Giordana Steel Framesets

We do not have an on-line shopping cart at this time. Please call us: (503) 480-2001 or email:

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.

Frames available (posted below): 59cm XL Strada
