The production process
All the Bixxis racing bicycles undergo a wholly hand-crafted production process. Each and every frame is handmade by Doriano De Rosa at the Bixxis workshop in Seregno, Italy – few miles away from Milan.
We start off from the cyclist’s own anthropometric measurement to study and design the best suited frame geometry on CAD. The basic information needed to set off designing is the person’s height, notch-to-ground and wrist-to-clavicle distances, and inseam.
The choice of components such as the fork, the handlebars and the groupset to be assembled onto the frame is likewise important. We at Bixxis can respond to specific requests from the cyclist or guide him or her through the choice of the ideal combination of components according to what will be the primary use of the Bixxis bicycle once it hits the road.
Besides using frame tube sets with X-Stays™, we can make every Bixxis bike even more unique and performing thanks to special details like the one-piece CNC-machined dropouts.
Only when the outcome is positive, tubes are degreased and finely cleaned in order to remove even the slightest leftover.
Now the spot welding can start according to the defined geometry: the frame stucture is thus definitely fixed.
After that we move on to TIG welding.
The frame building process ends with its finishing: we repass threads and face head-part bearing housing to ensure a co-planar fit for the steering bearings.
Needless to say, the frame is checked once again in all its parts, as we already do at each previous production stage.
We suggest to choose within a carefully selected color palette, conceived to reflect Bixxis’s craftmanship spirit.
They’re colors inspired by tradition, underlining the coolness of simplicity: a classic palette that will look good on the road today – just like tomorrow.
Assembly of components
The production cycle ends when we assembre the components chosen during the design stage onto the frame: a new Bixxis is born.
