    I'm from Astrakhan, is a small city in a south of Russia. So. I'm start ride on a bicycle about ten years ago. My first passion was a trial riding, about couple of years before I try a downhill bike. That was amazing, my first trip in Mountain for downhill riding was full of pain. But it was fun and I found my real passion.

    In 2011 I had a dream, build a bicycle, but i live in small town in Russia and this was almost impossible. At that moment I don't had a tools, knowledge and workshop. I decided start to work in my garage. When i built my first frame, from cheapest aluminium tubes, in my workshop stay only one table, welding machine, vise and couple of metal file. The frame was ugly and heavy, on next few months I built a five aluminium frame just for training. Also I built one fixed gear bike which based on my training frame. It was a great feeling, ride on bikes what you built by hand.

    Every time I was thinking about next level. Need a good tools, good material and more knowledges. My favorite way, was a work with steel. I was impressed of smooth line fillet brazing frames, bilaminate, small brazed parts. Combination of steel, stainless steel and brass parts. I had a feeling, if I go on this way, I can show lot of things in my frame. I decided buy a new professional jig and tools, also learning how to work with steel.

    One year I save my money for buy a jig from sputnik tools. Also I started learn every information about framebulding. Everything what possible find in Internet, one hundred videos on YouTube about welding, mitering. Few books about framebulding, million pages of framebulding forums. After my regular job, I went to the workshop and try all this things that I found in Internet. Toresvelo. Custom bikes from the dusty wasteland-12595410463_cdddf4403b_b.jpg

    Usually I ride on a mountain bike, but one time I was in Italy, my friend give me a road bike for trying. So, in this weekend I found my second passion, road bikes.

    In 2014 I start TORESVELO, with new professional tools and few steel tube set. With my friend we make a website. In this year I built few frames and two complete bike, one of those my personal road bike. It was my first big project from drawing to final ride. Frame from Columbus Max tubes with full internal cable routing and bilaminate fillet brazing construction. In thIs frame i tried to emphasize my bilaminate design using paint. I'm start my framebulding journey from road bikes.

    Ummm.....if you want to advertise, you should contact the business office. Otherwise, it's just spam...

    BTW, that guy standing behind the bike in the first photo: Is that Martin Skrelli????

    Is not advertise. No price, no goods for sale, no commercial offer. Just story about framebuilding.
    Martin Slrelli? Never hear about him, it's just me with my personal bike.)))

    Hi everyone! Let's talk about bike from first photo. (Martin Schrelli bike))))
    I built this bike for self. I'm use a Columbus Max tube set, is a classic tubes with extra stiffness. Is more stiff, than classic round tubes.


    My favorite way in design is a mix between old and new. In this bike a modern geometry with full internal cable routing.
    Old stuff is a tubes, bi laminates reiforced, Max fork crown.

    I chose components for maximum performance , i love stiff bike for powerfull sprint rush. Shimano Ultegra set is very lightweight stuff with good price. Thomson equipment have a nice design and is so stiff, as i love. Fizik Volta saddle is very lightweight, have a incredible design and most important features is a round shape of saddle. Flat saddle is a painful for me, round shape of Volta provide more comfort for me.

    Paint scheme is my personal. I call it summer sea.
