Faggin Primavera

Faggin Primavera

A lesser known Italian marques, Faggin are still manufacturing steel frames by hand in the northern city of Padova. They’ve made a successful jump to include world-class carbon-fiber frames in their range, also made by hand, making them one of the few remaining authentic family-run workshops.

Marcello Faggin (pronounced Fah-JEEN) started his company in 1945 and the quality of his craftsmanship eventually elevated his reputation to a world-famous level. Marcello’s daughters, Maria Rosa, Gianna, Carla and Cristina, have been integral members of staff since they were 15 years old and are now carrying on the legacy of their father.

Underneath the sumptuous leather wrap is a Primavera frame, constructed from Columbus Thron. It’s one of three models in the Faggin ‘Fixed’ range, which expounds upon their well-established experience of building frames destined for the velodrome. The Primavera is available in brown, pictured here, or black — both are matched with a copper-riveted Brooks saddle and come equipped with a full White Industries drive train and hubs.

A perfect compliment to your Ermenegildo Zegna suit, the Primavera is available on order from the Faggin website. You can also view the rest of their range, which encompasses both the traditional steel beauties which are so familiar, as well as the ultra-modern carbon fiber frames which will take the family’s name into the mind of the next generation.

    I must admit I really don’t understand the point of wrapping an entire frame in leather. Handlebars, sure, but if you really intend to ride a bike, I have a feeling that it would get grimy and torn up very quickly.

  • Beautifully done for sure…….but why???

  • Anonymous

    Get this wet and pretty soon you’re going to have mould growing all over your bike. Otherwise, very nice bike but without the leather please.

  • Dickzonderman

     It’s like a handbag for men.
    It’s not a everyday bike I suppose.
    Verywell made I must admit.

    • Graeme McGregor

      Or women.

  • Uno_92

    Nah, stop looking at the practicalities, just look at the beauty. I’d pour my heart and soul into looking after this bike just to make sure it was without mould, cracks or grime…as if i’d ever own one.

    • I’m with you. If I owned a bike like this the world would only see it on the most beautiful of days.

  • Corky

    just wonder exactly how much this work of art would cost !

  • Montague

    Seriously, how much is this bike? I could protect the leather with some leather “stuff”. This is an “Art Ride” bike, so I wouldn’t use it as my everyday bike, but when I want to “dress up” and go out. 

  • Uno_92

    frame and forks are 3,400 euro, i’ve emailed the company

  • Where can I get teh toe clips and saddle bag? Love them!

  • looks & certainly is top of the line craftmanship but how weatherproof is this.?.

  • dainius

    put on some leather jacket on and call ur brother beaver

  • awful! come on, form-function…..?? hilarious name for a frame builder, or is it just my hangover….?..

    • Dael Franke

      2 things. 1, The form is glorious. The function is to make whoever is riding it feel like the king or queen of everywhere. It succeeds admirably at both. 2, it’s your hangover. Faggin is a respected family name, and most of us learn not to make fun of people’s names around first grade.
