Valentina is one half of Biascagne Cicli, an Italian duo who breathe new life into vintage Italian frames. Her job title reads ‘Chief Enthusiasm Officer’ — an apt description for the team who create one machine at a time from parts that can take months to source. The results are always spectacular.
‘Digri’ is the latest machine to roll out of the garage, located in the country’s north at Treviso. The foundation is a circa 80s Rossin frame that has been assembled for a local seafood chef. It was repainted in gold and and a deep shade that’s reminiscent of the nearby Mediterranean. A pair of Miche track hubs have been laced to a magnificent set of gold Ambrosio Montreal tubular rims, a superb complement to the overall scheme. In keeping with the Italian heritage, the stem, handlebars and seat post are all 3TTT, crowned with a Donza suede saddle.
Before she was escorted to her new owner, ‘Digri’ was conscripted as a model, posing with some exceptional pieces of furniture by Italian design house Kristalia. You can see more of Digri’s details on the Biascagne Cicli website, not to mention the rest of their wonderful creations.
