Wherever you go, the Travelissimo can go with you in style. This bicycle fits in a specially-designed rolling Samsonite suitcase with minimal weight increase and incredible convenience when traveling. By utilizing S and S Machineworks™ super-strong torque couplers we’re able to construct a two-piece steel, 953, or titanium frame that doesn't incur airline size surcharges but gives up none of the feel of your favorite bicycle.

Our standard Travelissimo is a short-wheelbase/short-reach caliper sport bike designed to take up to a 29mm tire, typically designed to have a touch more stability than its race-bred Gran Paradiso brethren. Classic or Strada Bianca models may also be built with the coupler option for true go-anywhere/anytime capabilities.

Love it!
The question is, can a larger frame (say a traditional geometry frame with a 60 cm seat tube or so) be made with S&S couplers and still fit in the case?

Yep, no problem - we do it all the time.
