Hi, I’m Walter Milesi, the founder and owner of WALMIBIKE.
I live in the Brembana Valley, which is known for its beautiful nature and breathtaking landscapes. The different textures and colours of the wood around me and my passion for cycling sparked an idea. In 2019 I produced my first handmade wooden bike frame, and this is when WALMIBIKE was born. I have continued to develop and fine-tune the design over the years ensuring the frame shape is modern and reflects current trends.
All frames are hand-crafted using the values of Italian craftsmanship (uniqueness, excellence, and durability), from solid walnut and ash wood, and reinforced with carbon fibers. This means no frame is ever the same. Purchasing one of my frames means you will have a one-off unique product.
With constant fine-tuning and design modifications, the weight of the bike is now 3.4kg, down from 4.4kg.
To finish off, I give the frame a coat of varnish which not only makes it look great but also protects the integrity of the wood. Each frame is also engraved with my logo and product number.
