On show here is Andrey’s Viner Pista Dostoyevsky edition, which he built for his wife. To match the frame’s Italian orgin, the most important parts in this build are naturally from Italy. But that’s not all. Andrey’s conceptual thinking is taking this build one step further. The brands, namely Viner, Gipiemme & 3T used for this build are all based on an abbreviated names! Crazy!
Here’s the full story:
VINER was founded in 1947 in Pistoia, a small town approx 30 miles northwest from Florence, by Mr. Viviano Nerozzi. The brand name is just a contraction of his first and second name VI-NER.
Gipiemme was founded in Milan in 1964 as a high quality machine shop. Their name is the initials ‘GPM’ pronounced as a word. It has been said that GPM stands for “Gran Premio della Montagna”, the high points on mountain stages of the Giro d’Italia.
3T was originally called Tecnologia del Tubo Torinese (Turin Tube Technology), taking its name from the city of Turin, where it was founded in 1961 by Mario Dedioniggi.
