Tolmino Gios was born in 1916 in Vittorio Veneto and took his name from the little town near where he grew up – which is now a part of Slovenian territory. He had not yet reached the age of two years old, when his family decided to move to Torino, where Tolmino discovered the bicycle for the first time. Later on, Ruggero Radice, commentator of many Giro De Italia’s and Tour De Frances described him as a natural talent, a natural force. Newspapers of the time recorded Tolmino as being a very good long distance cyclist after his most important success in the 1936 edition of the Kings Cup in Milano. The fans went crazy for him and a poll carried out by the Sport Illustrato magazine, ranked him as one of the favourites for both the 1936 World Championships in Berne, and more importantly, the Olympic Games in Berlin that same year. Sadly, Tolmino was not selected for the national team owing to a serious disagreement with the Italian team manager. However, he was recruited by a professional team and participated in several Giro De Italia’s – riding along-side the likes of Bartali, Guerra and Di Paco. Then, in 1948 after the Second World War, Tolmino opened a small bicycle shop. Slowly the shop increased its turnover and employed more and more staff. At the same time, Tolmino also helped young, promising cyclists and 1958, enlisted onto his team Italo Zilioli, a great future champion. In 1959, Alfredo Gios, the first of Tolmino’s sons, joined the company. At their factory located in Torino, they mostly produced city-bikes – from very classical models, to more extravagant ones such as the Policeman and Easy Rider (Picture: Tolmino and Alfredo Gios). Their production was based around higher quality and lower numbers compared to brands like Cinelli, Colnago, Pinarello, Rosin
