Mondonico Frames, new old stock and beautiful used frames

We have a few new frames built by Antonio and Mauro Mondonico in the late 1990s and early 2000s. These frames were built by the masters in their small shop in Concrezzo, Italy. These are steel frames with an extraordinary ride that possess a beauty that only Italian master can bring to their art.

Here's a photo gallery and history of this remarkable framebuilding shop

Mondonico Frames on this page (in size order): | 54cm Spirit | 54 Futura Leggero | 55cm Nemo 70th anniversary | 56cm Futura Leggero orange | 56cm Ultrafoco | 60 cm Nemo yellow | 61cm Foco Final World Tour | 64cm Futura Leggero blue


Mondonico 54 cm Spirit
54cm seat tube x 55.5cm top tube
$2,300 frame only.

Spirit tubing is drawn using Columbus' most advanced steel alloy, Niobium. With Columbus Spirit tubing, a frame can be made out of steel that is marginally heavier than aluminum, yet has the lively springy feel of steel. The top tube is drawn to only 0.45 mm in the unbutted section and the seat tube is just 0.4 mm thick in much of its length. This frame was one of the last frames Antonio and Mauro Mondonico built.
