Cazzo :: Emerald Green, Luxe Smart Enve and Campy Record

It would seem that steel is on the rise... at least by our very non-scientific calculations here.  All we can say is that Cazzo has become a hot item of late. 

This here is a special beast - a unicorn in Emerald Green.  This Cazzo is built to Corsa geometry.  We adjusted the angles, shortened the wheelbase, added a 44mm head tube and shifted to a tapered fork.  The handling is sharp, the clearance is minimal and the stiffness is at its maximum.

Aside from the geometry, head tube and fork modifications, this is a standard Cazzo - as standard as they get. PegoRichie Columbus UOS tubing, dropouts from Richard Sachs, and an English threaded BB round out the features of this machine.  In keeping with the smaller diameters of the steel tubing (as compared to the massive Deda aluminum stuff on our Corsa) we've specified Enve's 1 1/4" tapered fork and Chris King I8 headset in blue, to match the logo suite. 

Components on this bike have been chosen for maximum function and speed.  A mixed Record / Chorus groupset from Campagnolo keeps the weight low without busting the bank.  Up front, Deda's 35mm bar and matching stem offer stiffness that's on par with the frameset.  The alloy post from Deda is simple, with good adjustability.  

The wheels are built by Justin at Luxe Wheelworks and feature Enve Composites 3.4 clincher carbon rim set mated to White Industries T11 hubs via Sapim CX-Ray spokes.  Michelin Pro4 Race 700x25 tires meet the road and snuggle right up against the seat tube on this super tight wheelbase race bike.
