Since I can remember I’ve always been riding, from the backseat of my father’s bike, to a little one with a helping wheel, and then the first bike I bought with my savings, it’s now one of the things that can make my day, and I know that almost every cyclist feels the same.

How it started

Growing up in Rome, I had a gorgeous city full of parks and beautiful streets to ride, moreover I was one of the few people I knew without a moped (the most popular among teenagers) or a car to use, so cycling was really my way of getting around, and through the struggle of climbing the Roman hills, my love for riding grew even more, besides what my friends were saying I really felt that I was more free that all those motorized people waiting at the endless stoplights of the city and getting often in to traffic accidents.

My hunger for knowledge about bikes grew with my passion, and so I started learning by myself, until I got to the point where the fixings I wanted to on my bike where not doable with the few tools I had. My problem was the lack of bike shops on the city and especially in my area, so very often I couldn’t ride my bike even if it needed just a new tube or simple fixing of the brakes.

This gave me motivation to think for a solution for all the people missing the tools to fix their own bikes.


How I want to help people

I am sure that there are many bikes sitting in sheds and garages waiting to get fixed and a lot of cyclists waiting for the opportunity to fix them, so the objective of my efforts will always be to help them get riding again or to make their riding experience better with small improvements.
