FRM of Italy’s “Terrae” – “Fast as a Road Bike, comfortable as a Gravel Bike”

Who is FRM?

“FRM was established in 1991 thanks to the desire of its founder, Franco Ricci Mingani, to bring the culture of mountain biking to Italy. We have been pioneers in our field thanks to the discovery and use of cutting-edge materials and innovative technical solutions. Performance, lightweight, and design have been always our trademark.” – FRMBike.Net

FRM has produced all manner of interesting and lightweight components in the past and continues that tradition today. They were among the first companies to manufacture a composite / alloy stem, although advances in technology have shown bonding those two materials isn’t the best idea for the production of a stem. It’s a good thing FRM pushed forward years ago with production of their very lightweight Scandium line-up of stems, cranksets, and other products.
