We did a small run of Gaulzetti frames over the winter, and the last few are rolling in. Unchanged in manufacture, the Gaulzetti Corsa – Embro Edition was all about the finish. We removed the Wallonian Rooster that’s long been a staple of Gaulzetti, threw on some moka pots, and tossed in a bunch of matching bits from Chris King to pull it all together.
This particular example is Belgian Blue with Navy logos, gold Chris King everything, Shimano Ultegra 6800, and a Fizik cockpit to finish it off. A hard-edged race machine but currently rolling on 27c Vittoria Pave tires, this bike was meant to be ridden hard and put away wet.
After riding a number of bikes with the new 11sp Ultegra group, we’re hard-pressed to justify Dura-Ace to anyone but the most weight-obsessed out there. Performance is phenomenal and we at Embro HQ tend to prefer the grey finish as compared to Dura-Ace’s polished/black.
Recently Gaulzetti made a production change, using the same proprietary tubeset but now built by Kelly Bedford. This adds a long history to the technology behind every Gaulzetti, combining Kelly’s career in frame building with Gaulzetti’s famous geometry and tubes.
Unfortunately we only have a few more of these in the pipeline as the Embro Edition project has ended. Fortunately, the ones in process are all also going to be incredible. Stay tuned….
