Tutto Plus is your do-everything high-performance urbantrack frame: it can quickly morph from messenger work bike complete with front rack to crit race bike to single-speed cross machine to indestructible commuter. Obviously made with Columbus Cromor steel tubes. Tutto has been constructed to be able to accept a rear derailleur and a modern road race wheel. A segmented TIG welded fork which improves rigidity as well as the overall aggressive street-ready aesthetic of the bike.
The Beatnik is a stripped-down, go fast bike for the urban jungle. It features a steel frame to soak up anything the city has to throw at you, along with brakes and a flip-flop hub just in case. Everything you need to survive on pedals on the street. Nothing more. Nothing less.
LEGENDARY FRAME DESIGN These one-piece single-loops stays with trailing dropout plate have been Taxi signature since 1980. Reducing the number of rear triangle welds makes these frames stronger and stiffer. And we don’t have to swage the tubes to a smaller diameter to mate with standard tabbed dropouts, allowing the stays to remain near constant in diameter, yielding an even stronger frame with a bigger, bolder style. LIGHTWEIGHT Many cruisers weigh well north of 40 pounds. Not so with the Taxi! Because nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary, we’ve pared as many grams from these bikes as we could. Starting with the lightweight aluminum frame and a parts pick that’s nearly all lightweight alloy parts. The results are bikes just north of 30 pounds that are easy to pedal and more fun to ride. PERFECT FIT All frame sizes offer an extra-long stem quill and head tube and hi-rise handlebars for a comfortable, upright ride position EASY TO SIT ON The Taxi saddle is as durable as it gets, with an extra-thick 3 mil cover to resist puncture, a flat top that won’t pool water when the Taxi is parked in the rain, box section rails that will never bend, and double-loop springs that comfortably support passengers. SMOOTH ROLLING TIRES Our comfort tires have been designed to roll smoothly on pavement, but offer a large 2.35” footprint so that rides on park paths can be managed securely. The additional benefit of that big footprint is larger air volume in the tire and tube, which results in lower air pressure for a more comfortable ride than tires with smaller volumes and higher air pressures. COMFORTABLE STEERING Our cruise-control handlebars were designed to promote a comfortable no-weight-on-the-wrists riding position. With just the right sweep and rise, these handlebars meet the rider’s hands without requiring a forward bend at the waist, relieving pressure on the back of the neck. Handlebar width has also been carefully calculated so that when steered from left to right it does not contact the rider, unlike many other cruiser-style handlebars. RUST RESISTANT Most of the parts specified on our Taxi are made of aluminum to save weight, but also to help preserve the finish of the bike. Aluminum parts include the seat post, seat clamp, stem, rims, front hub, kickstand and crank arms. We’ve even specified a specially treated chain on the Taxi that protects the chain against rust in even the harshest conditions. In fact, this coating increases the rust-resistance of the chain up to 500 times that of a regular chain.
Gazzetta is the urban stationary par excellence: low maintenance and unbeatable versatility. The geometries have been optimized and the distribution of the measures revised over four sizes. The bike of choice for messengers is also the favorite of ambitious commuters and urban racers.
Tutto Plus is the most recent, detailed and sophisticated urban track ever, able to transform itself from messenger work bike with front rack to criterium bike, to single speed cyclocross, to indestructible commuter. Obviously made with Columbus Cromor steel tubes. The Tutto Plus frame has been designed to also allow the mounting of a rear derailleur and accommodate a modern racing wheel. The TIG welded fork makes it stiffer and gives it an aggressively urban aesthetic.
Get your urban riding kicks in with the Nero from Bianchi. Forged in the messenger style, this bike features a flip-flop rear hub allowing it to be run single-speed or fixed. The durable steel frame and fork make for a smooth ride, and the double-wall rims add to the bike's strength, making it perfectly suitable for the vigors of daily commuting.
Bianchi's Pista is a retro track bike that's ready for the track and the streets. Lovingly fashioned from double-butted chromoly, this rig is masterfully crafted to excel on banked velodromes, with a minimal 28mm fork offset for stable handling, a high bottom bracket for pedal clearance, rear-entry dropouts for chain adjustability, and a short wheelbase for agility. It features track-ready components such as double-wall rims, an FSA Tempo crankset, high-flange hubs, and steel track bars.
