    Daccordi ID process

    Recently came to my possession a daccordi profidea frameset I suppose mid 90s early 2000 model.Not exactly a vintage road bike frame but still is a lovely steel frame of unknown ID to me. I'm looking for info about the model, tubing or other characteristics etc. The frame has oversize bottom and top tube of oval-conical type. Decals both at seat-post tube and fork write Tubazione Selezionate Daccordi Performance with blue background stroked silver. Bottom bracket shell and rear chain-stays have the Daccordi logo engraved plus a 5CNX engraving at the ride top side of the bottom bracket shell. Cable routing for rear brake and gears is external. TIG welding with external seat-post collar and V shape rear brake bridge. I post some terrible pics I have. Any search over the Internet didn't provide any info. If anyone can help me I would be more than grateful.

    Finally I had an answer from Daccordi. I copy paste it here.

    Dear Sir,
    In early 90s we gave these frames as technical supporter to the professional Italian team Selle Italia - Galli, where Leonardo Sierra was one of the stronger rider. Unluckly I don't have any pics now, but probably you can find something on Internet.
    Best regards,
    ......................

    Now the quiz what is wrong with that answer ?
    To my knowledge and after a throughly online search yes Daccordi had provide frame to that team but not this model.
    It seams that my Profidea is a late 90s maybe early 2000 model.
    The same shape and details it has are similar to a white Profidea I found here:
    http://www.stefanoboggia.it/en/steel...profidea-.html.
    its like a tween except color scheme, the 1inch steerer, carbon fork (mine is steel)
    and tube set.

    Still I can't understand which tubeset my model has, it looks like FOCO or EOM from Dedacciai
    If anyone can provide any info about that it will be a great help.
    At that point I'm considering to repaint the frame.
    Happy Xmas to everyone hoping that someone out there can provide any bit of info

    Sorry SilverA, your frame is probably a bit too modern for my knowledge to be of any use to you. I'd agree late 90's rather than early 90's - by about 2003 as far as I can recall, all the new Daccordi's I saw had carbon fork blades. Beautiful looking frame though, I wouldn't repaint it if it were mine, I'd just build it up with a modern group set and wheels and ride it like the wind!

    Thank you Oldpeddaller. I have a mixed Shimano 105 - Ultegra groupset with 3T components and Fulcrum wheelset ready for built.
    I also decided not to repaint it just to fix same color blemished spot.

    I bet its gonna be pretty fast for a steel frame.
    I'm gonna keep this post updated with photos when it is ready

    Beautifully updated SilverA! As much as I typically like Daccordi's wild paint jobs, the original scheme on this example didn't do anything for me, I think you improved and thoroughly modernized it.

    Thank you Chris. The question to paint or not to paint and to keep a balance between originality and "personal aesthetic" it was a really hard desition. I prefer to keep things in there original form but in that case the art director in me took charge. Anyway this is my main bike built mostly for brevets and training. Races are out of question. I'm gonna sum how this bike handles after the first 200 - 300 miles.

    While looking for info on my Daccordi Roll Over (late 90s?), found this threat. Beautifully done SilverA. Is it still rolling?
    My question is: where/why did you find/look for the Columbus nivacrom Nemo decal? My Roll Over built from the same tubes.

    Wow @SilverA very well done. I've missed your thread.
    I am not usually pro respray, but you made it better than the original color scheme. And well built up too.
    I am looking for an early 70s Fiamme Red label wheelset on Camp Record LF.

    Yes the bike is still rolling in fact more than just that.
    You can find original decals at ebay or at old bike shops (that's my case).
    Also you can find very accurate repro's at: Bicycle Decals For Vintage, Classic And Contemporary Cycles or Velocals Bicycle Restoration decals

    Please open a thread and post photos of your frame there not many daccordian's around.

    Thank you 1987 I'm creating a small photo bike journal and my Profidea is the main hero. Hope until end of September to be ready for posting.
