Handmade in Italy

Truly timeless and an instantly recognisable classic, the Galibier packs charisma and a tenacious ride quality. Like its namesake mountain, the Col du Galibier, the Galiber bicycle is steeped in folklore. Introduced by Harry Rensch in 1947, the unique frame design caused a stir amongst post-war racing cyclists. It screamed continental flair and packed a punch with a shape created to eliminate whip, making acceleration and handling better. Our modern Galibier is a perfect reconstruction of one of the most iconic British framesets. The quality of the tubing improves upon Rensch's original selection, but the quirky design remains. Constructed from triple-butted, heat treated steel, the specialist tubes are made exclusively by Columbus for Condor. The high grade steel tubeset is accompanied by dropouts and fork crown that are stronger and lighter than the 1940s version, whilst the bi-laminations are now laser cut for precision detail.
