Exceptional values in classic Italian lugged steel frames
These are the exact same frames our professional team, the Scott-BiKyle Flyers rode for three consecutive years. Light, lively, and dependable, our riders couldn't praise them enough. The geometries are classic Italian stage racing - more comfortable and stable than most. Yet, fast enough to win over 60 criterium races for our pro squad alone!
Though made in Italy, Giordana frames utilize Excell steel alloys from France. Used by many pro riders, Excell steels were originally developed for the aerospace industry. Excell uses special alloys that are heat treated and worked mechanically for the highest tensile strengths available. Two types of alloys are used by Giordana: nickel/chromium in the Superleggero and the main frame of the Eco plus a special chrome molybdenum blend for the Strada as well as the rear triangle of the Eco.
Colors: There are a few single color Giordanas. All the rest are painted in the "backgammon" scheme as pictured below. The available colors are listed for each frame: raspberry red with silver, cobalt blue with white, dark green metallic with silver, Canary yellow with white, fire engine red with yellow, turquoise green with white, or fire engine red with gold.

Ken B. from Az, 10/03: "I have an older Eco coated candy-apple red into which I had S & S couplers installed and it's outfitted with a vintage Dura Ace 7-speed group and those cool Mavic cranks. Of all the bikes that I have ridden it's my favorite -- by far. I like the idea that they have not changed the design in many years. Why should they? It's perfect, I think. Look for me in the Tour de Tucson.
