Anyone who knows him personally cannot fail to notice his free and jovial spirit fueled by great passions.

That for the bicycle was born as a child, also thanks to the support of his father, who had always fed and encouraged the exploration of the two-wheeled way. vincenzo forgione mtb telai italia

When mountain bikes appear in Italy, Vincenzo is one of the "early adopters" (one of the first users) and, even without abandoning his racing bike, he begins exploring the Irpinia off-road. This is how everyone in the area begins to get to know Vincenzo, both for taking part in competitions and for getting to know and exploring the more challenging routes.

In fact, since the 1980s he has participated in the regional road cycling championships, bringing the passion for two-wheel sports to a virtually virgin land from this point of view.

However, it was only with the appearance of the first mountain bikes that the passion exploded: the desire to participate even more in the life of the bicycle. A desire, to make a complete bicycle from scratch, had driven it for years.

His technical studies had already given the means to carry out everything was needed. The time had come. In 1995 Vincenzo realizes his number one bike that still uses in its outputs offroad along with his friends.

Vincenzo Forgione works and produces his frames in Gesualdo (AV) and can be contacted easily through this site.

Vincenzo guarantees his frames with a lifetime guarantee but above all he puts his face on it.

The passion for cycling wants to accompany your passion with the expert eye of those who not only have practiced and practiced bicycles but, above all, are able to understand the technical problems behind a precision frame designed exactly on your body .

Despite the commitments Vincenzo prefers to speak directly with everyone who wishes to have an handmade Forgione steel frame

The reason for this choice is not commercial but is part of a "behavioral philosophy": in order to create a custom-made bike frame and because the measure is not made only from a centimeter, you need to listen and understand the cyclist's needs.

Sometimes the needs, in fact, are not only reduced to wanting (rightly) to stand upright while pedaling but they are also due to small problems such as postural pain or even to special physical needs, or simply to the personal tastes of those who go to bike.

To finally have a bicycle that makes the most out of your pedaling, so that you can truly feel one with your pedal, Vincenzo will be ready to create the geometry that best suits you and your tastes.

This is why being a Forgione frame owner is more than being a customer of Forgione Telai.
