Why Zeppelin bikes are only available online?
To ensure the best value for money. In this way we avoid any alteration to the price that inevitably would be applied with a typical commercial chain manufacturer-importer-distributor-shop. Zeppelin bikes are sold directly by the manufacturer making it possible to purchase a top of the range bike at an unbeatable price.
I do not see reviews in magazines about the Zeppelin bikes. Why?
Zeppelin Bike for choice does not pursue commercial campaigns in specialized magazines or advertisements or sponsors in order to increase its visibility as inevitably the cost of the advertising campaigns will increse the final cost of bicycles.
Our commitment is to propose instead racing bikes at the highest quality level, with the best value for money in the market with limited runs. We do not aim to volume, but the quality.
Where the bikes are made ?
Zeppelin LZ-1 and Zeppelin LZ-3 are designed and manufactured entirely by hand in Italy. They are made on the specific customer requirements and represent the top range in the Zeppelin bike models.
Zeppelin AIR frames are imported from partner factories and finished and assembled by hand in Italy like the high end range frames LZ-1 and LZ-3 and equipped with the same components.
The wheels are handmade in Italy and tested directly on individual frames where they will be assembled. The choice of materials and components is the result of long and detailed tests carried out on the road with more than 12,000 km traveled throughout Europe in the summer of 2012 and concluded in the spring of 2013. All bike components are at the top of respective range and are available on all Zeppelin Bike models, spokes, rims, hubs and tires are the ultimate combination for a Zeppelin Bike set up in terms of reliability, durability and lightness.
Even the definition of the graphics, the design of waterslide and their application, along with the finishing of frames and final assembly is all strictly hand-made in Italy. Only the best.
