Top quality, flagship frame set from Casati.
The Monza based frame builder has produced some of our favourite frames over the years, and their attention to detail is legendary amongst those in the know. Casati ceaselessly explore the boundaries of what is possible to achieve in a steel frame set.
This frame belonged to an ex-racer, who cared enough to have a custom frame made with his name painted on the top tube.
It features carbon seat stays bonded to oversized steel front triangle for a lightweight and compliant ride.
Dedacciai carbon fork with oversized blades. Internal shifter cables with adjuster barrels at the head tube.
Curious chain stays with rectangular cross-section. Steel rear dropouts.
Typically high quality fillet-brazing work throughout the frame.
130mm rear spacing, ready to build up with any 8 speed group set.
31.8mm down tube, for clamp-on front derailleur.
Standard 27.2mm seat post. Provision for two water bottle cages.
Finished by celebrated painter Carlo Dossena in the typical Casati pearl white with black painted logos.
Visible carbon weave with clearcoat on the fork and rear seat stays. Seat tube has a carbon insert to bring it to 27.2mm.
