Top quality road frame set from Patelli, who make their bicycle frames by hand in beautiful Bologna. Dating from the early 1990s, the frame has only been very occasionally used and is therefore in excellent condition.
For use with a 26″ front wheel, and a 28″ rear wheel. Rear derailleur cable runs underneath the right chain stay.
Internal rear brake cable routing inside the top tube. Frame was built with 130mm spacing and vertical dropouts for 8,9,or 10 speed. Fork is half-chromed, and the rear stays are three-quarter chromed. All threads are in good condition, and there are no dents or signs of any crashes.
All decals are in top condition, as is the head tube badge. This is a good opportunity to base a bicycle build around a top quality frame, which we at Cicli Berlinetta consider to be every bit as good as the offerings of Colnago, Casati, De Rosa and Pinarello. Patelli are still in business today, building the highest quality frame sets for the discerning cycling enthusiast.
