Verona, Italy

Zullo has a long history in the framebuilding business, providing framesets for the continental team TVM from 1986-1992 with many wins in the Classics and in the major tours.

Their "Inqubo" model has a replaceble rear dropout that comes in two configurations - vertical, and also rear-facing. While not designed for track spacing in the rear, it is, nonetheless adaptable to either a geared wheel or a single cog I suppose. nInfo on their website seems to indicate that it might be available in both road and track configurations. I never discussed this with them at the show, and only noticed it while flipping through their website.

The blue twin-top tubed "Metro" shows us some style in a single-geared gear bike, just tossing the freewheel and maybe that rear brake produces a pretty righteous bike.

Maybe a trip to Italy next year?
