Michele Favaloro is an Italian frame builder with a repertoire of building everything from custom hardtail mountain bikes to all-out road racers in your choice of steel, aluminum or carbon fiber. Of late, Michele has begun building three different models of aluminum-framed e-bikes powered by the Italian-made Polini 250w Class 3 motors.
Favaloro’s road focused e-bike frame is the Excalibur. 100% Handmade in Italy overseen by Michele himself. These bikes are one offs and are available in custom sizes only. For $8490 a SRAM Force 1 drivetrain is included, but Favaloro can spec out your build with electronic shifting if desired. Included with the build is an Ursus carbon wheelset. Favaloro reminds us bike weights vary dependent on component spec but claim a 29-pound average. On our scales our size-56 Favaloro tops out just a skosh over that at 29.78 pounds
