Behind every bike there is always a story that is worthwhile telling. It is almost always connected to the history of a passion. The one of Cicli Montante and of its founder Calogero is a fascinating history. It tells the story of a man that, from a small town in the heart of Sicily, Serradifalco, in the 20’s, driven by his passion for cycling and bikes, began his entrepreneurial journey and founded the Montante Cicli, artisan company that produces bicycles so robust and functional that, in a short time, with a strong reputation for quality and reliability of a bike, started to equip the departments of the « Reale Arma dei Carabinieri » , of the PS and all noble royal houses. The bikes became in a short time luxury items and the most wealthy wanted to collect the Montante bikes.
