Classic Lugged cromoly ~

 

Torelli Delirio ~

3.9 pounds (56cm frame, center-to-center)

The Delirio frameset is built with Columbus Zona* heat treated cromoly tubing joined with investment cast lugs. Zona is a high end tubeset made of Columbus' heat treated Nivacrom steel-alloy, the top-of-the-line Columbus steel until the recent introduction of Niobium as used in the Spettro. Like the Spettro, this frame is hand brazed in Italy and features the same renowned Torelli stage race/century geometry. It has been several decades since a frame of this quality has been available in the U.S. at this price! .... $1499.99 with fork (Available options at checkout: Columbus full carbon fork and handmade Torelli cromoly fork)    Add to CART

Specs: requires 70mm Italian threaded bottom bracket, 28.6 clamp-on front derailleur, 1" headset, and 27.2 seatpost  

*Zona tubing: An all-purpose, high performance tubeset with heat treated Nivacrom steel through the main triangle and seamless cold drawn Cyclex steel in the four stays. Zona is specially designed with short butts then super-smoothed to remove any surface defects. The tubes are cold worked to further increase strength with no increase in weight.
 

 

 

TIG-welded cromoly ~

 

Super Strada ~

The Super Strada takes the classic Columbus Zona tubes and forms them into a modern semi-compact design. The slightly sloping top tube provides a more comfortable standover height while the taller 1 1/8 head tube gives stiffer handling and provides for more fork options. This is a machine equally suited for the criterium racer and the budding enthusiast that appreciates the quality of riding a high quality steel frame .... $1299.99 with fork

Note on headset size: Except for the 30th Anniversary, the Nitro Express and the Max, all Torelli steel frames require 1" headsets. The 30th Anniversary requires 1 1/8" headset. The Nitro Express and Max are available in your choice of 1" or 1 1/8" (see above). If you are having us install your headset you needn't worry about size as we'll take care of that automatically.
