Framebuilders and athletes of the 90’s dared to be different. Carrera frames embodied the flair and panache of riders like Marco Pantani that rode them into battle.
Utilizing remarkably thin yet stiff Nivacrom Steel developed by Columbus Tubing, Carrera experimented with frames that pushed the limits of their expert builders like Contini.
The frame is everything else than ordinary. The tubes are cripmed in Colnago Master style, the seat stays are bent in a sand clock shape, the seatpost is not clamped but secured by a grub screw instead. And on top there is plenty of shiny chrome and Contini / Cinelli pantographes.
Regarding the components the Campagnolo Chorus 8-speed groupset fits the frame perfectly and runs like a clockwork.
To ensure that you will be able to enjoy this fantastic ride without troubles, our mechanics have checked the bike thoroughly, disassembled it and serviced. When needed some new and in fact fine parts have been fitted just like the handmade Tufo tyres.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original with some small scratches and paint chips. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! All parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in fantastic riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
