The new retro-cool 2012 Fondriest SF2 lugged steel frame was the star at Albabici’s Fondriest presentation at this week’s Dealer Camp in Deer Valley, Utah.
The meticulously finished, gorgeous pearl-white and chrome lugged steel machine turned heads throughout the week. Made 100 percent in Italy, the SF2 harkens back to cycling’s earlier days, when brazed, lugged construction was de rigueur. The SF2 is made from Columbus tubing and features marvelous detail work. As “hand-built” bikes continue to gain popularity in the U.S., the SF2 demonstrates that Fondriest can match the best of them. Here’s a close up look.
