At Chappelli Cycles we pride ourselves on having the best priced, best quality fixies, single speed and three speed bikes available in Australia. In 2012 we won an Australian Design Award for our designs, with judges commenting on the quality of our components and our distinctive designs.
Our bicycle frames are built using strong but light-weight CrMo (chrome moly) and use quality components such as Lasco cranks, Tektro brakes, sealed bottom brackets, Wellgo alloy pedals and genuine leather grips.
Chappelli Cycles are designed in Australia and manufactured at our factory using components sourced from Taiwan and China. The bicycles are checked by our staff in Australia before being shipped out. Weight of the bicycles varies by bicycle type from 10-13kgs.
Each of the models have slightly different specifications – however there are some things that are fairly standard across all our bikes which are listed in the table below. For more details please see the specifications listed for each bike individually.
