2013 NAHBS: Ellis Cycles - Strada Fango

  We needed a mop to clean up all the drool from when Dave brought his new frame in the shop to be assembled for this year's NAHBSThe Strada Fango, Ellis' cross bike can be built as a Sunday morning race whip, or set up as a monstercross adventure style bike like the one shown here.  It features clearance for skinny 29'er tires, disc brake mounts, internal Di2 wiring and even rack and fender mounts for the occasional tour.

Head over to Ellis Cycle's Facebook page to follow new developments.  Ellis Cycles won "Best Steel Bike" at the 2012 NAHBS and I'm sure he'll do alright this year too!  Good luck Dave!

Ben's Cycle Flickr has more photos of this bike too.
