Experience is a key factor in frame building. Giovanni Taverna, Antonio's grandfather, started the family business in 1947, and they hand-crafted frames as outside contractors for major Italian bicycle names - like CInelli, Colnago, Pinarello, Wilier and Moser - up until the late 80's / early 90's, when the big brands started to outsource their frames in the Far East and local welding was no longer required.
Today Antonio and Ferruccio are highly specialised in hand-crafting frames using only top quality steel, stainless steel and aluminium, made by market leaders like Columbus, Dedacciai and Reynolds.
We are proud to bring these beautiful frames to the UK and they also have "Lombardi" (the name of Racer Rosa's founders) discreetly pantographed on the fork and bottom bracket shell.
Although we specialise in steel and aluminium, we do also offer the carbon-fibre and titanium frame options, for those riders who prefer the qualities of these materials, especially at competitive levels. Also these frames are made to measure and strictly hand crafted in Italy by master artisan frame builders.
Geometries can be Road, Triathlon, Time-Trial, Touring or Track, but we are happy to discuss any specific solution - we even do Tandems. Our frames come in Lombardi blue, but of course if you want a different colour or unpainted we can do that too. The whole process - from measuring to delivery - takes around 10 weeks but we do have a waiting list so contact us for the current delivery time.
