    Fondriest MegaChrome

    I was directed over here from the road cycling forum-
    I just got this frame- a Fondriest

    Does anyone have any info?

    its chromoly- or "cromolly" as it says on the sticker- megachrome dedacciai tubing

    on the BB it says 57RUS and 10748

    Someone said it was a Fondriest Megachrome- I have no idea
    Thanks!

    i would agree with that guess... the megachromes usually had a decal saying so. it would be that tubing sticker above the fondriest logo on the seat tube (which is most likely dedacchai)
