SAB bicycles were founded in 1990 and as it is often the case by Italian brands, its backgound goes deep into history. The founder, Mario Vicini Jr. is the son of the famous cycling legend Mario Vicini, runner up in 1937 Tour de France, multiple grand tour stage winner and Italian champion. Needless to say than that the passion for cycling was circulating inside the family. That showed not just by Vicini bikes but later also by SAB.
SAB became popular in Italy for custom service and were providing multiple smaller amateur teams with their bikes. In early 2000s they step into the professional ranks with team Amore & Vita or Naturino.
Our SAB time trial racing bike is one of those specifically made for a racing rider. The monocoque carbon frame has been aerodynamically optimized all the shifting and braking cables are neatly hidden inside the frame. Equipment is top notch as you would expect from a true racing bike. The Shimano Dura-Ace 7800 series groupset was the first ever to feature 10-speed shifting and it looks stunning even today. Notable is also the team issue large chainring. To allow for the low TT position the carbon fiber ITM Nivola cockpit has been mounted and equipped with bar-end shifters. The smooth turning Mavic Ksyrium SSC wheels fit fior a mountain time trial as well as a flat one, with their large aero spokes cutting through the air very nicely indeed.
If you want a cool bike with top equipment for your very fast rides, this race proven machine is just for you.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in very good condition. The frame has no cracks and is sound. The paintwork and decals are all original with some signs of usage like small scratches. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! Parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in great riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
