Handmade steel bikes
built in Barcelona
My name is Mattia Paganotti,
and I’m a framebuilder
My grandfather Mimi, who used to help me fix my bike, gave me the enthusiasm for cycling. My Grandma Delfina’s brothers were two passionate pistards, in fact, they used to steal money from her pocket to go riding in the Vigorelli velodrome.
In addition, two cousins of my grandma were skilled framebuilders in the 40s who worked in the golden years for F.B. and Campagnolo.
In 2008, as I started riding track bikes, I began to attend workshops of my town’s framebuilders, and then I became passionate about this job.
