Giovanni's Comments on his "Domicella bicycle" with a Forgione Frame

We asked our friend John to send us his comments on his new bicycle with Forgione chassis.

We have asked John a few questions:

1) How did you know Vincenzo Forgione and his chassis, and what made you make a tailor made frame?
2) What do you think about your chassis?
3) What are the distinctive features of your Forgione frame?
4) Have you already fitted your bicycle? what impression did you get from using the assembled bike?
5) Would you recommend Forgings Frames to a Friend?

Thanks to John for answering us, and here's his text:

Bici telaio forgione 3Since I'm 30 in cycling cycling and I'm a passionate racing bike, I started in 1987 with a steel slx steel bdc that gave me a lot of satisfaction.
At the time it was the top of the frames, I kept it for 15 years and I would never change it if it was not because the measure was not going to go better.
Bicycle chassis bike 5Poi I took an aluminum bike, which I found very rigid and after a while ruined the thread of the central movement,
he took another triple-thick aluminum with a carbon wagon and fork, I was almost satisfied but perhaps taking a few more holes fell between the rear chassis and the tube.
I decided to go on a 3K carbon frame but honestly I did not find all the decanted lightness, in addition the carbon if you hit a shot do not notice but breaks suddenly.
Bicycle frame forgiveness 6 So then I decided to point me back to the steel frames and turning around the various sites in the net I met Vincenzo Forgione where I noticed a certain passion in making steel frames without using standard measurements.
It has made the frame compliant to all the measurements precisely, lightness, perfect finishings and welds in Silver Filled Brazed, practically everything I was looking for in a racing bike with extra security of steel that is not small.
The first impression I have given is a chassis that absorbs the vibrations well, since this feature does not stress those who guide it thanks to the steel it is made and the inclination of the pipes, of course this means the possibility of staying longer in saddle.
I would definitely recommend it, I consider it a work of art.
