Got this beautiful frame on ebay last year, just finish the build last week, might update some new photo recently.

The frame/fork weight 1847g /648g in size 54X54, got 2 metal badges,1 on head-tube , 1 on top-tube, and 3 engraves (fork crown/BB shell/brake bridge), the Faggin logos are all spray-painted, not decals.

For personal curiosity, I wrote to Faggin's website to acquire more information about the frame, and they told me that Padova was built for Faggin's 50th anniversary and was named after the city where Faggin's workshop locate (Padova, Italy).

The frame was made from Oria Mirage tubes, which are rarely known, if anyone got more info about the frame or the tubes, please tell me, thank you~

Really awesome bike.



Pretty as a prayerbook...

And built for speed. What tubing is that frame made from?
Enjoy the ride.

She's made from Oria

She's made from Oria "mirage" tubes, the original Oria sticker was a little flaked so I take it off, and Mirage tubes are so rarely known that I can't even find an aftermarket sticker to replace... I was told that Mirage tubes are very similar to Columbus Genius which are all differential shape Butted inside in main triangle. I can't get more information on internet about it, just know that there might be some Faggin, Torreli, Coppi were made from Mirage tubes in late 90s.

The frame weight 1847g btw, the main triangle tubes are all over-sized and the seat-stays/ chain-stays are also stronger than normal size.
