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 great riders like Roger De Vlaeminck - 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 built between 1973 and 1977 and ridden by the Brooklyn professional team. The second version was lightly different and the third and final one dates back to 1981-1982, just as the bicycle we are featuring here. The main features are fork crown with typical 'golden' coins – they cover the air-holes used during the welding process – and the brake bridges designed for a recessed bolt.
Regarding the components, this Gios Torino Super Record is equipped with a Campagnolo Super Record groupset, Cinelli stem and bars. To liven things up, there is a Gios Torino pantographed shifters, stem and chainrings. The whole bike underwent a complete restoration in our workshop and the original Gios workshop in Torino which means that the bike is ready to be ridden.
If you are looking for a classic Italian bicycle with top level components and racing pedigree, this Gios Torino Super Record is definitely the right choice. Iconic and terrifically elegant!
