Revanche Bicycles from Tuscany, Italy has shared the Ombromanto.  Custom built with a mix of Columbus Spirit, Life and Max tubing, the fillet-brazed beauty features a modern oversize bottom bracket and tapered headtube.

A well made fillet brazed bike can also be beautiful before paint when well built. See the details shots before and after paint after the break…

Designed to be modern, fast, elegant and efficient, the Ombromanto features aero seatstays and a “squoval” downtube, not typically found on a classically built steel frame.

Builder Emanuel Ferretti apprenticed under Simoncini for two years before recently setting out on his own, starting Revanche. He keeps a blog of his work here.

When a bike looks this good before paint, you know there is a great craftsman behind it.

Thank you all, I’m glad you like it.
It took a bit longer than planned but it was Worth it 100%.
The owner says it rides even better than it looks.
