Romagna is a region where the passion, the devotion, and the love of cycling are at their apex. At the height of their creativity, a local bicycle fanatic from the Romagnola town of Lugo, Oliviero Gallegati, began in 1973 to manufacture exquisite custom road bicycles. SOMEC is the name that Mr. Gallegati decided to give to his new enterprise. SOMEC comes from the Italian “Mechanic’s Society” acronym, “Societa’ Mecchanica”.
In the beginning, the bikes were sold to local cyclists but with increased exposure at international bike shows, SOMEC received orders from many foreign customers fascinated with the work of SOMEC’s superbly skilled artisans.
Now SOMEC distributes its products all over the world.
The SOMEC research and development department has always concentrated on selecting the best materials to develop, in collaboration with their partners, evolving technological solution to offer to cyclists.
Precise controls at different stages of manufacturing combining tests on the end products by using special machines that guarantee reliability and the best performances at the highest level; the resulting tests on the road allow SOMEC to verify optimum performance in all situations.
