For city riding or for longer jaunts into the country side, the Corinto from Taurus Biciclette is a comfortable and versatile bike in the classic style. You’d expect an old fashioned bike such as this to be a heavy beast but the use of modern technology and materials keeps the weight to reasonable levels – without cramping its style. Cranks, seat post, hubs and other parts are in lightweight aluminium instead of heavy steel. The use of modern sealed bearings delivers levels of performance and maintenance free durability of which our grandparents would be very envious.
In some parts of the world these retro bikes are the fastest growing sector of the market. Modern consumers want classic styling with modern levels of convenience. So as every bike company and its brother jumps on the retro bandwagon Taurus can be proud that they were there all along, for them, this kind of bike never went out of fashion.
The Corinto (Corinthian) come equipped as standard with mudguards, racks, a fully enclosed chain-case and built-in dynamo powered lights. A Brooks saddle is the perfect finishing touch.
