We celebrate the 60th anniversary of E61, an iconic product and at the same time more current than ever, expression of Faema values and engine of change.
Faema and cycling have always shared the same values. This is why the partnership with Basso Bikes was born to create a custom Faema bike to be auctioned to raise funds to support World Bicycle Relief projects.
Model: DIAMANTE (assembled with CAMPAGNOLO CHORUS + wheels MICROTECH CARBON 38mm)
Brand: Basso Bikes
The classic lines, flawless geometry and rounded tube shapes meet with a construction aimed at offering race winning performance that lasts to create the perfect tool for the trade no matter where, how or over what terrain you race.
More than meets the eye
An essentially essential frame eliminates all superfluous design elements and concentrates on its core mission: racing. The elegant and minimalistic design hides the story of an extremely complex design. The finest materials available manufactured with care and laid into place, by hand, in accordance to meticulous studies on material and shape behavior confer to the frame a performance riding experience that quickly conquers the emotions of even the most demanding cyclist.
Stable, reactive, efficient and handles as if it had four wheels instead of two the Diamante is a versatile road racing bike that is capable of performing everywhere and in every type of racing scenario. More than great geometry and fantastic craftsmanship or materials, the details behind the long list of technological solutions contribute greatly to its exceptionally versatile performance. The curved fork stands out amongst conventional design and adds a great deal of stability.
The head tube/top tube junction provides yet another example of unconventional design as it allows the headset to sit below the top tube, allowing for not only better maneuverability but also a cleaner aesthetic.
3B Clamp System
While integrated seat post clamps are not uncommon, the Basso solution goes beyond merely holding the seatpost in the desired position. The 3B seatpost clamp is capable of absorbing road vibrations in addition to representing one of the most elegant and effective solutions available.
After auction closing the winner will be able to choose the bike size from those available (consult size chart in gallery).
