Check three and four posts above

I know there are tons of pages in this thread; if you peruse it you'll see quite a few disc versions in all materials.

Just seeing this now, my apologies.

Yes, while Marco is a traditionalist, he has adapted to the market as he should. He offers many models in a disc version, especially Ti.

While teleguy57 has mentioned already, I try to share offerings from other dealers as well, but I would be more than happy to share others if you want to send me a PM.

If you jump to page 25, there is a nice example another Paceline member created. A Queen disc thru.

Do you have any photos of a TX6.5 in gravel mode? I would think that would be a big seller right now.

I do not personally, as Marco builds most of his gravel frames in steel and Ti, but if one pops up, I'll put up a pic.

Here's a couple of recent builds in the aforementioned.

Il'58

I have a lot of people ask which frame Marco himself spends most of his time on. While he rides/tests each model, the IL'58 is his personal favorite.

Compliments of Instagram for those that don't follow, there is a nice blog on the aforementioned ride. http://www.legendbybertoletti.it/blog/il-58-di-marco/

Apologies in advance for some grammar, and make sure you click English on the top right of the page

Believe it or not, he's a huge fan of wireless, and given the market, along with the tubes at a rider max weight of 75kg(165lbs), it's the best option. He couldn’t achieve the same weight with internal cables because of the drilling needed. He won't do that on tubes this narrow as he feels it would compromise the structure.

The tubes decreases as you go from the front to the rear of the frame. For example, the top tube tapers from 34.9mm at the head tube to 31.8mm at the seat tube. They’re also double-butted – 0.5mm wall thickness in the middle and 0.75mm at the ends.

Don't worry though, he has Super Record on his other, or you could always go with external cabling

No doubt. I've been privy to that.....

The man definitely keeps himself fit. While cycling is his passion, as everyone here, he is a recognized award winning ballroom dancer.

Kudos to him. Absolutely stunning bicycles, always.
