EICMA – yet more bikes

We spent a fair while on the Pegoretti stand and their bikes look superb, if a little quirky. We’d also like to see Somec, Casati and Scapin get a little more coverage over here as they are really nice looking and seem to be very well made frames, sure they are available, but they just don’t get the press they clearly deserve.

As for bike of the show, well Pegoretti’s retro steel bike with steel fork and custon built stem was by far the prettiest – It had a crowd around it all day.

But Scapin and Casati had my attention for the longest time as they have taken a fresh approach to mixing materials, especially Scapin. We just need to get a test bike now…


with oversized chainstays

The retro styling was very popular

Lovely crown work

And matching stem

Wonderful finish

Fatter chainstays to provide better tracking

Scapin have gone down the mixed materials route

This certainly looks built for comfort

neat seat post clamp

Scapins had lots of cut-outs

and carbon seat tubes are a regular theme

The white carbon one is lovely looking

with a matching seat post

Jan Ullrich Replica at Giant

Giant are going down the mixed media route too

…as ever they are great value

Their best looking bike by far

Somec’s Krypton looks tasty

The “Iron’ is the steel version

Casati steel – a classic Italian approach

Casati details

Or the Laser in full carbon

Casati also have the mixed material approach
