Cielo’s Road Race Disc brake road bike takes the racier geometry and updated build of the standard Road Race model they just introduced at NAHBS this year, then moved the brakes to the rotors. It even gets the special color options and Cielo stems.
Built with custom drawn ovalized steel tubing, modern touches like a 44mm head tube, PF30 BB and, of course, the disc brakes, make for a thoroughly modern road bike. And word has it, it’ll actually be legal in the UCI peloton in a couple years. It’s available in either electronic or mechanical shifting frame formats. The former requires the use of an internal seatpost mounted battery. Retail’s $2,495 and includes a Chris King headset and ENVE carbon fork painted to match. Roll on down for more pics…
Stiff yet slender stays should make for tight handling and proper power transfer without giving up steel’s signature ride. Those dropouts and disc brake mounts are simply gorgeous.
Stems are available in plenty of lengths and are also painted to match.
Full length external hose/cable routing to the rear brakes should make mechanics everywhere very happy.
Nice logo placement without rim brake caliper mounts.
