Bikes and bike components shot on a black background look prestigious. The newest build by Chappelli Cycles is no different. Scheming the bike black and chrome, they’ve incorporated a NuVinci infinitely variable rear hub for gearing, leather grips with red bar-end lights, and a chromo lugged steel frame with custom Chappelli cranks. The wheelset is chrome deep V to made to match silver lugs and componentry.
Updated: Also worthy of mention, the NuVinci build recently won the design award over at Good Design Australia, in the category of Sport and Leisure.
Chappelli is cranking out a limited amount of these, to those that reserve, and they’re shipping in October. Pricing is $1795. Click ‘more’ for glam shots…
On top of the NuVinci build, Chappelli also sells some pretty nice looking, yet affordable SS/fixies. Pictured above is the Crema, with hand stitched leather grips, a chromo frame with lugged fork, deep Vs and both brakes. Pricing is $395 for most of their fixie builds in a range of colors. Not too bad. Available in medium and large.
