    What about Montagna bikes?

    I just bought a Montagna MTN Sport frame off Ebay, but I have never heard of this brand, and couldn't any info, either here on BF or elsewhere on the web. But it was very cheap and looks like a pretty nice frame. It's a rigid steel MTB frame, with TIG-welded EX 4130 triple-butted tubes, bosses for a U-brake, low-rider bosses, a very slack head angle, and a 3-tone blue-white-yellow paint job. Does anybody know anything about this company or model? I'll try to post some pix later, but I haven't received the frame yet.
    Thanks!

    Don't know if your Montagna frame is the same company that built my Montagna frame; and like you, I've not found any info whatsoever on mine.

    Here are a few pics for your comparison, namely head badge and downtube logo....

    Overall:


    Headbadge:


    Rear U-brake:


    Funky bottom bracket:


    Mine is made of Tange MTB double butted steel, seat tube is ovalized at the BB, and the rear end is really compact, presumably for stiffer, shorter, and therefore better climbing carachteristics.
    The whole shebang is Tig welded and appears to be well made.

    Interested to see pics of yours...

    Dia-Tech something or other. Hombre, maybe? Bought them from Niagara Cycles several years ago for a song (like 15$ or something). They are machined and super close tolerance where the arms cross over each other. The sweet red anodizing has faded to a more pinkish color, giving the bike a bit of a feminine touch. I still like it, though.
