A History of Faggin

Faggin bicycles are synonymous with traditional craftsmanship and high-quality products. This is due to the work of it’s founder - Marcello Faggin – who, in Udine, Italy, began hand-building custom racing bicycles from steel in 1945. Like many of the great frame builders of his era, Marcello was a former racing cyclist, who had a keen eye for what made a high-quality racing machine.


After two years of operating in Udine, Faggin moved to Padua, where it is still located. However, the post-War years were difficult for the company and it wasn’t until 1970 that Marcello began to focus on supplying professional teams with exquisitely crafted, custom bicycles. As his focus shifted towards racing, he passed management of the brand on to his four daughters, who would continue to design and weld bicycles in their Padua workshop whilst managing what was becoming a global business from home.


As the 1980s progressed, thousands of Faggin bicycles were exported around the world. Enthusiasts of Italian steel were compelled by Faggin’s quality and prestige. Events like the 1984 Olympics – where the Italian pursuit squad rode custom-built Faggin bicycles – only increased the brand’s popularity.


The Faggin story continues to this day, where the finest examples of their catalogue are made by hand in the very same workshop in Padua. Each bicycle is made to measure and the high quality designs outweigh their considerable value.

A History of Frejus

Established in 1896, Emmo Ghelfi founded the Frejus brand in Torino, Italy, building a small workshop in the courtyard of the Piazza Statuto. He would be one of the first manufacturers of bicycles in the whole of Italy, naming his brand after the nearby Monte Frejus, on the border of Italy and France.


Emmo and his brother designed and hand-built every frame Frejus produced, focusing on sleek lines, simple lug-work and balanced handling. The Frejus name grew to acclaim during the 1930s, as the great Gino Bartali rode to victory during the 1935 Giro d’Italia upon a Frejus bicycle. Many successes would follow, from 6 world championship titles to Ferdie Kubler’s win of the Tour de France in 1950. Their world championship successes were immortalised on every bicycle, as for every victory came a new Campione del Mondo stamp on the head tube.


As the second half of the 20th Century turned, Frejus were looking to expand. Sales negotiations with Emilio Bozzi of Legnano began and the Turin workshop was moved to Milan, with the intention of co-producing bicycles with Bozzi. However, this partnership was shortlived following the unfortunate events surrounding Bozzi’s death. It wasn’t long before Bianchi bought the rights to the Frejus name; from then on, Frejus ceased to manufacture bicycles.
