The name of the game when we were designing this frame was clean, straight lines. Based on the same geometry as our beloved Pompino but stiffened up a bit the frame is made from cold drawn butted 4130 chrome molybdenum for high strength and lightweight.
We've taken the front end fit and steering geometry of the Pompino and allied that to a slightly larger diameter top tube and super-short chainstays. This new top tube means the Macinato tracks incredibly well during hard cornering and those heart-in-mouth taxi-driver-avoiding quick-change manoeuvres that make your commute so entertaining in the morning.
The 405mm chainstays keep your pedal power responsive whilst still offering more than enough room for 28mm tyres. A particularly nice touch on the Macinato are the simple-to-use Taperlock rear dropouts that do away with the need for ugly chaintugs. Less is more and all that. The rear spacing is track bike standard 120mm.
Geometry does matter:
Up front the head angle is a sporting 73 degrees and seat angle is 73.5 degrees to keep you in control over your cranks. The bottom bracket drop is 66mm for a tad more ground clearance when you're laying it down and spinning it around.
More than looks alone...
The Macinato isn't just a pretty bike, it's a finely honed street weapon, with style, panache and credentials to back it up. All in all it's a damned fine bike to ride. The fact that our team executed one of our classiest ever paintjobs and decal designs is the icing on the cake. Or the crema on your coffee if you prefer.
Seat Tube Length Centre to Top (mm)
As our frame geometry is COMPACT you need to knock 3cm off “conventional” frame sizes. If you want a longer frame, you can go up a frame size without ruining yourself on the top tube.
All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can also depend on a rider’s torso and limb length.
