1987, Grandis, racing bicycle, Italy

Salvino GRANDI, born 1920, started building bicycles in 1930. Salvino soon became foreman in a company of Verona. In 1965/66 the company closed.

That is when Grandis began to think about a personal production, with his own brand. At the start of 1980 his sons Ezio and Mario joined the company. The production is now composed of a wide range, focusing especially on “Corsa” and “MTB” models with which Grandis won significant sports events. Nowadays Grandis is still developing and expanding its factory.

Technical notes:

  • High range model
  • Advanced frame (for the time): double-thickness COLUMBUS CR/MO tubes with precision cast junctions
  • Internal gearbox and derailleur cables
  • TTT joint and handlebar
  • SHIMANO “Ultegra” gearbox
