From the Giro d'Italia to a Saturday century with your local shop ride, the APPIA is as comfortable in a gruelling stage race as it is on a beer-themed weekend ride with friends.
A true distillation of road cycling, the bike's size specific geometry is aggressive enough to take a corner in a criterium without sacrificing all-day comfort on long road outings. The frame's slightly sloping top tube forms a smaller, lighter and stiffer main triangle while increasing maneuverability on the bike and affording more standover height.
The legendary smoothness of titanium shines in the APPIA's stability on fast descents, instilling the rider with confidence through light and responsive handling. On the other side of the valley the elegant tapered head tube and seamless carbon fork provides a stiff platform for climbing.
Connoisseurs of Pacific Northwest road cycling will recognize the geometry from the venerated Ti Cycles Hyak, and titanium aficionados will appreciate the solid construction and elegantly shaped stays. Details like a full titanium replaceable derailleur hanger, standard Di2 compatible internal construction, 68mm BSA bottom bracket and 31.6 seatpost make this the most sensible exotic bike on the market.
"When I finally got the new bike out on the road after a couple break-in rides on a trainer, it was awesome. The Appia definitely translates effort into movement more efficiently than [my previous bike]. The fit seems close to perfect. My knees aren't sore and I'm stretching out just a little more." -- Scott R. // Portland, OR
"My initial impression is that the bike is very comfortable and super stable. It was very natural to ride upright with no hands on the bar and not fear that the bike was going to kick me off. The bike loves to carve turns. I felt very comfortable leaning it into turns and just riding them out. It was smooth to say the least. I would say that this is a great road race/ stage race/ all day in the saddle kind of bike. The bike was comfortable on the uphill sections of the rollers and it was predictable on the downhills." -- Dave R. // Beaverton, OR
