Don't let the Cipollini Bond fool you. It might look conventional, but it's hiding its revolutionary bona fides in plain sight. Kind of like how a guy in a tuxedo looks a lot like any other guy in a tuxedo, not a killer blending in to the crowd.
The Bond of the frameset is not James Bond, as some have suggested, but for the fact that this bike is both monocoque and bonded. The main triangle is monocoque, as in it came out of a mold. The stays are assembled separately and bonded to the framethey call it atomlink, and it's a patented process. The thin wishbone seat stays are one piece and each chainstay is another piece. If you look very carefully, you can see where the stays join above the carbon-fiber with aluminum inserts dropouts and also in the ridges encircling the BB386evo bottom bracket.
The bikes more conventional silhouette, addresses another important issue. Compliance. With a smaller downtube, slimmed seat and top tubes, and pencil-thin seat stays, the bike handles rough roads better than any other Cipollini. Also helping aid in the comfort is the telescoping seat post. The post is proprietary to Cipo', is 350mm long and executed in carbon-fiber for light weight. Here, you don't have to sweat sawing a mast.
The Bond's tubes were built with a mix of Toray's T700 and Teijin's UTS carbon-fiber plies, the same as with the Logos. The shapes have been executed differently to provide a different ride, here, one where there's a little more comfort built in while still having a fairly straightforward race geometry.
A number of features of the Bond are found throughout the Cipo' line. Cable routing is internal, and can be set up for either electronic or mechanical shifting. If you go the electronic route, there are fittings at the bottom of the downtube, though, if you prefer, an internal battery can be set up inside the seat tube. The fork has a tapered steerer tube for handling precision, using extra-wide bearings, 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" for greater stiffnesswith the standard 1 1/8 steerer to make finding stems easy. The front derailleur mounts to a derailleur hanger with enough vertical adjustment to worth with both compact and standard chain rings. The BB386evo standard was chosen for the bottom bracket both in terms of how it allows Cipollini to build a stiff bike and how it allows the consumer to specify any modern crank and bottom bracket they want.
