2018 Rental Bike Fleet
We will be staying with Basso in 2018, but refreshing our range with a new paint job and some new bling.


2017 Rental Bike Fleet

La Fuga are incredibly proud to return to our Italian routes in 2017 teaming up with the Italian road racing bike manufacturer Basso. Basso reached it’s 40 year anniversary this year and uses its expertise in the motorsport, military and aerospace industry with high performance carbon fibre to produce bicycles entirely manufactured in Italy and with no added alloys or metals. As a result the frames are stronger, lighter and perform better than many other bike manufacturer offerings.


Our 2017 Rental bike fleet will be the high performing Basso Astra in custom a La Fuga colour scheme all finished off with the reliably and performant Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 speed compact groupsets.

Available in all sizes for rental, take the stress out of transporting your bike abroad, and transform your ride experience. Several of our fleet are located in the UK so are perfect if you are over in London on business. Reserve yours here.

Basso Against A Wall

La Fuga have carefully considered the Basso Astra spec to ensure our rental bikes provide the perfect steed to tackle any La Fuga cycling challenge, from cobbles to cols. The bikes look and feel great and give fantastic rides, all the reason to give your own bike a rest and take the opportunity to tackle your challenge on a brand new Basso Astra.

Coupled with an outstanding carbon frame, the bike also boasts top-level Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 speed compact groupsets and Microtech MCT38 aluminium wheelsets.
