    Gios Torino ???

    Someone just told me that my Gios Torino professional with Franscesco Moser front forks and Campagnola dropouts is NOT a Gios. Does anyone know how to confirm this. Attacted is a few pictures. Thanks

    Doesn't look like any Gios I have ever seen. And "Torino" is not the model, just the city Gios is from. This bike has none of the hallmark Gios features.

    After Colnagos, I would say the most counterfeited bike is Gios. Dunno if yours is fake but it looks like no other Gios that I have seen.

    It's not a Gios. Most have something on the frame to indicate the Gios, especially the bottom bracket, chainstays and fork crown.

    It's got a Moser fork, is it a Moser?

    I did some quick searching and couldn't find a lot of good detailed shots of Moser bikes.
    My name is Steve and I don't have a bent fork anymore :)

    hey...youve got a seat tube decal on the down tube. verrrry interesting. im thinking its an old moser that the decals came off so they owner had a couple loose gios seat tube decals laying around and threw them on. Oh well...if you like the ride...who cares. campy drop outs do point to a high quality frame.
