This is my second Zullo. Where my first Zullo was a Tour 91 with its classic lugged design, this time I went for the most advanced offering from Mr Zullo. Let’s be clear, there may be decades of Italian bicycle building experience in the Vergine frame but there is nothing “old school” about its technology and performance. It has that subtle ride that only stainless steel can offer but at the same time perfectly transmits every ounce of effort you put into the ride. This is down to the quality of Mr Zullo’s craftsmanship and his frame design skills.
Mr Zullo was also kind enough to paint it with one of his signature schemes. There is only one word to describe it, “sensational”! One could spend hours just looking at its intricate detailing.
Paul was his usual patient self, fielding all of my various questions. His professionalism just adds to the overall experience of a custom build.
I am now a full convert to the “steel is real” family, no more carbon frames for me!
