2019 Passoni Fidia

Anyone who grew up watching American television in the 1970s and 1980s will maybe think of the meowing kitty from the end of Hill Street Blues show when they think MTM. But when we say MTM, we’re talking those magical words for a cyclist: Made to Measure. The Passoni Fidia MTM may just be the cleverest bike you’ll ever buy with its strategic mix of titanium and carbon. This is a racing bike par excellence, or per eccellenza as an Italian might say.

It’s not too controversial to say that there are some things that carbon does very well in a frame and some things that titanium excels at doing, and the Fidia is only taking advantage of these elements strengths to help them complement each other and create the ideal frame offering a carbon stiff, responsive ride without sacrificing the suppleness of ti comfort. Passoni have actually taken carbon and titanium filaments and woven them together so you are getting a new carbon structure that will offer a ride quality that feels vaguely familiar and wildly new at the same time. The hybrid tubes are all resined in Italy, and are shaped to maximize stiffness without sacrificing that ti cushioning that will be an essential component of the bike’s raison d’etre. Then the bottom bracket shell and the fittings all use a super strong grade 5 titanium to ensure durability and quick acceleration when you put the hammer down. They have given the rear triangle a wishbone shape at the seat tube/seatstays interface, to maximize rigidity and vertical compliance.

The handling is sharp and snappy, aided by the tapered head tube and the Passoni customized Columbus FEL full carbon monocoque fork. The light and stiff straight blade design gives a no-nonsense feel to the handling helping to keep everything stable with point-and-shoot accuracy. But the most important factor for how well this bike will fit you is that it can and will be made to measure. It’ll cost a bit more and maybe take a touch more time, but when it’s finished, you will have a super bike designed around all your size and ride requirements. You can make it a pure racer for your most important events or angle it more towards a Gran Fondo slayer. It is available with internally wired cables and will of course work with electric or mechanical groupsets.

The Passoni Fidia MTM may be a piece of unrepentant bike jewelry, but at the same time, it will perform up to the highest standards and make you feel like ruler of your favorite routes as you watch all your PRs get faster and faster. But most importantly, you’ll have a perma-smile on your face just thinking about, let alone riding the Fidia.
