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.

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.
