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.
