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.
