We closely studied the needs for touring and all road cycling. By borrowing successful bits of frame geometry, tubing profiles, and materials; we are able to provide you the evolution of our Volpe platform which started three decades ago. The Lupo is the Volpe's little brother - another version of the "Swiss Army Knife" of bikes.
The Lupo is equally adept at long distance road rides, gravel road excursions, city commuting, loaded touring, rail trail adventures, and just tooling around the neighborhood. With its eyelets for front and rear racks and fenders, clearance for wider tires, and grime-shedding cantilever brakes, the Lupo offers the same versatility its older sibling is famous for.
The Lupo features a smooth and sturdy Chromolite frame and steel fork, as well as a similar specification package to the Volpe. It only differs in terms of its Shimano Sora crank set, shifters, hubs, and front and rear derailleur.

We are open 7 days a week with expert mechanics and sales staff year round who also race mountain and road bikes for our store.
Our expert staff makes sure you are properly sized for the bicycle that you choose. We go over the entire bike with you so you are that much more educated on bicycles and more importantly your bicycle. No one comes close to the customer service we provide! Test rides are available when you present us with a valid I.D ( drivers license, passport etc.) coupled with a credit card of the same name. To put it in two words…”WE CARE” !!
We also ship bicycles nationwide and internationally. Our experienced staff assembles each bicycle, making sure it is fine tuned to our approval. This allows for a quick and easy 10 minute assembly when receiving the bicycle.
