CORVO CITTA Uomo

The Italian city bike. 
The classically elegant CORVO CITTA Uomo is the traditional Italian city bike.

CORVO CITTA Uomo is built on a classic Italian bike frame which we slightly modified in geometry and size to meet the everyday needs of a modern urban clientele. The frame of the CORVO CITTA Uomo is handcrafted by our master frame builders in northern Italy.

The name CORVO CITTA is composed from Corvo = Raven and Città = City and so stands for that bird, that as a crow chooses the city as its habitat and which moves freely and joyfully in any terrain.

The CORVO CITTA Uomo is designed for extremely low maintenance, with its horizontal dropouts, easy to adjust chain tensioners, gear and brake cable handlebar adjustment. Added to this the Schwalbe Road Cruiser Puncture Protected tyres are renowned for their long life and puncture resistance qualities.

On the comfort side, the ergonomic bars are fitted with hand sewn ”super soft” leather grips with seating being taken care of with the famous Brooks B17 hand sewn water resistant leather saddle.

When one needs to stop at a red light the CORVO CITTA Uomo comes with a highly efficient front brake and coaster brake wheelset, the famous back pedal action to apply the rear internal brake. Gearing options are single speed or the highly reliable Shimano Nexus internal hub as 3-speed or as 7-speed.

Fenders in the overall frame colour perfect the gentle silhouette of the bicycle. CORVO CITTA is light, robust and versatile in the classic Italian style.
