Olivetti Bike Company with American Rotary Phase Converters

As the second of our many stops on our trip to Colorado, we visited with Owner and Designer, Peter Olivetti, of the Olivetti Bicycle Company.

Peter operates his business out of his home workshop in the mountains of Boulder where three-phase power is cost-prohibitive to obtain. In addition, he needs to be able to deliver the custom precision and quality his bikes are known for.

Whether you’re a small home workshop or large production, Olivetti Bike Co. is sure to offer some inspiration!
