We believe that, for hand made bicycles like the ones we produce, steel is the best option.

With the proper technique, the current steel alloys allow the production of the most comfortable and resistant bicycles, without compromising the lightness. Steel bikes are responsive, durable, predictable and versatile, and retain these characteristics throughout their life.


Steel is work-friendly and favors geometry adjustments for custom-made frames. The fillet brazed joints result in a flawless finish. These features make steel the number one choice for the most renowned framebuilders around the world.

We work with three different tubesets:

CrMo 4130

The standard tubeset of our bikes, used in our models and custom projects.


A mix of 4130 chromoly and Columbus special tubes, it is the perfect combination to balance lightness, comfort and robustness.
