Ah spring, a time when the weather’s getting warmer, the day’s are getting longer (especially this Sunday–don’t forget about Daylight Savings), and thoughts turn to more riding and, inevitably, new bikes! Cycling magazines are only too happy to feed our spring bike fever, and the folks over at Bicycling Magazine have turned up the heat with their latest thorough Buyer’s Guide (available now at our retail stores):
But as you’re flipping through the pages, checking out all the new gear, be sure to stop and take a look at page 28. You’ll find this striking photo of our very own 2011 Scattante Americano Three singlespeed bike, available soon exclusively at Performance. As you can imagine, we’re really excited about how the new Americano series turned out (we’ve got a sneak preview picture of our entire Americano line back on our 2011 bikes post).
Bicycling’s review of the Americano Three starts on page 29 and continues on page 33 of the April Buyer’s Guide, and it gives you a good feel for what the Americano series is all about. The Americano bikes merge solid geometry and understated urban style with a single-speed drivetrain, all at a fantastic value (leaving you the opportunity to customize your bike to make it as individual as you want, like this Americano that you may recognize from the blogosphere).
If you’re interested in even more eye-candy from our Scattante lineup, then you definitely don’t want to miss out on page 67 of the Bicycling Buyer’s Guide, where we’ve got a shot of our brand new 2011 Scattante CFR Pro road bike (alongside our Scattante Spyder helmet, sunglasses and shoes)! We’ll have this Shimano Dura-Ace Di2-equipped steed available soon, and don’t worry, it rides as good as it looks!
