Fondriest has a new modern-retro take on road bikes with their SF2 steel lugged frame. Each one is handmade in Italy, and the attention to detail is up there. Here’s the fluffy, pretty description from their U.S. rep:
The meticulously finished, gorgeous pearl-white and chrome lugged steel machine turned heads throughout the week. Made 100 percent in Italy, the SF2 harkens back to cycling’s earlier days, when brazed, lugged construction was de rigueur. The SF2 is made from Columbus tubing and features marvelous detail work. As “hand-built” bikes continue to gain popularity in the U.S., the SF2 demonstrates that Fondriest can match the best of them.
Make the jump for detail pics, they’re quite attractive…
Frame, fork, headset and seatpost will retail for $2,200 USD.
