Let’s continue the writing of some Eurobike related articles with, in a first time, a few pictures of the exceptionnal bikes Passoni was presenting. These are still as expensive as nice.
The italian manufacturer produces frames from the three main materials of the bicycle industry. First, the titanium that made its fame 20 years ago. Second, the steel that tends to age because of the new materials, and third the carbon that appeared recently in the range.
Force – titanium – Marchioso T800 wheels
