Antonio Mondonico is one of the last of a long line of Italian master frame builders, a science and practiced skill that results in a beautiful and efficient racing machine. The acquisition of this ability does not come easily. It is the result of a lifetime of hard work, building in a part of the world in which the good bike is commonplace and only the great bikes gain recognition. And among the great bikes, none is more revered than a Mondonico.
Cycles BiKyle extends our best wishes for a long and healthy retirement to one of our closest friends in the cycling community, Antonio Mondonico. We have just one last frameset remaining from this legendary frame builder, the 52cm Monzo below. If you are a rider that appreciates the ultra-smooth, comfortable, and controlled ride of a handmade Italian frameset from a certified master builder then grab this last masterpiece while you still can.
Personally handmade by Antonio!
Completed just before his retirement, this is one of the last frames made by
Antonio's own hands. It's guaranteed to be one of Antonio's personal beauties.
And this is easily verified by the "old school" alignment pins still remaining
inside the bottom bracket tubes. This is Antonio's top-of-the-line model
featuring heat treated Foco Thermacrom cromoly tubing throughout, Columbus'
finest. Made with Microfusion cast lugs, fork crown, and bottom bracket shell
plus fully forged horizontal dropouts. Includes deluxe chrome package: dropout
faces, fork crown, and right chainstay. Also features Antonio's signature single
bolt seat lug connection for extra shock absorption and exclusive styling. Seat
tube is 57cm center to center with 56.8cm top tube, 72.5 degree seat angle, and
40.5cm chainstays. Paint is genuine Dupont Imron for the most luxurious and
durable finish available - color is soft metallic orange with black decals ....

One of Antonio's finest, the Monza Carbon combines the proven ride of heat treated Columbus Nemo 747 Nivachrom cromoly tubing with wishbone carbon seatstays for even more plushness and road contour in the ride. Especially good for longer miles over technical terrain. Frame weight is just 3.6 lbs. Includes Torelli Aspect carbon fork plus chrome rear dropouts. Color is silver with black decals, as pictured .... $2499.99 Add to CART
Precision alignment pins, a definitive trademark of Antonio's personal craftsmanship, are clearly visible inside the bottom bracket area (see right chainstay pin in BB picture on right).
