Gaulzetti Corsa – Embro Edition

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….
