I am in the process of setting up my own frame brand. The frames will be mainly carbon and completely hand-made in Italy. The plan is to have stock frame sizes and a custom made to measure option for around $150.00 more.
I can't decide on a name for the brand. For obvious reasons I thought of "MAMBO" but a couple of friends think that because they are made in Italy I should go with an Italian sounding name.
An option I thought of along those lines might be "MARTELLO", which means hammer in Italian.
What do you guys think?
Any suggestions would be welcome!
There are so many companies out there who get frames made in Taiwan/China then try to sound cool by having an Italian brand name.
While I'll give you some credit for having Italian made frames, if you are not an Italian company you risk looking like another poser stick brand.
Give each model an Italian name for each one that IS made is Italy (name of the city the frames are made in, biggest hill in the local area etc), but please don't be a sheep and give your American(?) company a fake Italian name
I am swaying towards Italian model names but not necessarily an Italian brand name.
Don't know why this got put into the wheels section though?
After lots of testing tubes and different frame configuration our website is now up and running here and shows all the details about our models (including our lightweight circa 700g model Nuvola):
Once the initial investment is recovered, all profits will go to charity so help us share the love by liking us on facebook here:

All the frames are fully custom made to measure and paint choices are also customized to each client.
I hope you like our webpage.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to improve it.
2nd thing are … prices. Well, it has to be really good stuff to price it ( some of it ) on/ close to the level of LOOK and way above f.e. BH.
From your webpage I don't see any reason to buy TT frame from you, and not BH Aero …. or BMC. Or basically anything exc highest priced Pinarello, Sworks or Colnago
Limtiting warranty for fork to 2y only ?
Web design : content ( vide "warranty" ) is not visible - caused by "background" . Same with menu on some pages.
Zero info about technology : fibers, molding, where is made, how it's made.
Perhaps you do nice gear, but your site completely do not convince me to that. It doesn't make me "hungry"
I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that
