Tolmino Gios was born in 1916, ex-professional cyclist, member of the Italian National Team for the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. In 1948 he established Cicli Gios Torino, when he built his first bike in a small workshop in Torino, Italy. Soon after, Tolmino’s son Alfredo began working for the family company and took it to another level.
In 1972, BROOKLYN (chewing gum manufacturer) entered in a pro-cycling as a main sponsor of the Dreher Team (1970-1972), which quit their sponsorship. The new team was managed Giorgio Perfetti and headed by two of the biggest stars of the era, the Paris Roubaix specialist Roger De Vlaeminck and great sprinter Patrick Sercu. From 1973-1977 the BROOKLYN team amassed an enviable list of results including classics such as Paris-Roubaix, Milan-Sanremo, Tour of Flanders and the 1974 Tour de France green jersey. Famous ‘GIOS BLUE’ colour was developed by Alfredo Gios to match stars and stripes on the jersey of the BROOKLYN team. This unique and recognisable colour combined with the success became an iconic part of a rich Italian cycling history…. and to this day enjoys an almost cult among cycling enthusiasts worldwide.
Here we are proudly presenting another Italian steel icon – the GIOS Torino Super Record, which dates back to 1981. Superb frameset is made of Columbus SL tubing which were the tubes of choice for the pro-riders. It’s easy to recognize a special fork crown with iconic ”Gios coins” which basically covered the air-holes used during the forks welding. Completely built with Campagnolo Super Record groupset, Cinelli pantograph Gios cockpit, San Marco Concor saddle, Mavic rims. The bike comes with a vintage merino wool Brooklyn cycling kit and Brooklyn Eroica water bottle. No much words needed.
A real jewel! L’Eroica ready.
