From a young age, Renzo Formigli was surrounded by bicycles and the thrill of racing. Raised in a family of semi-professional cyclists, at age eight, he told his mother that when he grew up, he would build bicycles.
Renzo’s career path was set when he met Cino Cinelli at age 21. Cinelli saw something in Renzo and began to teach him the secrets of a master craftsman, including the step-by-step process of handcrafting steel racing frames.
In 1990, Renzo created Formigli Cycles in Florence and over 26 years, has perfected the art of custom frames. Carbon, steel or aluminium, each Formigli frame is one of a kind.
