Italian Gentlewoman and Gentleman Bicycles

View all 13 Photos

Marketed as “gentlewoman” and “gentleman” bicycles, Campagnola and Passeggio are two new designs from the Italian workshop Satorie Meccaniche.
Campagnola is a vision with a bare aluminum frame. Made for exploring the countryside, the bike has large tires that keep the rider comfortable even when passing over rough terrain. Practical and elegant, the design is outfitted with an integrated alloy basket and a brown leather seat.

Like Campagnola, Passeggio embodies both functionality and finery. However, the more masculine design features steel rather than aluminum for its frame. Painted black, the frame is made from shaved steel by Locatelli. Additionally, Passeggio features a vintage Brooks racing saddle, a flip-flop hub by Anonymous Wheels, and handlebars and mudguards handmade from wood and carbon fiber.
