Company established in 1896 in Alessandria by Giovanni Maino. An extremely important brand that modified and improved the bicycle structure by applying slight yet significant innovations. It especially focused on finishing the aesthetics in a functional way.
Maino bicycles shine for their precursory slimness.
In the field of competition, Maino was always in the foreground with its grey bicycles, two names might be enough: Costante Girardengo and Learco Guerra.
