaps it is more of a fashion accessory on wheels…getting off it will be a painful experience if you are below 5’6;)..if it is suppose to be a unisex bike I would definitely reconsider the design of the seat post and top tube….

    arzu says:
  • if it is made of carbon monoblock, I think it would be great to know how much does it weight?

    Luka J says:
  • Exquisitely detailed…beautiful design.

    magnotta says:
  • hahahahahha

    paci says:
  • Sleek & chic ! However, I wonder why the designers went through the trouble of integrating only some safety features without thinking of adding every necessary feature.

    If only the design team had been able to pull off a headlight and reflective panels with the same elegance they did the rear view mirror.

    … Is the seat adjustable ? mud guards ? I mean, the discerning biker wouldn’t want to tear or sully his Valentino “bicycle breeches” now, would he ?

    romain says:
  • While most bike manufacturers are lowering the lower-possible seat-height so their bikes can accommodate a wider range of heights (compact triangle), these guys decided to RAISE it, along with taking out the seat-tube?

    Have fun trying to make the bike fit for you! Form at the cost of function.
