New for 2011 is the TF1 race bike from Fondriest. Handmade in Italy, the TF1 is made with a 3k HMF30 carbon fiber. It used a “bonded technique” that allows for 7 frame sizes and a custom-made option. Its sleek lines and classic look makes it an ideal competition bike but can be spec’d for non-competitive rides.

The TF1 is sold as a frame but can be set-up with Shimano Dura Ace Di2 electronic gear, SRAM Red, Campy Super Record or Shimano Dura Ace. Oversized seat tube and bowed stays are an advantage for bigger riders. The frame comes with a BB30/BSA bottom bracket set, a superficial 3k carbon finish and a patent pending dropout with anti-release system for cycle safety.

The medium sized frame weighs 970g while the raw fork weighs 340g. Retail price is $4000.
