Ciocc, for the passionate cyclist, is a brand that recalls the early days of the great Italian handcraft tradition of road frames. It was 60 years ago that CIOCC, working from a small artisan shop, produced high quality frames for some very demanding pro riders. Sixty years later, CIOCC is still visible in the professional ranks as a confirmed leader in the world of road bike frames. The owners of Ciocc - realise the importance of the company's origins, traditions and attention to detail. Ciocc is a market leader of dream-worthy frames that become instant classics and timeless in themselves as well as evolved carbon frames.

Ciocc 'San Cristobal' and 'Replica' model frame sets are made from Columbus double butted drawn tubing, with micro fused brazing, Silva rear dropouts and investment cast lugs. Each with a Columbus hand crafted fork. A new model reintroduced in 2010, each frame is handmade in Italy.

There are many riders that still believe that steel (cromoly) frames deliver the best overall ride. "Steel is real as they say". The story goes that steel road bikes have made a "comeback", but what may be true is that they have never really disappeared. Aluminium frames have become lighter and inexpensive to make relative to a high quality steel frame, but do they ride as well? Fans of steel bikes do not believe so. As recently as 20 years ago, a professional rider making his living from cycling, rode a steel (cromoly) bicycle. Since then, many different materials have come onto the scene some more successfully than others. Other materials might make a frame stiffer, lighter, or more compliant and comfortable than steel tubes, but steel is still the point of comparison, possibly even the "benchmark".

Many of us still look at a professionally built steel frame, and view it not just as a quality frame, but rather as a "work of art" to be admired, and ridden with passion. There is a degree of craftmanship that is absent from many (but not all) of the modern carbon fibre frames.

The Ciocc San Cristobal is beautiful to look at and beautiful to ride. No wonder there has been a resurgence in all things retro.
