The Gios name is one of the great pillars in Italian cycling history and culture, and the Gios Torino Super Record is a true monument of its time. Manufactured between 1973 and 1982 in three main different versions, the Gios Torino Super Record is - thanks to team Brooklyn and great riders like De Vlaeminck, Sercu, de Wolf and others - one of the most winning and most admired racing bicycles of all time.
Built with light and sturdy Columbus SL tubes ever since, the first models were ridden by the Brooklyn professional team. This first generation frame had distinctive features like the "GT" engraved bottom bracket and the sloping fork crown with the same symbol. Just like our Gios Torino Super Record road bike, which comes in the iconic Gios blue. This paintjob may have been redone at some point and so may the sticker on the top tube.
This frame has one very interesting detail though. Instead of the standard non-reccesed brake bolts, the brakes are mounted directly to the frame and fork respectively. This modification is very rare indeed and could be an indication, that this frame has been done to a special order, perhaps even for a racing team.
Regarding the components, this Gios Torino is equipped with Campagnolo Nuovo and Super Record parts, many of which have been Gios pantographed. Cinelli cockpit, Nisi rims or the NOS Larcia saddle complete this rather special machine.
If you are looking for a classic Italian bicycle with racing pedigree, this Gios Torino Super Record is the right choice. Iconic and elegant!
