BIKE OF THE WEEK: BRIXIA CIDNEO & SHIMANO ULTEGRA DI2 12-SPEED PROJECT BIKE
Ultegra R8100 with Italian flair
The wait has been long, but our Brixia Cidneo project bike is complete. Usually, we would never choose an all-black colorway, but the Italian’s have done it with class. The gloss black has a subtle glitter undertone that then transitions to matte in the rear. The Cidneo is targeting the climber, and our build hit the scales at just over 17 pounds, 17.31 pounds to be exact.
Shimano launched their new semi-wireless Di2, 12-speed Dura-Ace and Ultegra drivetrains, with this Brixia being the first Ultegra R8100 version to pass through the RBA office. Overall this one-of-a-kind build is stunning in person, so keep a lookout for more on its performance.
