A Handmade Story
Faggin Bikes is one of the few Italian companies that still produce handmade bicycle framesets in accordance to the highest standards of quality. Founded in northern Italy by the former Paduan cyclist Marcello Faggin in 1945, in 2015 the firm turns 70. Still run as family business in Padua, our core mission is to express framebuilding as a transversal practice across steel, aluminium, titanium and carbon fiber.
The history of Faggin revolves around two cores: international production and support of cycling teams. During the 1980s the leadership of founder Marcello gradually shifted to the racing field, consigning the company management to his four daughters. Marcello’s daughter Cristina is currently in charge for management and his husband Massimo is the craftsman behind Faggin frames since 1976.
