For those who are looking for a steel road bike, one of the latest steel road machines for 2012 is the Speciale Strada, which was released by Masi Bicycles. This is perfect for riders who are looking for something different, which does not cost an arm and a leg.
Weighing in at 10.89kg, the Speciale Strada is a 100% chromoly steel that uses neither seamed nor high tensile steel tubing. This means that the material offers the tolerances necessary to maintain both ride quality and low price.
Designed with simplicity in mind, the 2012 Masi Speciale Strada Steel Road Bike offers nothing but a reliable performance on the road. Other steel features are the lugged chromoly steel fork and the steel toeclips of the Brev. M pedals, which also have nice leather accents.
