Why choose a Bottecchia bike?
Bottecchia is a renowned name in the world of bicycles, known for its Italian craftsmanship, technical expertise, and design. These bikes offer an optimal blend of functionality and aesthetics. Their durable and well-designed frames ensure high performance, while their aesthetic designs reflect attention to detail and the brand's commitment to elegance.
In addition, Bottecchia offers a wide range of products to cater to the different needs of cyclists. From road bikes to mountain bikes, city bikes, and electric bikes, each Bottecchia model is designed by and for cyclists.
Bottecchia, a century of Italian craftsmanship
Bottecchia began its journey in 1924, thanks to the vision of Ottavio Bottecchia, the first Italian winner of the Tour de France. Born out of a champion's understanding of what a bike needs to perform, the brand quickly became synonymous with quality, performance, and the spirit of Italian cycling. Over the years, Bottecchia has consistently met the demands of an ever-evolving industry and maintained a dynamic presence in the world of cycling.
The brand's reputation was further enhanced starting from 1966 when its bikes were protagonists of important victories such as the 1966 Giro d'Italia with Gianni Motta, who defeated Anquetil, or Rudi Altig's victory at the World Championship in the same year. Notable mentions also include the unforgettable 1979 Giro with Saronni snatching the pink jersey from Moser, and the 1989 Tour de France where Greg LeMond won one of the most thrilling editions of the prestigious French race. More recently, Stefano Garzelli's victory in the 16th stage of the Giro in 2010, who also won Tirreno-Adriatico the same year, is remarkable.
Each Bottecchia bike carries on the brand's legacy by combining the best of Italian design with technological advancements to meet the needs of contemporary cyclists. Today, Bottecchia continues to be at the forefront of the cycling world, setting new benchmarks in quality, performance, and design.

What are the advantages of buying a refurbished Bottecchia bike?
Buying a refurbished bike offers three main advantages:
The first is economic. By choosing to purchase a refurbished used Bottecchia bike from Tuvalum, you can save between 20% and 60% compared to the price of a new bike.
The second advantage is mechanical revision. While it is possible to buy a used Bottecchia bike from an individual, most platforms and second-hand product applications do not guarantee the condition of the items being sold. You would have to trust a stranger and risk buying a bike with hidden damages. At Tuvalum, all bikes are meticulously inspected and refurbished by our team of mechanics, ensuring that each bike meets the same technical standards and approvals required by the European Union for new bikes. Additionally, they come with a one-year mechanical warranty and an 18-month buyback guarantee.
Another compelling reason to buy a refurbished Bottecchia bike is its positive impact on sustainability. By opting for a bike that has already been manufactured, you contribute to reducing the carbon footprint generated by the purchase of a new bike. Did you know that a new bike produces a carbon footprint of 300 kilograms of CO2 during its manufacturing process?
