Bixxis opened in 2015 from an idea by Doriano De Rosa and his daughter Martina: the aim is to get back the taste for true Italian craftsmanship to produce steel and titanium frames for racing bicycles.

Doriano’s 40-year long experience as frame-builder goes hand in hand with a continuous study of new technological solutions. Doriano and Martina’s passion for cycling is the base for the creation of beautiful artisanal bicycles for the cyclists of our times. This is why the acronym Bixxis stands for “Biciclette Italiane per il XXI Secolo”, that is to say: Italian Bicycles for the twenty-first (XXI) century.

Bixxis’ philosophy lies on essential values: the taste for well-made things, tradition and curiosity for innovation mixed with an ear to bicycle fans, both professionals and amateurs.

Bixxis products are entirely hand-made. Each Bixxis frame is 100% made in Italy, at our Seregno workshop, just few miles north of Milan. We have chosen to use steel and titanium to make frames last longer, and be more valuable. Moreover, by using the TIG welding Bixxis creates extremely light metal frames.

Bixxis wants to offer an original bicycle from its buiding elements. For instance, each Bixxis bike integrates a customized dropout and it’s built from a proprietary set of Columbus tubes, which include design solutions like X-Stays™ to give the frame more strength and optimize on-road performances.

And for the first time Bixxis is at NAHBS 2016 in Sacramento, California. Martina and Doriano are just very eager to meet you at booth #89 from February 26 thru 28 at this unmissable event.

Bixxis “Prima” (Entry for: The Artisan Award):
Prima is the very first steel-frame model crafted by Bixxis, the brand of Italian handmade bicycles founded by the experienced Italian frame builder Doriano De Rosa and his daughter Martina.
The Bixxis Prima model distinguishes itself thanks to its original and unique design solutions. For instance, it features the X-Stays™ System, a design solution within the proprietary tube set created by Doriano De Rosa and produced by Columbus exclusively for Bixxis.
X-Stays™ tubes are designed to enhance the performance of Prima's bottom bracket area under the pedal strokes – giving the cyclist such well-regarded advantages, such as less energy dispersion and an improved bike performance on the ground.
Prima includes also some “tasty” details like special dropouts and integrated headtube, both obtained from one single piece of steel through a CNC-controlled machine.
The bicycle is 100% handmade in Italy at the Bixxis workshop at Seregno, near Milan by Doriano De Rosa through TIG welding,
