A professional cyclist in the late 1960s with Salvarani, Faema and Scic teams,Mino Denti left competitions to grab torch and file in 1979. One year later, he partnered with Salvi Ettore of Delta Bike S.N.C who contributed by turning the Denti brand into a real manufacture. However, Mr. Denti left the bicycle industry before the mass-production took over.
Our particular one has been branded as "Delta", but shows the precision of manufacturing known from all Denti bikes.
The frame is made of a top class steel tubes - 18MCDV6 H.T. steel made by Dedacciai. It is racing level tube set with a slightly oversized cross sections, which improves stability and power transfer. The abreviation "H.T." stands for "heat treatment", which is a process, which improves tensile and yield strength of steel.
Thanks to the material and quality of manufacturing, it is also lightweight. The lugged steel frame weights just 1710 g and the fork 620 g!
