If there was a World Championship for style and flamboyance, you’d have a hard time wresting it from the shoulders of the Italians. Gabriele Limarzi is a the technical director and designer of RENOVA srl, an Italian firm helping to put the custom back into carbon fiber.
RENOVA srl is based in Forli, near San Marino. Gabriele is a craftsman working with carbon fiber composites to produce frames tailored to the discerning rider — both pro and amateur. This model, fatta in Italia, was constructed from Dedacciai tubing and sports a pair of Marchisio wheels.
Gabriele offers a complete bespoke service, from geometry to components and paint scheme. He says, “The world is full of different solutions for the bicycle, my task is to select the best and offer it. The process takes a few months to see the birth of the bicycle, but makes it unique.”
