It’s Alive

First, I have to say that working with Eric on this was truly enjoyable, and was as seamless as ordering a custom frame could be. His level of customer service and attention to detail was AMAZING!!! I can’t recommend him enough.

The goal was to have a race ready ti bike with horizontal top tube, tapered head tube and a bike that could descend with aplomb.

I’ve only had it out on a single ride, but I can tell you it is stiff where it is supposed to be, handles like it is on rails and is plenty light to be a climbers dream. (Those who know me know I need all the help I can get in the hills).

I will throw more photos and details in the custom bike section below, but I really wanted to reach out to Eric and the entire Bertoletti team!

Very very nice!

Having had many interactions with Eric I would expect working with him to be nothing but first rate. That is a seriously sweet Legend by Bertoletti!

Ht 8.5

New from Bertoletti, first pic of a new carbon model.

While Marco is known for his Ti, he is no stranger to those looking for carbon as an alternative.

While his offering in 3K included the HT 7.5 and 9.5, he has condensed it to the HT 8.5.

The HT 11.5, super lightweight with 1K is still available. Both the 11.5 and 8.5 are all custom made to measure as usual with short turnaround times.

I'll update my site by the weekend with pricing, but of course, feel free to message me with any questions.

White.....simple, yet elegant.

TX 6.5:

Marco's 3K carbon frame available for road and gravel.

Perhaps it's me, but there is something about white paint that just draws my attention. Sure....it's harder to clean, but when maintained properly, it sure is beautiful.

Given the mess we are in, Bertoletti's wait time is still 10-14 weeks. I can't promise you a Campy gruppo, but if you want a frame.......done.
