We've said it before and we'll say it again: The Corsa is a race bike in its purest sense. It's designed to be ridden hard, used, abused mistreated and crashed - and then come back for more. We love building up super high end builds such as the previous gallery featuring a Campy Super Record EPS build. We share this feeling that the Corsa is dream-bike worthy with it's hand-made construction, racing pedigree, ride quality and customization. We also happen to believe, and we have no shortage of customers who also believe, that the Corsa is the ultimate workhorse race bicycle.

To this end, we've put together our Joe Racer kit, which features a parts mix that optimizes the balance between cost and performance. We've chosen a group based on SRAM's new Red drivetrain with its redesigned shifters, derailleurs and shift action bringing an extremely light, fast shifting and predictable performance. We've paired this drivetrain with some down-spec parts - items where the second or third tier SRAM parts cost far less without causing any noticeable degradation in performance, so Force level cranks and cassette, Rival level brakes and chain. We've also chosen the SL S wheels from Mavic, which are the current incarnation of Mavic's legendary workhorse Ksyrium line of wheels. We top this off with bar and stem from 3T and a saddle option from Prologo. All in all, it's a race-worthy, made-in-US, nearly indestructible bike package for less than $5k.

This bike is a stock 56cm frame size and features our standard solid paint scheme in black with a custom Jade Green logo set.

  • Frame: 56cm Corsa
  • Fork: Enve Components Tapered

This is a unique build and one of the most impressive complete bikes we've put together yet. This bike is a 53cm Corsa, which like all of our odd sized bikes features a longer, lower geometry than the even sized bikes. The Campagnolo EPS group is typical Campy: very functional, well-built and extremely beautiful in its attention to detail. We found the setup to be relatively easy - both the wiring and the programing were intuitive and streamlined. On this bike we mounted the EPS battery unit on the back side of the seat mast, which was the preference of this client and is one of several options we can employ for the mounting.

Aesthetically, we matched our Gun Metal paint to Chris King's Pewter colored headset. The wheels were custom built by Luxe Wheelworks with the matching Pewter hubs from King laced up to wide, semi-aero section alloy clinchers from H Plus Son on which are mounted 25mm Michelin Pro Optimum front and rear specific clincher tires.

Full specs on this bike:

  • Frame: 53cm Corsa
  • Fork: Enve Components Tapered
  • Wheels: Luxe Alloy Clinchers (Archetype Rims from H Plus Son, Chris King hubs in Pewter and Sapim CX Ray Spokes)
  • Gruppo: Campagnolo Super Record EPS, full group
  • Handlebar: 3T Ergosum Team Carbon
  • Stem: 3T Arx Team
  • Saddle: Prologo Nago Evo TS
  • Tires: Michelin Pro Optimum 700x25 with latex inner tubes
  • Bar Tape: Lizard Skins DSP 1.8mm

  • A 53cm Corsa in Gun Metal Grey with Lime Green logos, Campy Super Record EPS group and Luxe Alloy wheels.

    3T bar and stem as well as a Prologo saddle make up the finishing kit on this custom build.

    Alloy hand-built wheels from Luxe Wheelworks featured wide rims from H Plus Son and Chris King hubs in Pewter.

    Super Record parts all around on this bike, including the top-end crank with the ultra-light titanium spindle.

    Chris King I7 headset in Pewter is a fine match for the Gun Metal paint and perfectly matches the hubs on the custom wheels.

    The BB cluster is a mating of wide tubes and stays. Corsa is a race bike, with just enough clearance for Michelin's wide 25mm Optimum clinchers.

    The back of the seat mast is one of several possible locations for Campagnolo's EPS battery unit.
