Great for everyday transportation and light touring, the Ticino® picks up where bike builders of the 40s and 50s left off, giving it a true handcrafted feel not found in many of today’s cookie-cutter bikes. Named for an Italian influenced area of Switzerland, Ticino’s design aesthetic, craftsmanship and frame integrity are inspired by the vintage bikes once ridden throughout the region. The retro-inspired hubs, cranksets, chainrings, handlebars, forks, pedals and hammered-finish alloy fenders show classic craftsmanship. But this thing is far from a relic. When it comes to performance, the Ticino is decked with modern components custom-manufactured by Electra.
