The Vigorelli Road is the road bike version of Team Cinelli Chrome’s Vigorelli Steel fixed-gear criterium frame. It exactly replicates the geometry and handling of the Vigorelli Steel to make what is probably the world’s most aggressive steel production road bike.
Thanks to its fixed-gear criterium racing heritage, the Vigorelli road is for riders looking for an unusually aggressive and fast-feeling steel road bike reminiscent of pure track bikes.

This frame is dope, and I've been absolutely loving it. Though it was bred on the track, and built for crits, this frame is pretty good at everything - especially if you're a larger track rider like me (generally 180+ lbs). When I first took it out of the box, what struck me about this bike wasn't the paint or the graphics, but rather the sheer diameter of the tubing - the down tube on my previous steel bike was only a little thicker than the top tube on this bike, and that's saying quite a lot. If you know anything about frames, and how their tubing diameter affects the way that they ride, you probably won't be surprised when I tell you that this frame is pretty damn rigid for a steel bike. Just look at the head tube, which is oversized to fit a tapered fork and is only a little less broad than my wrist. Make no mistake - this bike is a crit machine, but for bigger guys like me, where weight doesn't matter quite so much (and my size medium clocked at under 4.3 pounds, which, all things considered, is lighter than the specs and is not actually heavy for steel), it climbs surprisingly well. I'm a guy that makes frames flex under my weight and power, particular up hills where I'm pumping out a lot of watts. This frame handles that load very well. I recommend it to any larger riders who like to ride fast, love loud bikes, and enjoy the unique ride properties that steel bikes have to offer. If you've ever wondered what a steel crit bike with low stack and aggressive geometry would feel like, It won't disappoint, especially at the price point.
