*In Store Now* 2012 Colnago ACE, 2012 Colnago MOVE & 2012 De Rosa R838 Bikes

This is the blogging equivalent of the classic saying 'you wait ages for one bus and then two come along at once'...

We aim to bring you all the latest goings-on here at RaceScene and today we have more goings-on than you can shake a dedaccia stem at. RaceScene now boast in it's store new Colnago & De Rosa bikes for 2012...and they demand your undivided attention!

2012 Colnago ACE

The Ace offers head-turning style with spine-saving comfort. Specifically designed to provide an easy ride for Gran Fondo riders and those who are just starting to take their cycling seriously the Ace provides a more upright and comfortable position than our standard geometries. The frame is a carbon fibre monocoque and features round main tubes and square chainstays. The study of cross-sections, combined with a careful analysis of the layout of the carbon fibres has made it possible to maximise comfort without compromising lateral stiffness for performance and riding pleasure. Available in 8 sloping sizes and two colour variations.

Further information can be found on the website at:

2012 Colnago Move

The Move represents the evolution from the popular Prima 2.0 model. The brand new hydroformed 6000 series alloy front triangle has polygonal cross section top tube and a hexagonal cross section down tube, to ensure confident handling and rigidity. Also new is the C-HS1 headset system and the fork, made specifically to work together with the new headset to improve manoeuvrability and steering precision.

2012 De Rosa R838

Much more than an “entry level” bike, the R838 is elegant, showing attention for every detail, as in the case of all DeRosa’s products. The monocoque structure of the R838, with it’s attractive lines, combines perfectly with the technical requirements necessary to participate in modern cycling, even for those approaching the sport and the world of DeRosa for the first time. A frame that responds to the need for the maximum manoeuvrability, reliability and lightness. Its greatest advantage is the excellent relationship between quality and performance, making the R838 unbeatable and allowing athletes to make a spectacular entrance to the world of DeRosa.

Available with Athena or Veloce groupset.

The funny thing is these images don't actually do the bikes justice so come in store and view them for yourselves.

*NEW* 2012 Casati 53x11 Super Light

RaceScene are pleased to announce that from September the new 2012 Casati 53x11 Super Light frame will be available from our store.

After the great success Casati had in 2011 with the 53 x 11 Super Light frame, they have sought to improve its technical characteristics, making it more innovative whilst delivering greater comfort. Casati have kept the same design with the addition of new colour options.

The alterations they have made to the 2011 model include a different head tube measuring at 1"1/8 1"1/2  to improve torsional rigidity and ride quality. Sleek lines for better comfort and allowing for a good reactivity.

Priced up at £1595 we believe it to be good value for money.

Thanks for reading...

*NEW* Shimano Ultegra Di2 Test Centre Available Mid-September

We are very excited here at RaceScene to announce that, from mid-September, we will have a 'Shimano Ultegra Di2' test bike in store. If you are interested in trying out the unique electronic system then appointments will be free to be made from mid-September onwards.

For the past four years, professional riders have been riding Shimano Dura-Ace components with Di2 electronic shifting technology over the highest mountains, the worst cobbles and through the most extreme weather conditions imaginable. As of this year, Shimano Ultegra will also be fitted out with this groundbreaking technology.

Like the Dura-Ace changing gears becomes easier, effortless and faster by simply touching the shift buttons. Control at your fingertips. Additional benefits include an automatic trimming front derailleur, great accuracy plus easy adjustment and installation. Di2 continues its great success with Shimano Ultegra. And it makes no difference if these roads are cobbles, tarmac or mud.

The groupset will be available for purchase, prices to be confirmed.

Exciting News!

*NEW* 'Ciocc Steel Vintage' Frames for 2012

Here at RaceScene we are happy to unveil photos of the new 'Ciocc Steel Vintage' frames which will be available to buy from our shop in September.

The ‘Ciocc Vintage’ collection has been around for some time. With retro steel frames becoming more popular over recent years ‘Ciocc’ re-introduced the range with great success, a change in fortune seeing as though they actually scrapped 300 steel frames back in the 90's due to lack of demand. The new versions are basically a change of colourway, however they are all custom built and can be painted to suit the customer at no extra cost.

Prices yet to be confirmed but the guideline prices are;

San Cristobal    £ 1195
Replica              £ 1095     (same thing without chrome on frame)
Mokba               £ 1095      Fixed wheel version
Retro                  £ 595      Tig welded entry level

All models inc steel forks.
