Got this in the email today. Vittoria makes great product, and has been very supportive of local builders. Check out their press release below. Nice to see the growth in cycling bringing industry (and jobs) to the area. I might be wrong but I think they might be moving in right down the street from Geekhouse bikes/HQ boston in the “innovation district.” Would love to see that area become a bike business hub.
