Giordana Steel Framssets
Giordana steel frames are handbuilt in Italy. But interestingly, they are made from French Excell tubing. Excell's alloys were developed for the aerospace industry, but were found to be a perfect match for bicycle tubing.
Giordana frames use stage-racing geometry. Built for the long miles, Giordana frames are comfortable, stable and efficient.
Striking graphics on this beautifully hand-crafted steel frameset
This frame has an internal rear brake cable. Also, the Excell Cromex decal can be seen.
Head tube view showing investment-cast flat fork crown and seat tube water bottle braze-ons.
Rear view showing nicely filed brass where the dropouts are brazed. That takes time and care. This frameset mattered a lot to the builder and it shows.
Here's a gorgeous 59 cm Giordana XL Strada
