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 Chesini

Chesini was founded in 1925, when Gelmino Chesini - a former mechanic - built a bicycle named the Chesini Biciprecision in Nesente, a small village near Verona, Italy.


The Second World War would stunt the growth of Gelmino's brand, but the post-war years brought great optimism to Italy. Chesini felt this atmosphere too, and in 1947 acquired the Cicli Valetti factory in Verona, alongside the relocation of the headquarters to Via San Paolo in the city centre. This would begin the momentum that would bring Chesini bicycles great success.


The expansion of the factory and headquarters allowed Gelmino to pour resources into research and development in an attempt to find new, innovative solutions for Chesini bicycles. The fruits of his efforts would be harvested in 1963, as a Chesini bicycle would be ridden by Flaviano Vincentini to the Solo 100km World Amateur Championship. In the subsequent years, Chesini bicycles of the Italian national team won the 1964 and 1965 100km Team World Amateur Championships.


As Gelmino's son - Gabriele - took control of the company, he oversaw the expansion of the Chesini brand and sponsorship of a series of professional teams. Gabriele decided to halt collateral operations, such as a service centre for sewing machines, as focused on developing the highest quality bicycles.


Today, Chesini still operates from Via San Paolo in Verona and continues to follow a philosophy based upon 'quality and dynamism'.
