In the year of the 25th Anniversary of the second cyclo-cross world championship won by Vito Ditano at Lembeek, in memory of this historical victory achieved by the athlete who best represented the Guerciotti trademark in cyclo-cross, Guerciotti has dedicated the top of the range frame for cyclocross: Lembeek. The X-Crow model had already reached high quality standards and it was the bicycle that determined the "explosion" of Marco Aurelio Fontana, the new talent of international cyclo-cross. Today, Guerciotti presents a model which represents the utmost for the most spectacular discipline in off-road cycling. Lembeek is 15% lighter than the previous X-Crow model, and it is also 30% stiffer and capable of absorbing all the vibrations in racing (which is a fundamental element in a discipline like cyclo-cross). Also the use of a new monocoque fork, studied specifically for cyclo-cross, enables to have a frame kit allowing very high performance levels. In this case also, it took one year of designing and testing to obtain an exceptionally light and stiff frame. Lembeek is a monocoque frame which follows the same concepts of production and choice of materials used for Eureka (by applying the Raw Material Quality Testing). As it did a few years ago first with the Alero and X-Crow, and then with the Libra and Libra Cross, Guerciotti transfers the technical solutions used in racing to off-road racing, in order to have two frames of the same level for both disciplines. Of course, the study of geometries, the design of tubes and stays are then modified according to the requirements of cyclo-cross in order to obtain first of all a reliable frame capable of withstanding all the stresses caused by its use in this discipline. This product will be used in the cyclocross season 2010/2011 by the multi title holder Team Selle Italia Guerciott
