Gran Criterium Classico Frameset

The ultimate Masi race frame, and for many people, the core of what we are as a racing bike brand. Ridden by countless champions from around the world, and by a certain Dave Stoller from Bloomington, Indiana. We painstakingly recreated the iconic lug set, 3D scanning the originals to make sure every angle, every point was exactly how it was. When that was done we reached out to our good friends at Columbus for their SL double butted tub set.

  • The return of the iconic masi road racing machine, painstakingly recreated using exact replicas of the original Gran Criterium lugs.
  • Hand crafted from Columbus SL double butted tubing.
  • NOTE: Frame uses a 70mm, BSA Threaded BB shell. BB must be faced to 68mm if using a modern, 68mm bottom bracket spindle by removing 1mm of material on each side of the shell.

Awesome frameset

So, what do you do with a late 1970s full Campagnolo Super Record equipped bike that ran into something and bent the fork, top tube and downtube, well, order this frameset and use the parts to build a new old bike. Frame is well brazed and beautiful. The threads were properly chased and the bottom bracket perfectly faced out of the box. Parts transferred over nicely from the old damaged bike to the new frameset. The only issues were a new bottom bracket spindle and cutting the crown race to 26.4. This bike rides beautifully and looks just as good. Classic Gran Criterium. Masi says its all about the ride, don't ever stop making this frameset.
