In 1939, four years after setting the World Hour Record, Giuseppe Olmo, nicknamed "Gepin", retired from a successful cycling career. Straight afterwards he set up a bicycle manufacture in Celle Ligure together with his brothers Franco, Giovanni and Michele. The traditional company is still in production today. During the years many excellent bikes have left Celle Ligure to win races all over the world.
One of their top models in the 1980s was the Olmo Competition Leader. Belonging to the first aero experiments of the bicycle industry, this Olmo has been built with Columbus Air tubes – with aerodynamic stays of the second generation – and a complete internal cable routing. Additionally, the down tube shifters were moved in closer together to save that extra watt or two. A classic pantographed Campagnolo Super Record groupset complete this superb racing machine. The cherry on the top is the full chroming which the Columbus tubing underwent. A solution which not only makes this bike even more captivating but also less prone to scratches or rust.
