Daccordi Historical catalogues
Here is a collection of Daccordi catalogues through the years.
If you are looking for a specific model or cannot find the exact vintage in the record, please remember this peculiarity: until the 80s – 90s, the catalogues were not updated every year because the innovations of the time did not require it. On the contrary, around the 2000s, you may even find two catalogues in the same year.
This happened because the innovations started running fast. Subsequently, with the advent of digital, catalogues have lost their importance, and therefore in recent years the website has often replaced the standard catalogue.
Daccordi has always built custom bikes.
Discontinued bikes and one-of-a-kind pieces are not uncommon. We will list a few, but often you may own a non-listed custom-built bike.

Daccordi catalog 1983
The first official catalogue
The first official catalogue was created in 1983 and covered up to 1986.
Daccordi Turbo was the top model, made with Columbus star-shaped tubings, which characterized the best bikes of many Italian manufacturers in the 80s.
The models with micro fusion lugs differed in quality from those with joints obtained by a mould.
Daccordi catalogue 1987
The 50th Anniversary of Daccordi
The 50th Anniversary of Daccordi, celebrated with the famous Fiftieth Anniversary, with an aerodynamic fork, internal frame cables, a special silver-based colouring, originally assembled with Campagnolo 50th Anniversary groupset.
This catalogue has frames with special hand-painted paint and the first frame made with Oria pipes. Complete bikes are being offered for the first time, and in addition to the 50th Anniversary, there is also a bike assembled with the historic Japanese group Suntour.
Models in the 1987 catalogue:

Daccordi catalog 1994
Griffe is still the flagship model
The Titanus is removed from the catalogue due to low demand. Curiously enough, the Profidea frame was already being produced in those years, but it was reserved for professional teams, therefore not purchasable.

Daccordi catalogue 1996
Daccordi created Ceramix
Ceramix, a Tig welded frame with special aluminium and ceramic pipes. A super special and technologically advanced frame which, however, will have little success.
The Profidea appears in the catalogue, finally available to the public and no longer reserved only for professionals.
Daccordi catalog 1997
Here comes the aluminium
Actually, Daccordi was not among the first to propose this material, because the top steel frames were highly appreciated. But now the legendary Profidea and Opera are joined by the brand new Top Alloy and Mega Tube Alloy, frames still highly appreciated today by lovers of aluminium bikes and considered among the best aluminium frames ever.
Even the mountain bike became aluminium, for complete bikes weighing between 10 and 11 kg. Very light for the time.
|Mega Tube Alloy||Alluminum||Roll Over|
Daccordi catalog 1998
Aluminum becomes the king of the 1998 catalogue
An important fact, from 1998 complete bikes began to be offered, while until 1997 the catalogues were based almost entirely on frames. It is a sign of an epochal change in the world of cycling. Multinationals take over and offer almost only complete bikes, already pre-assembled in Asia. Before, the mechanic/shopkeeper always used to assemble the frame with the components chosen by the customer.
Custom bikes, which until then were the norm, are slowly starting to become a rarity. The Daccordi catalogue follows the trend, although the brand remains an artisanal production based on the work of frame makers.
|Titanio||Top Alloy||Megaconic Alloy|
|Mega Tube Alloy||Alluminum||Roll Over|
|Perla||Furioso||Top Alloy MTB|
|Roll Over MTB||Furioso Evolution MTB|
Daccordi catalog 1999
The 1999 catalogue is only an update of the previous one.
The 1998 catalogue remains – relatively rich in frames and bikes – in force, with the introduction of the special PaintStorm coatings, which are still highly appreciated by collectors of vintage bikes. The Slope model makes its appearance, a bike produced in minimal quantities and therefore rare.
|Megatube Alloy||Top Alloy Mega|
Daccordi catalog 2000
Carbon fibre with Fibra 4
Carbon fibre, a regular material for building forks, takes place on frames with Fibra 4. A more comfortable frame thanks to the 4 carbon rear tubes. But the lightness record remains with aluminium: Fly and Piuma drop under a kilo of weight for the first time in history. Complete bikes of the time weigh less than 7 kg.
The geometries are “sloping“, i.e. with the horizontal tube inclined. Daccordi chooses to tilt the horizontal slightly, maintaining an aggressive style anchored to classic. The choice that is still present on current production.
|Top Alloy||Top Alloy Aero||Top Alloy Mega|
|Profidea Light||Alluminum||Impact MTB|
|Explosive MTB||Young Alluminio||Grinta Crono|
Daccordi catalog 2001
Carbon and aluminium are mixed and blended in several frames
Carbon and aluminium are mixed and blended in several frames. But also steel: the Profibra is a steel frame with a carbon rear triangle.
But the flagship of the 2001 catalogue is the Piuma Team, made with the Colombia Selle Italia Pro team’s colours, which Daccordi sponsors.
For the first time for Daccordi, clothing and some components made externally but under the Daccordi brand are added to the catalogue.
Another pearl of this catalogue is the integrated anti-theft system, thanks to the collaboration with the Bikeguard company.
|Piuma Team Edition||Fibra 4||Fibra 1|
Catalogo Daccordi 2002
In 2002, Daccordi’s first entirely carbon frame appeared: the Fibra. But at the time, lightness was the yardstick for measuring the quality of a bike, and therefore the Piuma with its 980g. remains the top of the range, as well as being the frame supplied to professional riders.
This catalogue includes the Duetto tandem and the Aluminum Kid racing bike – frames that Daccordi has always built, but not always included in the catalogues because made on request.
|Piuma||Fibra 4 aluminium||Fibra 1|
|Fibra 4 Muscle||Piuma Carbon||Vortice|
|Vela||Replica Fibra 1||Vulcano|

