Alan was founded in Italy by Falconi Lodovico in 1972. The name ALAN is a composition of the names of his son ALberto and his daughter ANnamaria. And also stands for ALuminium ANodised. ALAN is best known for lugged aluminium and carbon fiber bicycle frames.
Alan collected such an expertise on the field of quality aluminium and carbon fiber frames, that many other brands simply bought frames from Alan and had them re-branded. Colnago might be the most famous one.
The Alan frames were particularly successful when it got rough and muddy. Their cyclocross bikes won no less than 20 (sic!) world championship titles. A series without comparison.
What we present to you here is a smoother version of their bikes. The classic aluminium frame which usually was equipped with the best components available, was made for competitive racing.
The parts on it are also special aluminium ones. It is a rather rare groupset by Cambio Rino in a orange-red anodised finish.
An Eroica-ready bike for friends of complementary colours. Checked, lubed and ready to go.
