REPETE cycles, the Czech frame building specialists won the North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2015 Best Road Bike award with their high-end road bike model REPETE REborn. The bike is built with Campagnolo Super Record EPS drivetrain and Campagnolo Bora Ultra wheels.
REPETE is a Czech custom bike frames manufacturer. They’re using Columbus steel tubes, an Italian manufacturer with a long-standing history in cycling.
The frame of REPETE REborn is constructed from steel tubes made by Columbus, which are triple-butted steel tubes Spirit HSS. The NIOBIUM alloy tubes were developed, so that the finished frame would have all the best mechanical properties with the least amount of weight possible without compromise of integrity.
An important fact is that through the process of thermal treatment of the tubes, they become more resistant against adverse environmental influences; therefore they have a longer life span. The profiled-section of the tube is designed so that the frame reaches high rigidity and is also comfortable during long rides. The frames are custom built according to the proportions of the customer, which ensures the correct sitting position on the finished bike. The custom made frame prevents possible pains caused by the improper selection of mass produced frames, which usually have a limited range of sizes.
With the correct center of gravity and chosen geometry, the forces are transferred effectively ensuring a safer and more comfortable riding experience. The customer chooses from our recommendation of carbon fork manufacturers, whereas the REPETE frames are adjusted to tapered head tube placement to achieve better torsional rigidity.
