It's been a steady stream of grey and black bikes around here at Embrocation lately and while we love the class and subtlety of these paint schemes, it's sometimes good to see a splash of bright color. In this case, it's our classic Belgian Blue, one of the first colors to ever appear on a Gaulzetti and still one of our favorites.

This is the latest iteration of the Corsa in size 54cm. This bike is going to its new owner as a frameset featuring all the stock Corsa features like Enve fork painted to match, Chris King I7 headset, Deda seat mast topper and in this case, a Shimano-compatible press fit BB from Parlee with Enduro bearings.

Gallery: Cazzo in Gun Metal Grey with Dura Ace 9000

Another week, another bike in our Gun Metal Grey color, which is undoubtedly the most popular color in our lineup for 2012. It's a sharp color and probably the perfect one for purpose-built bikes made from metal. It's also a neutral template for adding other splashes of color, such as the Chris King headset, bottom bracket and hubs on this build, all in green. It's also a near-perfect match for the smokey but shiny silver/grey found on the stunning new DA9000 parts, featured here.

Full specs on this bike:

  • Frame: 55cm Cazzo
  • Fork: Whiskey Components road
  • Wheels: Luxe Alloy clinchers (box section H Plus Son Rims, Sapim spokes, kings hubs)
  • Gruppo: Dura Ace 9000 mechanical, full group
  • Handlebar: Deda RHM01
  • Stem: Deda Zero1
  • Seatpost: Deda RS01
  • Saddle: Prologo Nago Evo TS
  • Tires: Michelin Pro4 Endurance 700x25 with latex inner tubes
  • Bar Tape: Lizard Skins DSP 1.8mm
  • GMGC1A 55cm Cazzo in Gun Metal Grey with White logos.

    GMGC2Oversized steel main tubes meet head tube with King headset installed.

    GMGC3Oversized chain stays have a gradual taper toward the dropouts.

    GMGC4King BB in green mated to Shimano's excellent new Dura Ace crank.

    GMGC5A good view of how large the chainstays become at the BB junction - critical to get the taught ride quality we want in the Cazzo.

    GMGC6The matching King rear hub is the heart of the Luxe wheelset on this Cazzo.

    GMGC7And the front hub. The fork on this bike is a full carbon offering from Whiskey Components, an unusual spec on the Cazzo but a nice, stiff fork.

    GMGC8A good view of the rear triangle, optimized for stiffness but also with thought toward greater-than-average wheel clearance.

    GMGC9Standard road cable routing for the mechanical Dura Ace parts.

    GMGC11One of the most beautiful and (in our opinion) underrated tube junctions on a bike: thin seat stays fitting tightly to the seat tube.

    GMGC10Cable guides with brass barrel adjusters astride the oversized down tube. Also note the box section rims on the Luxe wheels. Cool.

The latest bikes to come out of our Medford, Mass facility, this is a 53cm Corsa in our Gun Metal grey color with classic white logos. Something about the grey really brings out the large welds characteristic of aluminum bicycles. We like that and it seems that those of you who, like us, see aesthetic beauty in raw functionality appreciate it as well.

This bike has all the 2013 features, including our new dropouts, Chris King headset standard and the latest iteration of our Dedacciai 7005 series aluminum tubing. Enjoy.

IMG_7295Machined aluminum dropouts with removable derailleur hanger.

IMG_7304Press-fit BB30 bottom bracket shell offers the widest possible platform for both tubes and stays and leads to nice, clean welds.

IMG_7316A good view of the front triangle of this Corsa, including classic down tube mounted cable adjusters.

IMG_7329Another front end view with a good view of the King I7 headset and Enve Composites fork.

IMG_7334Oversized, shaped chain stays are large and have subtle shaping to allow for wide diameters but ample clearance for tires and crank arms.

IMG_7346The 44mm head tube is very simple, light and matches the main tubes perfectly.
