This cult icon comes equipped with front and rear racks for added versatility during use in the city. The 8 speed Shimano Claris allows for uphill rides, as well as trips outside the city. The classic semi-slope geometry, attention to detail, B17 Brooks saddle and matching bartape makes this bicycle ideal for travel, while at the same time perfectly suited for city riding.
Equipped with dual handlebar brakes for a more upright and safe ride in the city. The rear stays and the fork are designed to allow the assembly of light mudguards. The pedals do double duty: clips on one side, because Gazzetta della Strada is ready to race, but also practical rubber threads on the other, for safe use with leather footwear.
A Brooks B17 saddle, alongside with coordinated techno-leather bar tape and silver accessories add a touch of precious shine, as in the glory days of Grande Ciclismo.

I bought this bike on close out. Having the fenders, a brooks saddle, and racks included made for a great value. Solid steel frame makes it worth upgrading the low grade group set. I wish I could get fatter tires on the bike, but the fenders make 28mm the largest tire to fit. I’m very happy with this purchase. This bike is a great value.
This is a great bike. Really good value. The guys at the LBS who built it up for me asked where I got it. Smooth ride and classic look. Very happy with it. Plan to have a professional build it for you, not a build at home bike.
