The bicycle as an object has been and still is a means of simple locomotion. A cycling seen as a "means of transport" may not be seen as a companion on the journey but as an object and nothing else. I always thought that doing a bicycle would rather mean to build the companion of a long journey within themselves as well as on the external roads.
My frames must then be light and strong, dynamic and robust.
When I came back from my long training laps I always wondered how could that plate of pasta (say a little "large plate of pasta") to be turned in hundreds of miles.
The comparison with consumption of a car came into my mind all the time.
But it was obvious that here the engine was me and that I had already given myself a bit of my spirit to my bike.
My sweat, my stress, they had made that "piece of iron" something alive.
The bicycle had become a friend that can take me away.
It was an insight for me. We wanted a bycicle that was like what I had inside.
I cannot do a lot of frames, my clients are always some friends. Who buys a frame from "Forgione Frames" embraces this philosophy of life or knows that his philosophy at some point is intertwined with mine.
The frame that I can achieve is the result of my time devoted to the person and not the pipes needed to achieve it. When you're bike everything will be as we continued to ride a bike together, as we do with the group of bikers Gesualdo.
