    I asked the same question the retro-classic section and "huayhuash" replied below.


    "I am currently building up a NOS all-steel Fondriest Status frame that is similar to the sale bike you asked about. My frame is from 1998 or 99 and has a threaded fork. The tubing is Dedacciai EOM 16.5 and the frame is very light for steel. The frame in the picture you posted may be of slightly later vintage since it seems to have a threadless fork.

    Ask me about the ride in a few weeks!"

    the bike i was asking about has an threadless steel fork and Deda Optima steel tubing. So if it was built after 1999 it probably has 16.5...

    The tubes are made by Dedacciai and at least some of them are propriatary to Fondriest as evidence by the unique external shaping. 16.5 is a unique tubeset that shares some similar characteristics to the Fondriest tubes but can't be called the same. Most likely, Fondriest uses some reshaped 16.5 tubes with a mix of what looks like Zero/14.5 stays. Good stuff eithe way but slightly on the fragile side.

    Good luck.
