Cielo, the frame manufacturing arm of Chris King, has quietly been turning out some of the best steel frames we've ever seen. Their bikes proves to us that it's still possible to create a performance race bike with soul. And while most competitive riders turn over their bikes every season or two, Cielo is crafting frames that defy the "race bike as a tool" mentality. These are just too pretty.
Our GM has one, and claims it to be one of the best riding bikes he has ever owned. One of our mechanics just ordered one, and has been obsessing about the build. The incomparable Radavist posted a fantastic review on his site, and the Road Racer was voted a top 25 road bike by Men's Journal.
