At Colossi we have two departments, a customized handmade department and a handmade department:
In the customized handmade department, the tubing is filed by hand, to have the correct fitting, every little part is polished by hand. We use only silver brazing material when we braze. Every frame has the individual approach. One by one, no shortcuts.
In the handmade department, we mill the tubing instead of filing the tubing by hand, but everything is also based on the individual approach. In the handmade we can make a little more quantity but after the milling, the principle of working is the same as in the customized handmade department. For this department we also use the top grade silver brazing material. The frames are made in the same “old fashioned” way, without compromise, with a lot of hand work.
Painting is done with Dupont paint, and can be done to your specification using the pantone color codes.
People do not come to our work shop to buy cheap, because we can’t work cheap, we don’t have a big output of frames, we can’t beat the factories, who use all the new technologies to make frame sets.
The passion for cycling and craftsmanship, thinking in bicycle and having fun in cycling is the basic principle at Colossi. Despite of all the problems we meet every day, this is our drive.
Colossi makes Cr-Mo and aluminum frames and Cr-Mo front forks from the finest raw materials. Using materials such as: Columbus, Kaisei, Reynolds, True Temper, KVA, 4130 butted seamless tubing and Easton. We would love to have the pleasure of making your custom frame, as well as for dealers and OEM companies, with questions you can contact us at any time.
