Passoni Titanio - Titanium Race Heritage

Passoni has been making made-to-measure race bikes for a long time. Back in the 80's and 90's professional cyclists would get their bikes made by Mr Passoni and then sprayed in their team colours. Passoni was the first company to try and alchemise the famously recalcitrant grey metal into shapes to preference performance as the primary criteria - beauty was always just functional happenstance.

The Titanio is hand-crafted from custom butted titanium grade 9 (3Al / 2,5V) for the main tubes and titanium grade 5 (6Al / 4V) for head tube, bottom bracket shell and dropouts. and CNC works.

Nobody else does this with titanium. Beauty included.

For a select few of our clients there will only ever be one bike company. They will never ride anything else.

What our clients say

  • "I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."

  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."
