Dromarti is an English company known for its sales of classic, leather, cycling shoes made in small quantities by Marresi in Italy. Dromarti has now added traditionally built, hand crafted, bicycle frames to its offerings.
The frames are produced in an unidentified "small workshop near Treviso, Italy, employing age old artisan techniques to create a masterpiece in Italian steel."
Both pista and road models are available (temporarily not available in the USA). Both feature feature liberal amounts of hard chrome, engraving and come with a Campagnolo Record headset. Frame weight is 1700g for 55cm.
More details, photographs, and pricing at www.dromarti.com.
Update: the frames are built using Dedacciai Zero Replica HT tubing
