Torelli Gran Sasso complete Italian handbuilt bikes
The Torelli Gran Sasso complete bicycle was built is a small shop in North Italy. When we write small, we mean it. The shop had only five workers, including the owner and secretary. The workmen all had long experience in the art of bike building.
The frame is Columbus Tubing's "New Thron" steel tube set. Like all Torelli frames and bikes when a steel fork is used, it has an investment-cast fork crown rather than a unicrown (fork blades welded directly to the steering tube). this gives the fork and therefore the bike's ride, more give and resilience. The payoff for the rider is more miles in greater comfort and a bonus of better handling. Joints are TIG-welded.
If you have never ridden a modern steel bike, come in and give one a try. You'll be amazed it's comfort and response.
