Giovanni 'Nani' Pinarello, born in 1922, was one of a whole generation of athletes from child-rich families who chose a career in cycling. In the era of Coppi, Bartali and Bobet, he was quite a successful amateur rider with loads of won races. This eventually earned him a contract as professional rider.
The year of 1953 then saw him making his dream come true by using money, which he got as a compensation for handing over his starting place in the Giro, for the setup of a bicycle shop and manufacture in his hometown Treviso.
From then on Pinarello bikes became more and more famous, more and more refined.
In 1975 the company finally achieved its first Giro d'Italia victory. And today there are not many brands with a similar number of triumphs in big races.
And so we present one of thieir bikes: The frame of this bike is made of lightweifght and strong Columbus tubes in the main triangle and it shows some of the nice details we can expect from fine Pinarello bikes. Engraved lugs, chromed chainstay and fork, fancy cable routing through the bb-shell...you name it.
This Pinarello Treviso is equipped with a Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset with the exception of a Super Record crankset. It rolls on comfortable Panaracer tires, clicnhers which make a tire change less complictated.
An elegant bike in good condition which will fit in any Eroica event or simply a pleasant ride.
