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.

Information about Zullo

Zullo is an Italian bike manufacturer founded by Tiziano Zullo. Having competed in both road races and cyclo-cross races as he was growing up, Zullo had developed a keen eye for how bikes should be designed to benefit the rider and their performance. In the early 1970s Zullo himself started to build bicycle frames and his small business began to grow steadily. 

Zullo's success 

In 1985 Zullo created a partnership with TVM, the top Dutch professional team and became then their frame supplier from 1986 to 1992. In 1994 Zullo moved into the production of TIG-welded aluminium bicycles frames. Thie new venture then led to the development and production of combined aluminium and carbon frames.
