A History of Pinarello

Cicli Pinarello S. p. A. is one of the most recognisable names in the history of cycling. Founded in 1952 by Giovanni ‘Nani’ Pinarello in Treviso, Italy, Pinarello is responsible for some of the most important and revolutionary frame technologies in cycling.


Before starting the Pinarello legend, Nani was a successful cyclist himself. Between 1946 to 1953, he won the Giro delle Dolomiti and Rome-Naples-Rome. However, he gained infamy for being the winner of the 1951 Giro d’Italia maglia nera, the black jersey, awarded to the final finisher.


The following year, his team expelled him from the Giro squad at the last moment, compensating him with 100,000 lire for his troubles. Using the very same money, Giovanni set up and opened a workshop to begin building his own bicycles. The Pinarello shop opened in 1953, achieving a few small successes as a team sponsor during the 60s.


It wasn’t until 1975 before the great history of Pinarello’s palmarès would begin, as Fausto Bertoglio won the Giro d’Italia. From here, the heroic stories would begin. Miguel Indurain’s hour record. Jan Ullrich’s Tour de France victory. Multiple successes and grand tours with Team Sky. Bradley Wiggins’ hour record. All achievements conquered aboard a Pinarello.


10 Tour de France victories have involved a Pinarello bicycle, and models such as the Monello SLX, the Paris and the Dogma are evidence that Nani’s legacy is one of the most successful stories in cycling.

Information about Peugeot

Peugeot is one of the big veterans when it comes to vintage bicycles. Jean Pequignot Peugeot was a Frenchman who built watermills. He also made steel works and in 1882 he made the first bicycle, a handmade high-wheeler. The Peugeot steel work became very useful. During the first world war they produced 63 000 bicycles per year and 10 000 plane engines! Peugeot was keen to draw attention to their classic racing bicycles and as a result they started to sponsor riders. In 1896 Paul Bourillon became world sprint champion in Copenhagen on a Peugeot bike. In 1905 Peugeot got their first Tour de France winner: Louis Trousselier.

Peugeot's cycling success

In the following years Peugeot won the Tour de France a total of ten times, a record no other team has beaten. Peugeot and their rival Mercier wanted to stay in the Tour game, but in the mid 1980s it became very expensive. Pascal Simon and the Peugeot factory team's hunt for the yellow shirt was over. The Peugeot classic racing bicycles were not solely Peugeot manufacture. The frames often came from small, independent craftsmen. But whilst most other teams used the popular and well-known Campagnolo series from Italy, Peugeot preferred classic French parts. The standard were Stronglight crank sets, Simplex dérailleurs, and Mafac brakes.

Peugeot's vintage bicycles

Peugeot made many lines of vintage bicycles, but one of the most popular ones is the PX-10. It was ridden by Tom Simpson, Eddy Merkx and Bernard Thevent. The PX-10 was in production from 1953 to 1990, but when the PX-10 was introduced in 1975, it took over for the PX as the most popular racing bicycle from Peugeot. 

Information about Rossin


Rossin is an Italian classic bicycle manufacturer founded in 1974 and from the beginning it’s had one aim: to win. In doing so, it has become one of the leaders in cycling design and engineering.


In 1973, disagreements arose between Vittorio Ghezzi of Itla and Colnago, after they facilitated Baronchelli’s move to Scic instead of promoting Ghezzi’s new professional team. This fuelled Ghezzi to challenge Colnago and set up a company to manufacture highly competitive bikes. He recruited Mario Rossin, who had worked for many years at Colnago and was a wielding genius. The creative Inzaghi joined them, along with Domenico Garbelli, and Ghezzi’s son. Rossin was officially born on 14th September 1974.


Initially, Rossin bicycles was competing in amateur races and making a reputation for itself from the ground up. It wasn’t until 1977 that Rossin bikes made their professional debut at the Laigueglia Trophy as part of the GBC Itla racing team.


Over the next couple of years Rossin grew in size and reputation and in the early eighties started sponsoring the professional Belgian racing team Daf Trucks, led by Roger De Vlaeminck. Every year that went by allowed their expertise and experience to grow, leading them in 1983 to provide track bikes to the national teams of Russia and America. The bikes were were the first models ever to be equipped with disk wheels (launched by Rossin in the same year), horned handlebars and sloped upper-tube frames.


The competitive accomplishments and refined expertise runs through every Rossin bicycle that is manufactured. It is why now they are still a leader in innovation and bicycle manufacturing. The craftsmanship and history that comes with Rossin bicycles makes it by far one of the finest manufacturers we have at Steel Vintage Bikes.
