A History of Gios
‘Gios blue’ has become as much a part of cycling culture as ‘Bianchi celeste’. Their first foray into the brand we now know and love was in 1948, when Tolmino Gios opened a small bicycle workshop in Turin, Italy. Tolmino had been a professional cyclist in such events as the Giro d’Italia – winning the Gran Premio Camandona – and sought to translate his racing experience into a series of thoroughbred bicycles. However, the first bicycles he built were often highly functional city bikes, and nothing like what is associated with the classic racing Gios frames now known to enthusiasts.
It wasn’t long after Tolmino began building bicycles in his Turn workshop that his son, Alfredo, worked alongside him. It was Alfredo who matched the distinctive blue of the Brooklyn professional cycling team to the finely built frames they would ride; the color was to be iconic. The Brooklyn team achieved success at Paris-Roubaix, Tour of Flanders and Milan-Sanremo on Gios frames, and the images of Roger De Vlaeminck on the pavé of France are vivid reminders of the quality frames the Gios family built.
