Olmo

olmo_brand

In 2014, Olmo bicycles will celebrate 75 years of Italian bicycle manufacturing. Founded in 1939, by the great champion Giuseppe Olmo, the company continues today to design and build cutting-edge, hi-tech bicycles. Today they develop some of the most advanced carbon frames and have worked hand in hand with companies like Easton and Dedacciai to develop both carbon and metal tubes to specific shapes for proper performance. The prototype designs are all tested on the roads in the seaside mountains of Liguria where optimum feedback brings to the market truly great riding bikes.

Olmo bikes know that the secret to ride quality is geometry. That’s why they’re designed to include:
• Quick steering without the twitchy feel
• Easy control
• The ability to ride without using your hands, but the ability to react quickly if necessary

Club riders, fitness riders and top level racers will appreciate the feel and ride of an Olmo. Our masters team has won several national championships while racing on Zeffiro.

The top model carbon road bike is the Gepin, named after Giuseppe Olmo’s nickname, which features such things as:
• Superlight weight
• Rigidity
• Adaptability to electronic shifting groups like Di2 and EPS. The models Zero Uno and Zero Tre perform as well but in stock sizes 

The bikes are top level race bikes with tremendous quickness and reactivity. The bikes are light, comfortable and have excellent performance but cost hundreds less than more heavily marketed brands.

Olmo has not forgotten the skills of steel frame building and they make some great performing models like the Millenium and Millenium+ as well as the more affordable Mercury and the traditional lugged steel Scatto SLX frames in the San Remo collection. These frames are meticulously welded and perfectly finished.

Era Pro Bike is the #1 seller of Olmo bikes in the USA for many years and we have hundreds of customers ecstatic about their piece of Italian bike history.

Carbon

Two exciting new models represent the diamonds in the Olmo range of racing bikes.  The Gepin (Giuseppe Olmo’s nickname) and the 911 T.T. bikes are the highest level of technology ever produced by Olmo.  These 2 models bring professional level performance to the market but at affordable budget any serious cyclist will consider

GEPIN

The bike model named for the founder, the Gepin is the flagship.  This monocoque frame uses nanotechnology blend with hi mod and hi resistance carbon lay up.  In this way they can increase stiffness, torsional stiffness and lighten the frame.  Central design feature of Gepin is a lowered bottom bracket with extra material for ultimate stiffness in order to increase power transfer.  The geometry also improves descending and eliminates any high speed shimmy.  The comfort zone of Gepin is the ultrathin seatstays and the sloping profile of the head tube and results in a smooth comfortable ride even on rough roads.  The front fork and new head tube design has high technology carbon lay up in order to guarantee steering precision and stability.  Quite simply this bike is FAST!  All cable routing is smart design and accomodates electronic and mechanical systems.  And light!  Our test bike built with Campy Super Record EPS and Campy Bora Ultra wheels weighs 14.4 lbs

The Gepin can be built with parts of your choice.  Groups from Shimano, Sram and Campagnolo.  Call us for a quotation as the range of price can be from $4000 to $10000

OLMO 911 TT.

The new time trial machine from Olmo is the 911 TT.  The carbon monocoque structure is built in the most aerodynamic form with state of the art fork, steering and brake controls to achieve a bicycle that flys against the clock.  Working with the wind tunnel and most forward aero design team, the 911 is the result of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics).  Essentially air flows around the profile of the frame but also wind turbulence is reduced as the air exits from the rear of the bike.  The TRP front brakes are recessed in the fork and the integrated rear brakes rest under the seatstays.  The integrated stem and head tube cap are easily removed to make cable routing an easy job with all cables making direct line routes to brakes and derailleurs.  Many TT bikes have cable routing so poorly designed that the result is terrible performance of braking and shifting.  Olmo engineered the routing with the mechanic in mind and the result is smooth shifts and powerful braking.

911 TT frameset price $3995
Includes fork, seatpost, stem, flat base bar and TRP brakeset
