There is something you can find in Italy that is quite unmatched anywhere else in the world. In Italy you can find engineers who are actually poets. Angelo Luigi Colombo is one of this rare species.
In 1919 when he founded his company, he wanted to produce and refine something as basic and ordinary as steel in such a way that it becomes a product of extraordinary qualities and value. And that is exactly what he succeeded in doing. All around the world his work let lightweight and elastic steel construction to new heights. At BELLA CIAO we use the wonderful Dedacciai tube sets in which the principles of stability, lightness, and elasticity work to perfection.
INGEGNERE is our tribute to the genius of every creative engineer committed to turning the elementary into the most refined. Finding the best in the most basic. Making the original the best by far.
INGENGERE is available as a single speed bicycle or equipped with Sturmey Archer Duomatic.
Our INGEGNERE can also be purchased with Gilles Berthoud fenders, rear rack, kick stand, and/or with dynamo powered lights.
