Instant Classics - Ciocc 'San Cristobal' (white) and 'Replica' (red) model framesets.  Columbus double butted, drawn tubing, microfused brazing, Silva rear dropouts, investment cast lugs. Each with Columbus handcrafted fork. 

Ciocc, (say like CHEE-OH-CH) for the passionate cyclist, is a brand that recalls the early days of the great Italian handcraft tradition of road frames.  It was 60 years ago that CIOCC, working from a small artisan shop, produced high quality frames for some very demanding pro riders.  Sixty years later, CIOCC is still visible in the professional ranks as a confirmed leader in the world of road bike frames.  Stefano Bonati, Cesare Biondi and Biffi Giuseppe - owners of Ciocc - realize the importance of the company's origins, traditions and attention to detail.  Ciocc is a market leader of dream-worthy frames that become instant classics and timeless in themselves as well as evolved carbon frames.

CASATI LASER


Frameset made of Dedacciai steel EOM 16.5 tubing, it is a unique and personalized creation, custom-made according to the measurements of each single amateur or professional rider. It is a frameset entirely hand-built with true artisanship features, yet utilizing cutting-edge technologies. For example, a silver fillet-brazing process at low temperature using free of any impurity and distilled water so as not to modify the tubeset molecular structure.

The seat post binding mechanism, invented and patented by Casati over a decade ago, is entirely hidden inside the tubing, conveying an esthetically cleaner and more elegant look. Carbon fork, produced exclusively by Dedacciai, it is proven to absorb vibrations and increase the stability and smoothness of the frame. The derailleur cables are guided internally, facilitating the replacement during regular maintenance. Upon request the frame can be made without hidden seat post locking device, replaced by classic locking system and with external cables. Each and every frame is treated both internally and externally by an elaborate rust-proofing process, thus greatly extending the longevity of the product. The painting is an artisan-like process as well, meticulously accomplished in six distinctive steps. The use of top quality paints delivers a pleasant, “ceramic” feel to the touch throughout the frame.

Laser is designed and manufactured entirely at Casati’s facility in Monza.

Upon request, the frame can be equipped with Campagnolo or Shimano components, along with some of the most exclusive accessories available in the marketplace.

Frame weight: Kg 1,550
