What is the ideal frame? It is the question that arises who wants to buy a bike. It was started testing on bicycle frames in the 80s and after 2000 have experienced a huge spread carbon fiber and titanium, as materials for construction. But when Lino Messori started working, with his father, the frames were made of steel. That's it. "Once you cycled and it was enough. Now there is the need of titanium, carbon, light alloys ... a bicycle more and more light, more and more complicated." A life, his, dedicated to the work that was also his passion. He always worked, even in recent years. Hammering, still making some little thing, but as a hobby not for money, he is keen to point.
We feel his heart while he tells his life. His bicycles are most perfect, almost all red because they were created by hand by a real Ferrari lover. It was his color, red. And the frames were all chrome plated, because the goal was to provide the customer with a frame that lasts for a long time. He built 150 bikes in his career, all special: the pump inserted into the frame, with the small wheel in front and big behind, forks, all "weird stuff", created by him.
Those who knew Lino, said of him: "everything he did in life was just ordinary." Like the day he made up the holed frame, because there was no one in the store. He wanted to prove to be able to do the bikes. And since then, they all went to see his bikes.
