is my Daccordi and it's my Italian frame bike. This is the bike
that I ride when I still want to ride with the fast group but have
a more relax feel since this frame flexes more than my two aluminum
road bikes that I ride. This bike shines on high cadence and easy
to accelerate. It's a great sprinting bike but it's also a great
bike to do long distance. Its tubing is Columbus SLX and it is chromed
nicely on its stays and fork, it has unique triple pointed lugs.
The head tube and bottom bracket have web reinforcing for lateral
and fore and aft forces. It's really a nicely made frame, great
to look at.
found the frame again in the flea market held in the Lehigh Valley
Velodrome, Trexlertown Pennsylvania in October 2001 and bought it
for 150 bucks! To be honest, I was not looking for a frame like
this; I was looking for a beater. But the owner of a bike shop pulled
me over and told me that he had a frame that would fit me perfectly.
I looked at him and noticed that he was the same height as me. So
I went over to his area and checked out what he had and I was blown
away with what he had. He had bunch of New Old Stock Daccordi frames
made around 1993 that were never sold.
I bought a size 51 c-c frame and just added parts to it for its
first ride in May 2002. Since then I had the rear cold set to 130
mm, upgraded the wheels, crank set, brakes and brake/shifters. All
Shimano's Ultegra 9 speed components except for the Truvativ Elita
bike is truly a blast to ride.
