Daccordi "Divo"

The few Daccordi bikes I have seen through the years have been nicely built and attractive. The company began in 1937 with Giuseppe Daccordi and a partner. The start of World War II required suspending their business but they were able to re-start after the war ended. During the 1960s son Luigi joined his father in the business.

Today, Daccordi's top of the line frame is the Divo model (above), a 950 gram frame, Made in Italy. A complete bike, as equipped above, has a price of 5,800 euro; the frame, fork, and headset is 3,120 euro. The frame can be ordered to measure, or is available in standard sizes (seat tube center-to-center, slightly sloping top tube) of 43- 46,5 - 48,5 - 50,5 – 53 – and 55 cm. Interestingly, the frame can be had with an integrated mast as pictured or with a traditional seat post configuration.

Details of pictured bike:
Frame: full carbon Divo
Fork: Columbus Carve Mega full carbon
