VOICES - STERRATO Federico Pallanch

Through the VOICES posts, we want to give voice to our customers and their experiences with TITICI bicycles. The first entry is the Federico Pallanch’s voice and his STERRATO Tinge90.

“I am passionate about cycling and snacking. My physical shape is that of a panda but despite this, I like to spend many hours in the saddle. In fact, in my cycling experience I participated at many gravel competitions such as: The Traka 360, Tuscany Trail (twice), Rando Imperator, Nova Eroica, etc …What do you think is the right bike for you? I have asked myself this question several times, is it perhaps the fastest, lightest, most beautiful? What if it was just a vehicle that allows you to explore while guaranteeing excellent reliability and comfort? I went through the use of bicycles with aluminum and carbon frames, but without finding the right feeling for the type of gravel cycling I practice. Until the moment I decided to try a steel frame, specifically a DIRT made with Columbus LIFE tubing equipped with the PAT.P horizontal tube. While trying this bicycle I realized that ultimately this essentiality offered by steel was right for me. Getting on the saddle felt like I had always ridden it, right from the first stretches of dirt road I noticed a comfort that I had never experienced. From smoother terrain like Traka in Girona to rougher terrain like in Franciacorta, this bike is ready to tackle anything with the addition of a pinch of retro style that doesn’t hurt.”
