Torelli 20th Anniversary Bikes and Frames, new old stock and beautiful used frames

Torelli was started in 1981 by Bill and Carol McGann. From the start, they were dedicated to importing the finest bikes, frames and equipment. Until the era of carbon fiber began in the early 2000s, all of their frames and bikes were built in in small shops in northern Italy. With rare exception, the top end frames were built in the Mondonico shop in Concorezzo, just outside Milan.

To celebrate their 20th anniversary, in 2001 Torelli had 100 special commemorative frames built. Each one was made for a specific customer, either for a shop or retail client. There was never any inventory of 20th Anniversary frames in Torelli's warehouse. Special decals were commissioned and each frame was numbered. All 100 frames were sold. With the exception of the special 650 wheel frames, all were built by Mondonico.

We have a few of these Torelli 20th Anniversary frames. They are steel frames and possess a beauty and quality of ride that only the Italian masters can bring to their art.

If you want to know more About the Mondonico shop, here's a photo gallery and history of this remarkable framebuilding shop

46 cm Torelli 20th Anniversary Genius bike, built with 650c wheels.
Number 47 of 100. 47 cm seat tube, 49 cm top tube
Complete bike, very lightly used, $4,000

Built with Columbus Genius tubing and a Reynolds Ouzo Pro carbon fork.

The beauty of using 650 wheels is it allows a shorter top tube and shorter seat tube. Also, the bottom bracket is not too high, giving a proper center of gravity for good handling and lower top tube for a comfortable bike. Overall, this means a better fit for a smaller rider.

This frame was built in a small shop in Veneto (the Italian region containing Venice).

Equipment:
Custom 650 wheels built with Torelli Modular sealed-bearing hubs laced on to Mavic Open Pro rims
TA crankarms (165mm) with Stronglight chainrings, fitted to a Phil Wood sealed bottom bracket
Mavic brake calipers with leaf springs. These calipers are perfect for riders with short fingers. Superb modulation.
Campagnolo Chorus shift levers & derailleurs
Stronglight O'Light sealed headset
3T women's-specific Eva bars, 3T Mutant stem
Thompson aluminum seat post
San Marco saddle

This frameset was built legendary builder Antonio Mondonico specially for Bill McGann, then owner of Torelli Imports. At the time Torelli Imports was Mondonico's sole customer. In addition, the McGann and Mondonico families were close friends and even took vacations together.

McGann asked Signor Mondonico to built him something magical, to build him a rider's "Durindana". In Italian literature "Durindana" is the legendary sword of Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando in "Orlando Furioso". In English, we know this sword as Roland's Durendel. In the "Song of Roland", Roland is Charlemagne's brave knight who dies in the battle of Roncevaux, wielding his magical Durendel.

Mondonico did indeed build "Durindana" for McGann and the name can be seen on the top tube.

This bike is lightly used and is being sold only because health concerns prevent McGann's properly enjoying this wonderful piece of the framebuilder's art. A bike this good should be ridden.
