Back to gallery listing of sold bikes and frames

This frame is sold: Framebuilder Antonio Mondonico developed a women's specific frame geometry allowing women far greater comfort, power and endurance on the bike. Women have shorter torsos in porportion to their legs and bend their backa differently than men. So, Mondonico's Women's frames have both shorter top tubes and extended head tubes to bring the stem and bars higher in relation to the saddle. Specifications are below the pictures.
