This is #6 of 100... Very sweet with a classy paint job! This one belongs to the head honcho at a LBS.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Akarisho's on a tear. Three posts w/ pictures and weblinks. That is a pretty cool looking bike. What tube set did he go with? I'm a sucker for the chrome lugs and stays.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Mondonico make the top of the line Torelli frames? The owner of my LBS is an old Colnago man from way back when, but his new ride is a Mondonico. Beautiful bike, not sure what steel, perhaps foco(?) but it was very light, probably weighed as much as my Klein, even with a steel fork. Just by picking it up it had a nice feel to it. I imagine it is one sweet riding machine.....

Your not wrong. Mondonico makes the top line Torelli frames. They have had a relationship for a few years. I also saw the same bike at your LBS dino, that you saw. It was a Mondonico with the anniversary paint, all foco with a steel fork. Great frame but I did not like the paint scheme. As the photo showed. Also, the LBS had another Mondonico that was silver. Much better. And yes the bike is a sweet ride!!

This is a sport that not only rewards our efforts but allows us to do that on works of art!!

I sort of liked the paint scheme, then again I like Colnago's with eye popping paint jobs that are probably impossible to touch up (like my Klein).

I think the silver Mondonico was purchased my an employee of the shop.

I'm getting to the point where I'm even comtemplating a brushed sliver titanium bike so I can just focus on the ride and forget of what the bike looks like. A fine state of affairs: Going from a Colnago Master X-Light to a Torelli Nitro Express to a Litespeed Classic. Wish I could afford them all. It all boils down to the best deal for the money and fit...
