Mario M Cipollini BOND Carbon Frameset Green
- Brand: MCipollini
Cipollini was known for being fast, outspoken and stylish, and his passion for the bike seems to have crystalised in the new Bond.
Cipollini builds its frames by hand in Italy, and the Bond’s monocoque main triangle is mated with the independently constructed rear end using a patented Atomlink process, which, disappointingly for Ian Fleming fans, is the bond in question.
Beefy asymmetric chainstays envelop each side of the bottom bracket shell, creating an efficient BB386 EVO unit that sets the bearings as wide apart as possible, while allowing for stiff 30mm axles.
The flattened seatstays meet the teardrop-shaped seat tube as a monostay above the rear wheel cutout, keeping the rear triangle tight, while the triangular top tube and diamond-shaped down tube meet in a muscular head tube that supports the deep-bladed fork.
This is for the frame set only. The photo showed build kit.
