Renzo Formigli is one of a dying breed of framebuilding masters. He apprenticed with one of the greatest of them all, Cino Cinelli. Originally, all high performance bicycles were custom-built by hand for a particular rider, based on that individual's unique physical geometry. The framebuilder's task was to understand how a bicycle works and to match the new frame's geometry and handling characteristics to its delighted owner. For 25 years Formigli has perfected his craft, picking and choosing among emerging technologies, blending them with the art and science of frame design he absorbed from the old masters. Every Formigli frameset is crafted with Italian materials. Each is built and painted by hand in Italy.
