Cicli Giubilate has a long tradition in Italian cycling. It was born as a typical bicycle shop in the center of Bassano del Grappa in the mid 1940s and thanks to the entrepreneurship of Rino Giubilato they soon established themselves as the builders and traders of the historical brands Brenta and Zenith in their Region.
In 1972, the two older sons of Rino Giubilato added to the small artisan production bigger industrial facilities. By acquiring the traditional brand Ganna in 1982, they had a breakthrough on the international market. The Italian production entirely guaranteed their bike's originality and high quality standards.
We are happy to present one of their house brand road bikes from the mid 1980s.
Our bike is built around a frame of Columbus Aelle tubing. This is a cold-drawn, microalloyed-steel thin-wall tubing which makes it especially lightweight for plain gauge material. Due to its strength it was often used for larger frames like ours, or even touring frames - basically for anything that needed to be extra stable.
To make the bike even more hard-wearing, the fork and the rear triangle were chromed. The great shiny looks are a nice side-effect.
A frame as tough as this one is a perfect base for an Eroica bike. So what we did is that we outfitted it with a large 28t freewheel. Then we put on a pair of puncture protected, 28mm wide Panaracer Pasela PT tires, which are famous for their low rolling resistance and comfort. All parts have been thoroughly checked and renewed if necessary.
If you want to hit the white roads on this steed, you simply switch the rear shifting from indexed to friction by the twist of one screw and you are ready to go!
