Dream Bikes: Installment 1 – Chesini Strabia

Who likes beautiful bikes?


We sure do, and we’ve had the great fortune to have customers that do, too. Today, we’re starting a series of posts sharing them. If you have a dream bike, we can help you make it happen.

The first installment in our dream bike line up is this Chesini Strabia.


For those not familiar with Chesini, they’re an Italian company that specializes in road bikes. The Strabia is their All-Road/Gravel offering.  The Strabia uses a combination of Columbus Spirit and Zona tubing, has clearance for 45mm tires, and uses the latest standards; flat mount brakes and 142×12 and 100×12 thru axles.

We built this one up for fast mid-west gravel with a Campagnolo H11 Groupset. Mechanical shifting matched with hydraulic disc brakes, a 50/34 crankset, and a pair of fast rolling Vittoria Terreno Dry tires set up tubeless on Roval C38 wheels. A Chris King Headset; 3T Superergo carbon bars, ARX LTD stem and seatpost; Lizard Skins bartape, and a gorgeous Brooks Swift Saddle round out the build.

We’re looking forward to the weather clearing and a ride report, but when we test rode the bike it was awesome!



Check back for more updates, we have a few more of these coming! Want one of your own? Give us a call!
