Bike of the Year 2015: No.5

Bike no.5: Passoni XXTi

The Passoni XXTI frameset combines titanium with a carbon seat tube for a stiff yet comfortable frame. It's undeniable that the looks and finish are remarkable. With Passoni's custom painted Columbus carbon fork and Cinelli Ram 3 intergrated bars the look is distinctively Passoni. Topped off with custom Passoni x Selle Italia suede saddle and bartape the bespoke look is complete. But it doesn't end there.

Add in some Lightweights, THM Carbone components and Campag Super Record RS... Well, that's a bike that makes the shortlist.
