The lugged Epopea evokes the fascination for the epic rides of cycling's golden age. The traditional lugged design is inspired by classic Italian hand-made bicycles ridden by the likes of Merckx, Coppi, Francesco Moser, Gianni Motta and Moreno Argentin. In celebration of Doriano’s earliest works, the Epopea features minimal lugs brazed at low temperatures with silver alloy thus reducing loss of strength due to exposure to high temperatures and ensuring optimal alignment of frame and fork.
While the Epopea's lugged construction results in a comfortable bicycle, it does so without any concessions to road feel or the sense of efficiency expected from modern frames. In the end the Epopea is a comfortable, outstandingly tough and durable frame destined to provide it's owner with nearly endless hours of cycling pleasure. The Epopea can be built with your choice of a modern, 12 speed group set or any of the vintage components from the likes of Campagnolo, Sachs, Simplex or StrongLight. Available in 13 standard colours. Custom colours are available upon request.
