Single-speed runs in the blood, as we see when Dario talks about this unusual gravel bike that tips its hat to MV Augusta with classic freehand pinstriping. One detail he does not mention is the incredibly small, lightweight cable guides he has crafted. Look out for them in the video. Six years into his life as a frame builder, Dario Colombo combines modern and classic techniques with the pragmatic values gained from many hard mountain miles in the saddle.
