You can stop searching now. This is the steel frame you've been seeking. The DeFer is elegance, beautiful Dedaccaiai material and classic Italian craft wrapped in one.
Upon delivery, you will be faced with the following dilemma - do you ride it or hang it on a wall to admire all day long. Our advice, do both. It's a pleasurable to ride as it is to admire.
The development and tech story by DeAmina follows...
This is our second frame in steel. After the classic frame with lugs this is TIG welded. We developed with Dedaccaiai a special series of tubes starting from the Zero series. The front triangle uses round butted tubes with a 31.7mm seat tube, 35mm top tube, 44mm down tube and a 46mm head tube. The rear custom triangle uses chain stays that are rectangular at the drop out and round at the bottom bracket while the seat stays are oval. The dropouts are cnc machined from blocks of stainless steel to our design. The cable routing is inter changeable with mechanical external and electronic internal.
