Not heard of them? Well if we tell you that DeAnima is the brainchild of Gianni Pegoretti, he of the almost mythical Pegoretti bike family and Matt Cazziniga, the man who brought Soulcraft and Pegoretti to the UK masses, the road crew among you may start nodding with approval as you sip on your barista brewed coffee and chow down on your artisan croissant with hand picked and pressed fruita di bosco preserve.

Numero Uno

Being frame number 1, this is a proof of concept prototype built for our very own aficionado of all things unusual (albeit without the hipster beard), Sanny. So you are looking at the only one in the world – although it will be moving towards the production line soon. Let’s hope Sanny hasn’t managed to persuade them it needs to take fat bike tyres.

Roadie roots are apparent

Featuring a full carbon frame construction using custom Toray T700 carbon tubes, the prototype has been designed to accommodate both 700c tyres and 650b rims shod with 2 inch gravel tyres.

    A chain slap guard on the chain stays might be a good addition, maybe some on the down tube as well!!!
