Our flagship steel frame is as popular as ever, and the original superbike is now even better! Used as a commuter by some, fast tourer or winter trainer by others, its inherent versatility makes it ideal if you don't have space for a stable of bikes. Custom drawn and shaped tube sections used at the seat stays create a responsive frame that minimises rider fatigue and maintains ride quality. The latest model uses lighter and smoother, custom-shaped Columbus Spirit tubing. This responsive triple-butted steel is lively and exciting to ride, whatever the weather.The Fratello frameset is also available with a Tange Infinity steel fork at no additional cost. Perfect geometry for every rideThe geometry of our number one frame is enjoyed worldwide. A slacker head tube compared with our performance range gives you control over tricky surfaces, confidence in busy traffic situations, and the ability to ride all day in comfort. Ovalised tubes The down tube begins ovalised and becomes hexagonal the bottom bracket; the flattened top tube with a squarer shape makes the tube stronger where stress is greatest, but without adding material. The result: our lightest Fratello frame to date. Maximum versatilityGet the grip and comfort benefits of 28mm wide tyres, and ride confidently on taxing surfaces and in difficult weather without having to forgo full mudguards. Fit a rack and increase your carrying capacity.
