Tolmino Gios was a 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 the first bike in a small workshop in Torino, Italy. Soon after, Tolmino’s son Alfredo began working for the family company.
In 1972, BROOKLYN created anew professional cycling team, headed by two of the biggest stars of the era, Roger De Vlaeminck and Patrick Sercu and they choosed GIOS as a bike supplier. 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.
Proudly offering this icon of the cycling history, Gios Torino Super Record, made of Columbus SL tubes, with beautiful ‘‘GT” cut-outs under the bottom bracket shell and pantograph Columbus logo on the headset tube. Good performance is guaranteed with the top of the line Campagnolo Super Record 1st generation groupset and the highlight is a rear derailleur, Campagnolo Super Record 1 st geenration, (PAT. 77), pantograph Cinelli stem, Mavic GP4 tubular wheelset and San Marco Concor saddle.