Daccordi catalog 2003
The carbon era
The 2003 Daccordi catalogue, in the shape of a giant D, sees the definitive transition to the carbon era. The top model is Race Fiber, which weighs 6.7 kg. Almost all aluminium frames have a carbon part at the rear, while the steel almost completely disappears.
The collaboration with Columbus is almost total in this catalogue: the steel and aluminium pipes are all produced by the Lombard company. But also the “Muscle” series carbon forks and rear stays are all Columbus products.

Daccordi catalog 2004
Giro d’Italia and the collaboration with Colombia Selle Italia Team
The catalogue cover is dedicated to the Giro d’Italia and the collaboration with Colombia Selle Italia Team. And in fact, in the catalogue there is a “Replica” frame, a name given to the frames similar to those used by professionals.
The series of frames with mythical names start: Ercole is the first, followed in 2005 by Sansone and Ulisse. All frames are made in precious carbon and are highly appreciated by enthusiasts.
After a few years of negative trends, the whole mountain bike sector restarts, and in the Daccordi 2004 catalogue there are 4 off-road bike models.
|Race Fiber||Ercole||Fibra 4|
|Fibra 1||Replica Fibra 1||Aluminium|
Catalogo Daccordi 2005
Sansone is the first tube-to-tube carbon frame.
Daccordi’s effort to technically update the frame builders and machinery for carbon fibre reaches its peak with this type of processing, still used today in the most modern and prestigious carbon frames.
Steel frames never disappear entirely, but they are at the bottom of the catalogue, due to low demand.
|Ercole||Fibra 4 HF||Fibra 1|
|Fibra 4 steel||Alu 4|
Daccordi catalog 2006
4 colorazioni speciali
4 colorazioni speciali per Sansone, pezzi unici da collezione: 7mari, Coralli, Acqua e Rose.
Ma il catalogo 2006 è segnato soprattutto da grandi innovazioni tecniche: il “Super Over Spin Drive”, che potremmo descrivere come l’antenato del Press Fit, ideato da Daccordi per aumentare le prestazioni. Il “Drag Reduction Tech” e il “Max Energy Drive”, sistemi ottenuti con simulazioni al computer della galleria del vento, per migliorare aerodinamica e trasmissione della forza alla ruota posteriore.
Tutto il catalogo è caratterizzato da bellissime livree delle bici.
|Sansone Limited Edition||Sansone||Ulisse|
|Attila||Fibra 4 HF||Alu 4|
|Fibra 4 Steel|
Daccordi catalog 2007
2007 is Daccordi’s last year among pro teams
2007 is Daccordi‘s last year among pro teams, as reported on the cover of the related catalogue.
A streamlined record with just a few frames, but all highly appreciated by cycling enthusiasts, starting from the top of the range, the Sansone II series, which manages to solve the problem – familiar to many carbon frames – of shimming.
The integrated seat post era begins, while almost the entire catalogue is developed on carbon fibre.
|Vero CRS||Alu 4||X-Colle|
Daccordi catalog 2008
A catalogue with no big differences from 2007
Basically, a catalogue with no big differences from 2007. Per Daccordi tradition, each model remains in the catalogue for several years. The company’s mission is to keep a product in the catalogue if it is technologically current, without changing it every year for fashion reasons.
It can be noticed how once again mountain bikes and titanium frames enter and leave the catalogue, bikes that are always made on request but often are not included in the production line.
The Norwegian brand DBS, bikes in vogue in the 90s, were almost all produced by Daccordi.
The most famous bikes were the “La Migliore” and “Professionale” models. With a DBS bike made by Daccordi, the Norwegian Kurt Asle Arvesen was the Under 23 World Champion in San Sebastian in 1997.
Daccordi has always produced track bikes—some specifics for the pursuit speciality. You can’t find them in the catalogues because they have always been built on request.
In Italy, many of the bikes from the velodromes of Florence and San Vincenzo (LI) were produced by Daccordi. Abroad Daccordi has supplied track bikes especially for the Asian market. In the photos, a beautiful vintage model that still rides in Australian velodromes.
