A first edition 1987 Gios Compact. The bike was built before 1988 and therefore it is eligible to join the “registro storico of Gios“, a historical register founded in order to protect the wealth of technical information related to the blue bicycles of Turin.
The 14 speed Gios is 59cm with Columbus SL tubing. The bike, which is the famous Gios blue, has the engraved Gios marks, dropout ends, brake cable guides and the head badge. The unique feature of the Compact is the ability to adjust the patented rear drop outs which change the geometry of the bike for different conditions.
