Open Cycle Classic U.P. Remake

When Sandro came in for an overhaul for his beloved Open Cycle Classic U.P. we didnt know where the journey may lead us. It was sure that the framn had to get a new paint and Sandro had something special in mind. Together with Robert from Velociao they worked out this beautiful reminiscence to Martini Racing. In the meantime we build a new, lightweight wheelset with Acros XC hubs combined with tubeless ready Goldsprint Ultimate carbon rims with Sapim spokes mix. Smooth rolling Teravail tyres for lots of km. The drivetrain was upgraded with a perfectly matching Praxis Works Zayante Carbon with SRAM compatible direct mount. The SRAM Force brake setup was also upgraded with powerful and beautiful CNC machined Hope Technology RX.4 brake calipers.
