I met Vincenzo Forgione as a dear friend, a mountain biker, Vincenzo S., in 2020, spoke to me about a dear fellow cyclist who had started an artisan workshop a few years ago.
My friend Vincenzo spoke to me so enthusiastically about the kinematic dynamics of steel and its durability that shortly afterwards, out of curiosity, I bought a used steel bicycle.
But the first purchase was a 1995 Giant Expedition with 700x30 tires.
Soon, finding the steel bike riding very comfortable, also considering my weight 115kg, I started looking for a compatible frame for my height of 1.84m
It happened that in those days I had disposed of a 2016 Haibike Greed carbon MTB, in fact I considered that I was starting to walk more bumpy paths and I didn't want to find myself in trouble with a cracked frame.
The haibike guarantee seemed uncertain and I preferred to bet on steel.
