FORMIGLI HAND CRAFTED FOR YOU FRAMES
We are the proud Australian agents for Formigli; bespoke carbon fibre, steel and aluminium frames for the discerning cyclist made by Italian framebuilder, Renzo Formigli.
Coming from a family of cyclists (his grandfather, father and brother were all racers) Renzo first told his mother he wanted to build bicycles at 8 years old. He learned his trade under the late Cino Cinelli who taught him the fine art of steel framebuilding. After initially only building frames for racers, Renzo opened his small studio in Florence in 1990, and now supplies over 40 stores and 3 racing teams (including the famous GS Mastromarco team, the Tuscan nursery of Vincenzo Nibali and Richie Porte).

Each frame is su misura e fatto a mano – made to measure and by hand, and 100% Made in Italy. As your Formigli is only made for you, there are no moulds involved and the geometry is tailored to fit your body and your riding style; for example, if you suffer from back pain the wheelbase can be lengthened to accommodate existing ailments. There are also a number of options available to you to personalise your Formigli, which range from custom paint finishes and 24-karat gold plated lugs to disc braking capability and belt-drives. Just as no two people are alike, neither are any two Formigli frames.
We also offer you the option of taking European delivery of your Formigli; you can order your bespoke Formigli frame with us and then visit the studio in Florence to meet Renzo in person and collect your frame.
