Selle Italia TT Flite, Campy Aero?


53/39 front, don't bother counting rear teeth. fast enough

Delta brakes (thanks ), peculiar crimped tubeset, Dedalo sticker but Lorenzo from Deda doesn't lay claim to these tubes, sez it could be Columbus... She's a bit of a mystery, Conti bikes are rare and so is info about them. The Fleur de Lys is the symbol of Florence and there is (was) a team Santi Conti Galli around there who may have commissioned these frames from Ciocc (check the decal that reads Ciocc by Conti) then turned the Ciocc 'C' into the Conti 'C'. I dunno. Would love to find out more info about these bikes if anyone can help? The swoosh paint turns up on Concorde AND Ciocc frames, so does the Italian Flag panto on the top tube. But the crimping... I've seen a Vitus with similar crimping patterns but only on the top and down tube. ANYWAY she's a goddess, I call her the Contessa, if she was a car she'd be the Ferrari from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Sure she's a little beat only a short ride will blow away any cobwebs... The Ergopower levers are like paddle shifters on a GT. Love. 'Astore' is Italian for 'Goshawk'. Thanks Lynn from for my red wheels!

i never thought that deep vs could look good, but they are totally is workin for you.

Awesome frame

and nice build with the deltas and alloy campy...

I have seen the crimp tubing on a CIOCC (branded as a CIOCC). Such a unique frame - deserves a fresh coat of paint some day.
