AURORA "Australis" Track Bike

Being a huge fan of old Principia aluminium road and track frames for many years, it was sad to see this company going to change direction in 2004/05. I always wanted to bring back this dedicated craftsmanship, the classic geometry and the artisan quality which made the frames famous. Not that easy, when even most old-established italien cycling companies move their production to low-cost countries and the bicycle becomes a mass-produced item. But there are still many dedicated framebuilders who put their heart and soul in each and every frame they produce. I was able to find one in Italy, who was able to help me produce the frames I was thinking of. In times were sloping, whether it is positive or negative, seems to be the only choice and most people think carbon is the one and only material for modern and competitive frames. The AURORA “Australis” is my interpretation of the perfect aluminium frameset, merging a classic geometry with modern details and modern materials. It makes a beautiful bike, with the right parts. I added a Campagnolo Record Pista Group and some more quality parts to finish this one! I hope you like it.
