To commemorate a small village called Catena, the birthplace of Giovanni Pinarello and the place where his cycling passion and business began, Pinarello Bikes has unveiled a new messenger bike, the Catena. Interestingly, Catena is the Italian word for chain.
Conventional method was used during the production of the Catena, which means that the CrMo tubing was joined by brazed lugs. Aside from its classic livery and neat chromed lugs, the bike also features a matching finishing kit that perfectly restores all the old cycling beauty.
With its sentimental value and classy retro design, the 2012 Pinarello Catena Messenger Bike is a great machine for passionate and stylish cyclists. Other features of this singlespeed bike is a fixed and freewheel rear wheel, a flat bar, and drop bar variants.
