Alcide Basso acquired the brand Pogliahi Italcorse Milano in 1993. Mr. Sante Pogliaghi saw in the young but already experienced frame maker his natural follower. He passed to Alcide his designs, his special made lugs and seals, the beautiful fork crowns and brake bridges. Those were the years of the development of carbon frames and just few appreciated the characteristics of steel frames. This legacy has been preserved by Alcide Basso until today, when at last many are rediscovering the noble material such as steel frames.
The idea of Alcide Basso is to maintain the same philosophy of Sante Pogliaghi: to propose not only custom bikes, but to offer bikes which are "sewn on".
Pogliaghi made by Basso holds the legacy of an amazing story created by the genius of a man. Whoever owns a Pogliaghi made by Basso owns not only a maniacally cared bicycle, but a bike that brings all the charm of taking a ride in the history of cycling.
