The 3v Volumetrica is a unique blend of design, craftmanship and Italian passion to be forerunner of high-end frame consctruction. In early 1980s, Alberto Masi decided he will design a new frame with increased rigidity and efficency and at the same time maintain lightweight and standard dimensions of seattube cluster, bottom bracket and headset tube. To accomplish this he used thinner walled Swedish steel tubes with larger diameter  and his own internally lugged method in which the frame tubes are cut square to exact size, slippered over the lugs and silver-soldered into position. And so, after several experiments, in 1984 the revolutionary 3v Volumetrica was released. The frames were hand-built from start to finish, about 60 were produced each month.
