Information about Olmo

Before introducing Olmo vintage bicycles it is interesting to find out about how this brand was founded and how it became so successful. Giuseppe Olmo was one of Italy's most famous cyclists in the 1930s. With a Italian amateur team called Azzurri he achieved second place in the World Cup in Denmark in 1931. At the Los Angeles Olympics in the following year he was awarded a gold medal in the team time races. He became then a professional cyclist, signed with Bianchi and this partnership was very successful. Between 1932 and 1938 Olmo won the Milan-Sanremo twice and many stages in the Giro d'Italia and the Italian National Road Race Championships. Olmo additionally beat the world one hour record in 1935.

Olmo's classic bicycle venture

When Olmo retired in 1938 he went back to his hometown of Celle Ligure, which is where he founded the classic bicycle brand Olmo Biciclette.These high quality steel bicycles can be compared to the well-known classic bikes of Colnago. Olmo used his experience as an athlete in the development of new bicycles. Olmo's vintage bicycles became very popular and the brand grew to produce not only racing bicycles, but also city bikes and mountain bikes. The production of Olmo bicycles is still located in Italy. The brand remains a very popular choice today, for both the range of vintage bicycles built in the 70s and 80s and the range of new designs which are being developed for the future.

A History of Basso

From a very early stage in his life, Alcide Basso was introduced to the world of professional road cycling. As he was growing up, he could see first hand how his brother's dedication enabled him to to become a world champion.


Alcide, like his brothers, also decided to make his mark on the competitive world of professional cycling. He later become a creative developer of bikes for people who, like himself, regarded cycling as an integral part of their lives. The central motivation of Basso's search for innovative solutions was the unique tradition of Italian cycling, which combines passion and dedication to the development of new technology. One of Basso's first creations, the Gap, was a bicycle dedicated to Alcide’s brother who won the World Championship in 1972.


Since then Basso racing bikes were at the forefront of the cycling world, and the enterprise was driven by the success achieved by the riders of Basso bikes. As Alcide Basso himself states: 'the bicycles that bear my name use only the best materials, mainly derived from the aerospace industry, which are developed and engineered specifically for bicycle use. With these materials we have created the new Diamante, the Astra and the Laguna, all capable of outstanding performances. Every customer must have the certainty to receive a bike that is ‘tailored for him’ in every detail and component. By having the best tool, controlled with extreme care by our technicians, each individual can achieve their best possible performance."
