|Paolo Salvagione has been building frames since his 18th birthday.
He's built prototype bikes for everyone from Bianchi to Gary Fisher. After
a year in Indonesia setting up a bicycle factory and time in Italy teaching
Titanium 101 he returned to found his own company, Swift Cycles. He now
turns out meticulously crafted, custom framesets for a select few. He calls
it a bicycle built for one.|
