MARINONI - Campagnolo Turas Mor 2018 - a gravel ride

This build happened as I wanted a reliable 'Eroica' qualified bicycle to meet my needs at 70+ years.
This custom bicycle was built for Eroica events. Although classically inspired the lightweight steel frameset is up to date in terms of functionality and safety.

The frame / fork was hand built in Canada by Giuseppe Marinoni and features brazed on bosses for down tube shifters, front derailleur hanger and top tube guides for the rear brake cable while the frame is 130 mm at the rear.

Brian Chewter of Central Cycle (Hamilton) built the wheelsets and assembled the bike with a mix of vintage and modern components (all in silver) to complete the classic look.

Frame: - classic steel lightweight road bike

Tubing: - Columbus SL with silver soldered lugged construction.

Fork: - 700c classic steel road fork with lugged fork crown.


Clinchers - Hplus Son TB14 rims, Campagnolo Chorus hubs, DT Swiss Competition spokes, Challenge Pro Strada (25 mm hand made clincher) and lightweight butyl tubes.

Tubulars Ambrosio Montreal, Campagnolo Chorus hubs, DT Swiss Competition spokes, Veloflex Vlaanderen (27 mm tubular).

Groupset and Finishing Kit: - Campagnolo Potenza drivetrain with Diacompe Ene Ciclo shifters, 3T stem, Deda handlebar and seatpost, Campagnolo Super Record brakes, levers and pedals, Brooks Professional saddle and bar tape.

Paint: - Custom paint work in metallic Grenade blue with white barres and Marinoni in red, head badge and G, Marinoni signature also in red all paint and no decals.

Details: Frame has chromed rear triangle, chromed top of seat stays with panto Marinoni filled in red paint. Chromed fork with panto M on the crown filled in red paint.
