Located in Cuneo (Piedmont, Northern Italy), C.B.T. Italia has produced high-end racing bicycles since the early 1980s, when Guido Tardivo joined the family business that his father Giovanni had established thirty years before. (Costruzioni Bici Tardivo)
This C.B.T. Italia Eroica Bicycle is quite typical for the extraordinary way their bikes were built. The frames are always a bit more attractive, a bit more exclusive and refined than the already elegant standard Italian road bike.
The tubing consists of Columbus 'superbutted' tubes from Cyclex steel. Columbus tubes were the choice of most professional riders back in the second half of the 1980s and the early 1990s.
Regarding the components, Campagnolo Chorus parts are what you find on this exquisite frame.
Hand-made, terrifically captivating and performing.
Completely checked and ready to go.
The right choice for high-demanding riders with passion for details...
