When it comes to the history of cycling, there are a few things as iconic and appealing as the "Gios Blue". A paintwork with such an evocative power to be unmistakably associated with the brand from Turin, Italy. Just as this Gios Compact 40th Anniversary in very good condition shows.
Released in 1986, the Compact is one best frames ever produced by Gios. Beside technical innovations already introduced with the Professional model (such as the patented and waterproof seals for the internal routed rear brake cable and the one piece BB-shell with integrated bridge) the Compact features an adjustable droupout system, actually its most significant development.
Being a 40th anniversary model, this Compact approximately dates back to late 1987-early 1998 and is made of sturdy and light Columbus SLX tubes. What could be better than Campagnolo C-Record parts with Delta brakes to equip this racing machine? Just the best of everything, for true Gios fans!
