Experimenting, trying oneself out: this could be the synthesis of Marco’s passion for mechanics. This is where Marco’s 360° world of bikes and mechanics begins, because he was born as a “car mechanic” and then started to work in a threading machine and high precision assembly machinery company. In 2006, after a ten-year experience producing frames for downhill bikes and many others, he decided to open a bike shop. He then conceived the passion for customization and for manufacturing useful accessories, different painting techniques and the use of peculiar materials that cycling does not generally consider, which are easy to work with and very ductile. From that moment, many projects were born and still attract mechanic lovers who can admire and create with Marco.
