The friend Gianni with his bicycle - Forgione Telai Bicycle frames

Gianni sent us the following text which we report, as usual, without changes on our part. Thanks Gianni!

I met Vincenzo Forgione 5 years ago, shortly after I bought my new carbon bike. I had had a number of experiences with other bikes: aluminum / carbon, aluminum only and my old steel bike, which I thought was obsolete. This new carbon bike satisfied me, but knowing the qualities and characteristics of steel well and having studied them, I was left with the passion of a custom-made steel bike.

For a bike, the main feature is the size of the frame which must be perfectly adapted to each individual build.
This aspect, however, is omitted by all manufacturers and retailers who confuse ideas, offering you a series of technological innovations that are certainly beautiful and sometimes useful, but the idea of ​​being able to make up for the right measure with the tolerances of the handlebar support and the saddle adjustment is not correct as each of us has measures that are almost never perfectly proportioned, therefore we adapt.

The weight of a bike is the simplest technical characteristic for everyone to understand and in fact it is perhaps the first thing you ask a dealer, yet it is not the most important technical data but it is good to know that if you only think about the weight you have to spend a lot of money for super light components.

In June I was finally able to commission Vincenzo for my custom-made bike and I bought medium-level components and when I got on the saddle I experienced a particular sensation, I felt the bike that merged with my body and I had never tried anything. similar to the other bikes, steel absorbs the roughness of the asphalt well and when you pedal you feel the elasticity of the frame that gives you back all the energy you unload on the pedals.

I could have avoided all these words and simply said thank you to Vincenzo but knowing him is a fortune and not only for his art, passion and patience but because he is a sincere, open and respectable person, gifts increasingly rare to find!

Thanks Gianni, send us more photos of your bike rides!

When we receive the comments of those who are using a bicycle with Forgione Frame, we are always a little anxious. L'amica Mariapia con la sua bicicletta - Telaio Gravel Blue -

Our friend Mariapia used her new bicycle for a while, custom made by Vincenzo Forgione , and she arrived at the conclusion of the title of this article: "Steel wins on carbon. !!!".

A side view of the bicycle complete with Mariapia - Gravel Blue frame -

Before the fans of the various sides battle each other over the age-old question of what is better (steel or carbon), we must clarify that - being biased - we cannot and do not want this to become a final sentence or confuse this experience as the right generalization of all cycling travel experiences. It is rather about what some people prefer and, in this case in particular, about the sensations driving those who are trying one of our frames.

A detailed view of the bicycle complete with Mariapia - Gravel Blue frame -

"I was doubtful but now I can say: thanks Vincenzo Forgione thanks to your custom frame for me ... I managed to get back in the saddle ...."
As many say and as Mariapia confirms, custom made frames are the definitive solution to all problems due to bad posture in the saddle and also tend to solve problems that have lasted for a long time.

Another detail view of the bicycle complete with Mariapia - Gravel Blue frame -

"Not only the pleasure of choosing every single detail step by step .....

expression of myself ...
magical bdc !!!! "

Thanks Mariapia, send us more photos of your bike rides!

Other details about this frame
The Dubbio Positivo, the bike Vincenzo Forgione crafted for me, it's a piece of art, actually much more than that. You can admire a piece of art but most of the times it doesn't have any specific use, whereas Vincenzo's bike is a live piece of art! A song used to say "it's beautiful to go around with wings as feet", well this is exactly the feeling I have every time I jump on the Dubbio Positivo, that is I feel free up to the point it seems I'm flying :-)

The most impressing feature of the bike is the perfect fit. It's kind of obvious that a custom made bike will always give you a better fit, but here it's really perfect, sometimes I think I could ride for 20 consecutive hours and still have no issue. In addition to the comfort, the perfect fit means that the bike responds perfectly to any demand from the rider. Often it seems the bike anticipates what I want to do, even if I have not tried wheelies like Peter Sagan's yet :-)

I received and published Antonio's comment on his "AnimA" bike.

Thanks Antonio!

Our friend Gabriele from Modica (Ragusa - Sicily) has already covered some kilometers on his bicycle with a steel frame produced by Telai Forgione.

As usual we sent him a satisfaction questionnaire and he answered as follows.

When does a bicycle come to life? Maybe you can ask Pamela, who wrote the text below that you have to read it absolutely.

We received a detailed letter from friend Michele we want to publish here in full, hoping that it will be useful also to those who are just thinking about acquiring a Forgione chassis.

Thank you Michele for all the time dedicated to us!
