to Castellano Designs. Home of John Castellano and
the world headquarters for pivotless bicycle frame design, the Sweet
Spot® Suspension System, and other things that might emanate from
John’s cranium. Things like his groundbreaking Flat-Plate Chainstay
technology, which John recently patented for softails.
If you’ve been around bikes lately, you’re probably familiar
with some of Castellano’s designs. From his Off-Road Wheelchairs
to the Sweet Spot® Suspension System used by Schwinn,
Ibis, WTB, Breezer and Rocky Mountain, to his tire and anti-dive fork
designs, John’s passion is pushing the envelope of bicycle design
in bold new directions.
Until now, Castellano-designed full-suspension bicycles have only been
available from other manufacturers. Now for the first time ever, Castellano
Designs is manufacturing its own framesets for sale. The first offering
to come directly from Castellano is the Fango™
pivotless aluminum softail, featuring the Flat-Plate Chainstay. This
lightweight climbing machine provides a smooth high-performance ride
in an affordable package.
There are many more of Castellano’s designs in the pipeline, including
resurrection of the bikes formerly known as SilkTi and BowTi, two of
the most revered suspension bikes ever made. Soon they will see the
trail again under Castellano’s own brand, due to the recent unfortunate
disappearance of Ibis. Castellano Designs also has good news for all
you owners of an Ibis Ripley, SilkTi, BowTi or Szazbo—we will
supply replacement parts for each of these fine bikes. More information
about Ibis and replacement parts here.
So take a look around, and come back often for more suspension news
from Castellano Designs.
