For almost a century, the Galetti brand has defined itself by the craftsmanship of its products, namely the manufacture of artisanal bicycles. A lot has changed in the world – and the world of cycling – since Cicli Galetti first opened its doors for business in 1920.

    1. Vlad, this bike can be customized. The bike has evolved considerably since the original prototypes in 2015.

  1. I’d be interested to know their logic on where the rear sliding dropouts are positioned. And if they have any trouble without the adjuster screws in place.
