Berretto Track

This is my Berretto by Brett Richardson of Brisbane, Australia. Brett doesn't build many frames anymore but he built this one for himself before selling it to me. Dated 13-11-2011 on the head-tube badge. It is an interesting frame built with Reynolds 531 OS tubing, tiny rolled stays, fully chromed underneath with very nice chromovelato lacquer. It has little fork rake, huge BB height and long, slightly sloping top tube and a cool brake bridge. Fork clearance barely takes the 20c clincher. Probably slightly too long for me but does the trick with the short stem. Rushed these pics before the sun disappeared and missed some of the frame details, will attempt better ones soon.


Berretto straight blade, Record threadless (which chorus cap).

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Campagnolo Veloce 111mm.

Wellgo clipless.

Campagnolo Record 165 with 51t Campagnolo to with whatever cog (16t pictured).

No-name a-head stem with Soma HWY1 26.0 compacts.

Campagnolo Chrous 27.2 aero (shimmed from 29.4) with Turbo Super saddle.

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Shamal Clincher with 20c Veloflex Record (maximum size).

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Campagnolo Khamsin with 23c Veloflex Criterium (safer rubber thickness than record tub for outdoor track use).

I was lucky to get this bike some time ago and was smitten with the amazing job Alibi did that I thought it deserved to be rebuilt to exactly or if possible to the same spec - fortunately I managed to acquire Turbo seat ,new Camp Track crankset and luckily I had the shamal and disc also - so presto its all as was and has been winning races with my son of 17years on board .will post some pictures again soon as it is a piece of eye candy. Congratulations to you ALIBI for the inspiration - keeping it alive my friend.

Was this a pursuit frame?

Nah, original fork. Good question though; BB height is just shy of UCI maximum.
