i've no idea really. if i had to guess it'd be due to poor sales and perhaps poor customer service. i haven't heard anyone complain about the quality of their frames, and this thing looks very well made. it sucks to see a small bike company fail, but at least i got to grab one before they were all gone.

Ok, seems possible. How does it ride, and what is your inseam? I'm thinking also about getting one, but not sure if 59 cm is too big- my inseam is 91 cm.

i just spent all the money i set aside for a bike build on my GTB, so it'll be quite some time before this ever gets built up.

i got fitted recently and my proper size is a 52cm (i'm 5'7" with a 30" inseam), so this one may be a tad big for me. i'll find out one day...

@i_love_cycling Dodici unfortunately just didnt have enough business to stay open. They sold very good quality bikes, and was quite popular in the beginning with bike polo
I chatted to the owner and he said that in recent years it has been difficult because no new people are buying bikes or frames!...its very sad because it was a great shop and great bikes!
