“I chose the pink detail to celebrate my win at the Giro d’Italia in 2000. As for the carbon look, it shows off the smart beauty of a bike that’s a work of handicraft.”
The TITICI F-DB02 x Stefano Garzelli is like a made-to-measure suit for our ambassador, a gem that tells stories. One story is that of Stefano Garzelli, one of the best climbers of his generation; one who managed to win the Corsa Rosa. The other is TITICI’s: we’ve been producing hand-built frames, with custom geometries and colours, in Italy since 1961.
The new F-DB02 x Stefano Garzelli is born to take on vertiginous roads. The F-DB02 disc brake frame is 10% lighter than its predecessor. We have redesigned the rear triangle and replaced the saddle clamping system.
With our Plate Absorber Technology (PAT), we’ve successfully created the world’s thinnest top tube: just eight millimetres thick where it meets the seat tube. But while the TITICI style is unmistakeable, it’s not all about aesthetics. This patented system enables the frame to absorb up to 18% of vibrations with respect to a standard frame, without compromising its exceptional torsional stiffness. Who said you need to sacrifice riding comfort and safety to get optimal racing performance?
Let’s hear what Garzelli had to say: “TITICI is impressive when it comes to pure performance. You can see the quality of a bike in how it descends and with the F-DB02, where you enter the bend and where you leave it is up to you. It’s precision, safety, excellence. On the climbs, you can feel the stiffness as you lift the pedals: it’s with you at every change of pace. These details are so important for a professional and they make a big difference to amateur cyclists too. And TITICI absolutely nails them.”
