Grace

Grace is a real feat of woodworking: a bike made almost entirely from wood.
It was born as a challenge, and ended up redefining my professional goals. I've put my greatest care into every detail, and I couldn't be more proud of the result

Every detail hides a passionate pursuit of excellence.
Each piece was made with one question in mind: how can I make it better?

The mudguards give Grace elegance and lightness. They are the result of meticulous and challenging design. Each mudguard is three layers deep, and consists of 37 pieces.
The pedal drive and 22-speed transmission system give Grace the freedom her spirit demands.

It has tubeless tires and wooden rims, designed to contain the air pressure necessary for a comfortable ride.

The wiring was done inside the frame, leaving only a minimal and indispensable portion of it exposed.

It all started with some Midget Cars tyres

Birth

The story begins with a question: What can I do with these tires? A wooden bicycle was the answer

Growing

Each challenge brought me a new one. I had so much fun that I couldn't stop.

Living

A project from the heart is destined for great achievements. With Grace, many miles have been traveled around incredible landscapes. And above all, Grace has given me the chance to meet wonderful people.
