The Ellis Strada Fango…been looking forward to seeing this one built up for awhile now! If you’re lucky enough to be at the NAHBS this weekend be sure to stop by the Ellis booth to check out this craft in person.
And yes, those are 29er tires.
The Strada Fango is going to be one of my display bikes at the upcoming NAHBS. I hesitate to call it a cross bike, but that’s probably the closest thing that it resembles, it’s built to accommodate 29 x 2.0 tires for more adventurous rides and it also features disc brakes and internal wiring for Di2 controls. I’m looking forward to doing a number of gravel road and mixed terrain ride/races with it this upcoming season, and it’ll even accept racks if I want to take off on a long weekend tour!
This one is definitely givin me one of those “one-bike-to-rule-them-all” feelings.
It looks even better in person, rolling up a gravel road in Minnesota or Wisconsin…
