Custom Steel Frames

 Dale Saso has been building high-end custom steel frames here in the San Francisco Bay Area, aka Silicon Valley, since 1972. Making both fillet-brazed and lugged frames, he prides himself in the quality and workmanship of every frame he builds.

Saso believes in harnessing the bicycle for transportation and recreation uses.

Have Dale build a frame-set for you

 

When you order a frame from Dale, you work directly with him, the frame builder.

There’s no shop or middleman, and Dale prides himself on being able to communicate with customers and deliver exactly what they want and need. The true test of his work,he believes, is his customers’ rides: the bike should always speak for itself.

I had Saso build a frame-set ...

I had Saso build a frame-set -  a combination of Tange Prestige and Tange Ultimate. Prestige was the road bike 

set, Ultimate the mountain bike set. The Ultimate tubes were larger in diameter than the Prestige tubes. 

Ultimate tubes were used on the top and down tubes to increase frame stiffness.


... this magnificent machine has earned me three California Triple Crowns as well as a 3,000 mile 

transcontinental crossing of the US with PAC Tour....in just 23 days (with over 90,000 feet of climbing to add 

to the fun)! I've also ridden the Saso in over 100 "centuries".


This bike is a true warrior. I swear it possesses some kind of competitive spirit. I love this bike.

Have Dale build a frame-set for you


This is a beautiful, Saso track frame and fork. Custom built by Dale Saso in California (1980's). Very light 

weight. Fully fillet brazed joints. Most likely Imron paint, as that was very common on his frames. Rear track 

dropouts are heavy-duty (unmarked), front dropouts are Campagnolo.
