History[edit]

Bottecchia is a historical bicycle company that started as a small cyclery of Carnielli and improved in 1924 by Ottavio Bottecchia. A new company with a new name "Bottecchia" was born after the death of Ottavio Bottecchia in 1926. In 1940 the work force of Bottecchia was 100 people and the company became an outstanding race firm with the historical name of Ottavio Bottecchia and under the management of the Carnielli family.[2]

They were the technical sponsor of the Acqua & Sapone professional Italian team, which rode the Giro d'Italia on Bottecchia SP9s in 2010 and on Bottecchia Emme 2s in 2011.[3]

Bicycle manufacture[edit]

Until now Bottecchia makes a lot of race frames. The company also produces bikes for daily purposes and bicycle parts named "BTC" used only internally. The race profile of the company, is recently imported in the trekking line ("tempo libero") by offering a carbon trekking bike for daily use.
