|The Holdsworth brand was established by Sandy Holdsworth in London in 1927, and began making steel frames in 1933. Their new Heritage Line models have been developed by Lorenzo Altissimo, a 30-year bike industry veteran who is an expert in steel tubing and steel frame production. He was the export manager at Columbus, manufacturer of steel tubing, for 10 years.
To honour him, the most modern competitive Holdsworth frame was first named the Holdsworth Altissimo Corsa.
Elegantly sculpted, triple butted frame tubes are hand cut, mitred and carefully TIG welded to produce a lightweight, steel road frame of uncompromising performance and beauty. With a handmade lightweight carbon fibre fork the Holdsworth Altissimo Corsa is as strong as it is fast. It was the model that brought the Holdsworth story right up to date, blending cutting edge construction and materials with time honoured handmade craftsmanship.
The Holdsworth Altissimo Corsa is full of carefully considered design touches. An oversized tapered headtube helps deliver responsive, pin-point precise steering. accepts a narrow 27.2mm seat post to help keep the weight down. A standard BSA threaded bottom bracket ensures you'll never suffer from BB squeaks like all those press-fit frames.
Carefully sculpted and shaped frame tubes are designed to deliver a responsive, agile ride. It's a bike that's suitable for flat-out competitive efforts as well as long days in the saddle. The tubes are shaped in a way that ensures a laterally incredible stiff rear triangle which still provides that nimble steel suspension.
As with all Holdsworth cycles the Altissimo Corsa was beautifully hand-crafted through each stage of production.
This frameset has been built up as a show bike once but never really ridden.
