If you're an Italophile when it comes to your bikes, we're sure you'll be interested in a free invite to our ‘Italian Connection Day’, an exclusive first look at the 2013 ranges from a select group of Italian framebuilders, on show for the first time in the UK.

We want to welcome you to Cadence for a free event where you'll marvel at the latest creations from classic brands such as Ciocc, Scapin, Casati, Hersh, Olympia and Legend, whose master framebuilder Marco Bertoletti will be in attendance. Come and hear him explain how Legend build their amazing made-to-measure carbon frames, and see their flagship Legend HT 10.5 in full-custom carbon: £10K for the built-up bike! We'll also have the Scapin Hysak on display, voted Superbike of the Year 2011 by Cycling Plus and, for the first time in the UK, the Etika RC, voted at Eurobike as one of the top 10 to watch in 2013.

WHERE: CADENCE at 2a Anerley Hill, SE19 2AA London
WHEN: Saturday 24th November between 11am and 4pm

We'd love you to attend as our guest, to see first hand what these true bicycle artisans can create, whilst enjoying specially-made Italian food, wine and beer on sale in our café.
