    Chesini??

    Hey Everyone,
    I am wondering if Chesini has a website out there anywhere. I am pretty sure they still make frames (stell ones, though?)
    Please point me in the right direction!

    Chesini is no longer the Chesini of old. The family has sold out and there are now two young guys who bought the name because Chesini still has a good reputation in Verona. I doubt they even understand the historical importance of the brand. They also don't build anything whatsoever. Everything is brought in.

    Ah, thats what I was wondering. See I had heard recently that they had built a limited number of track frames using old stock of Columbus tubing so I had hoped maybe they were still building classic style steel frames all around.

    If you want to stick with a Verona builder, you can get a steel frame made by Grandis.
