Many of riders today have a bad habit of cataloging the quality of a bicycle based primarily on the material which the frame has been manufactured and unfortunately, steel usually occupies the lowest rung in the most common materials.
This situation is about to change, is that some brands have endeavored to revolutionize the market and relaunch steel as a valid material for bike frames with high performance.
Dosnoventa is one of the few who dares to innovate in everything they do and, for this occasion, the brand from Barcelona surprises us with two brand-new frames made of Columbus steel: Stuttgart and Edinburgh.
La brand has a good frame assortment behind. They began his career with Barcelona and Monte Carlo models. Soon after, presented the Houston, Detroit and Tokyo, which was a revolution. The following year, showed a new version of Detroit (2) with renewed geometry, the CX frames Oslo and Helsinki, and his first road bike, Verona. These were followed by the Kuala Lumpur as a cheaper alternative to other models.
Now, in 2015, these two jewels come with the charisma and the ruin of top model Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. Elegance in the lines and colors transgression are the keywords of the new concept proposed by Dosnoventa.
