Paolo & Franco Tarozzi, Pianoro, Bologna, Italy. Mr Tarozzi makes many fine things. Many, MANY fine things. In fact he makes so many that it is not commercially viable for me to have even one of everything in stock. But it is no big deal; the folk at Tarozzi are well used to International shipping to all their agents and it takes, on average, about 2 weeks to get the items from the factory into my store.
For example; he makes 105 different types of rearsets, each with 4 variants. So that's 420, right, FOUR HUNDRED AND TWENTY different rearsets alone. Figure the cost, figure the space needed to store them safely. Add in 4 types of handlebar, each with 25 sizes; that is 100 boxes of clipons even with only 1 pair of each size and variant. (and I DO keep every size of clipon in stock, some at 1 pair but the more popular sizes I keep 5 pairs in stock). But that is not the end of it because Mr Tarozzi makes a lot more than clipons and rearsets! How about 828 different types of chrome fork stanchion at the moment but the catalogue increases on a monthly basis?
IF you want Tarozzi product and it is out of stock then this is what you should do:
- Make your purchase online by the 14th of the month and I will have it on order for delivery at the end of that month.
- Let me know (email) on the 15th of the month and it will be arranged for delivery at the end of the following month. Request for payment will accompany the confirmation of the order being ready for dispatch from the factory.
- Simple as that.
