We get asked a lot why we continue to ride custom-made (by Antonio Mondonico) all steel bicycles. There are many reasons. Here's Aldo's philosophy on the matter, with which we agree totally.
If you've been around cycling awhile, this photo should bring back memories of the old Brooklyn cycling team. GIOS was their bike supplier back-in-the-day and Aldo and Marco have kept the torches burning ever since, despite a fracture in the relationship with brother Alfredo, who ended up with world-wide rights to put the venerable name on products made elsewhere (Where? You get three guesses and the first two don't count).
With this new project these wonderful bicycles can be sold outside of Italy for the first time in years. If you are interested in a new bicycle, this might be the one for you
We'll hope to see Aldo and Marco later this year at l'Eroica in Tuscany where our friend Maynard Hershon will be riding a vintage GIOS in the event.
Buon lavoro ragazzi!!!
