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.

We don't have an on-line shopping cart. See something interesting? Give us a call at (503) 480-2001 or email us at:

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

48c, seat tube x 51cm top tube
$1,999.99 frame and fork

This is number 39 of the 70 special frames Mondonico built celebrating his family's seventy years building frames. Mondonico used Columbus' super-light Nemo steel tubing, making it both extremely light and comfortable.

The beautiful frame is dressed out with chrome lugs, dropouts, chainstay, fork crown and fork tips.

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.

Mondonico Futura Leggero 56cm
56cm seat tube x 56cm top tube, $1,670.00
The price includes frame, carbon Torelli Aspect SL fork with carbon steering tube and Torelli/Tange headset.
This was the distributor's Mondonico display frameset for the Las Vegas Interbike bicycle trade show a few years ago. It was so beautiful we took it home with us.

Mondonico retired after doing a Farewell measuring tour in 2005.  For a few years after, he had a trusted friend build frames using his specific geometry, but did not insist on pinning the lugs of the frame.  This is a Mondonico approved frame, not one built by Antonio himself.

Frame geometry:

  • Head tube: 73 degrees
  • Seat tube: 74 degrees
  • Top tube: 56cm
  • Chain stay: 41cm
  • Wheelbase: 99cm
  • Headtube:  149mm

The chainstay has been polished rather than painted. Changing a wheel won't scratch the paint.
