Guerciotti’s old world Italian cycling know-how plus cutting edge carbon fiber technology from industry leader Mitsubishi merge to become so much more than the sum of their parts in the Guerciotti Gemini Road Bike. Prepare to launch into orbit as the monocoque frameset – built from 12K weave, TR505 carbon fiber – provides a rock solid, featherweight platform that just begs to be ridden to its maximum potential. And no matter if you’re suiting up for the Wednesday night world championships, your favorite gran fondo, a road race, a crit, or a solo ride on your local stomping grounds, the Gemini is spec’d to the nines. No corners were cut regarding the component package as you’re treated to a complete Shimano Ultegra 11-speed mechanical groupset. Buttery smooth, incredibly reliable, and plenty light to boot, you’ll wonder how you got by with anything else before. The Fulcrum Racing Quattro aluminum wheels feature 35mm deep rims to cheat the wind plus provide a light, responsive ride. No Italian bike is complete without some parts from the spiritual home of cycling and the Gemini certainly comes through in spades. The cockpit and saddle are fully Italian through and through as there’s a Deda seatpost, stem, and bar tape, while Selle Italia ably handles saddle detail.
The Colnago ACR Ultegra 11 Carbon Road Bike is new to 2014 and personifies everything Colnago has learned from building the best bikes on the planet for the last 60 years. Brand new for 2014 is the Colnago AC-R. Born from the now famous M10 monocoque frame, the AC-R brings legendary Colnago performance to the masses. Whether a victory in the Spring Classics or winning atop L’Alpe D’Huez in the Tour de France, the M10 has proven to be a winning design. The AC-R brings this same penchant for winning in an affordable package, with similar efficiency for the steepest climbs and comfort for the roughest roads. The AC-R brings Colnago’s nearly 30 years of carbon expertise to the AC-R with a ride quality that is uniquely Colnago. The same tuned geometry and quality manufacturing that bring Colnago riders across the finish lines of professional races worldwide can be found in the AC-R. Through smart design and world-class engineering, riders will no longer have to compromise ride quality and safety concerns on less-expensive carbon bikes.
The Super Glider from Glide Bikes is the most versatile bike in our line-up containing features found in quality bicycles costing twice as much. This multi-purpose folding bike is constructed from lightweight 6061 aluminum alloy making it both strong and very portable. The Super Glider is designed for both kids and adults whether they already know how to ride a bike or if they’re just learning. Thanks to it’s highly adjustable telescopic handle bar system and seat post, Super Glider can be custom fit to most people from age 10 and up. It can be used solely as a balance bike to teach balance, strengthen motor skills, and coordination or as a traditional bicycle with a convenient folding design. Other applications include rehabilitation and physical therapy as well as helping those with special needs. The low step-through frame and pedal free capability allows patients with leg, hip, or foot injuries to slowly increase the weight placed on the injured area and have the ability to get around during recovery. If the Super Glider is going to be used in it’s balance bike or “Glide” mode, the pedals easily fold out of the way and adjustable foot pegs can be swiveled into place with a tool-free quick release clamp. We also made the entire pedal and crank assembly removable by removing one bolt and one master chain link. This would be useful to save a few extra pounds if the bike is only going to be used as a glider/balance bike. This option also allows the bike to be ridden legally on sidewalks in most places. With the pedal assembly installed or removed, the Super Glider folds easily into a transportable size package in seconds without any tools. This unique feature allows the bike to fit in a closet at your workplace, car trunk, or packed up for air, rail, or bus travel. So whether your a newcomer to the two-wheeled scene or an avid cyclist needing a good portable bike to seek new adventures, Super Glider has you covered.
