|Cilo was a Swiss manufacturer of bicycles that filed for bankruptcy in 2002. The bicycles were produced on the shores of Lake Geneva in Romanel-sur-Lausanne in the Vaud canton.
Cilo is an acronym for Charles Jan Lausanne-Oron. The abbreviation of the name from the manufacturer "Jan" was transformed in "i" for pronunciation purpose in French. "Lausanne-Oron" refers to a holding in Lausanne, associated to the industrialisation of the city at the turn of the 20th century.
Hans Knecht became world champion in 1946 riding a Cilo bicycle; other notable riders include Ferdi Kübler, Hugo Koblet and Tony Rominger.
The bike we present here is based on one of their popular 1970s models. The Cilo of the 1970s was a beautifully crafted racing bicycle made of Reynolds 531 with the typical Swiss attention to detail. Regarding the design, Cilo usually went the classic way with little extravagance and decent colours. The material and geometry were as classic as the appearance.
We thoroughly checked this bike and built some new parts on it to help prolong its life another 40 years.
Among other parts, we chose a new wheelset and puncture-safe Continental tires. That way, the bike is capable of handling longer touring as well as shard plastered city streets.
