Image Gallery: Bianchi L'Eroica Modern Classic

Comments Comments

Described as a ‘new old bike’, the Bianchi L’Eroica is a modern yet timeless classic.

It’s one of just a handful of new production bikes certified to be used in official l’eroica events around the world - events that otherwise only allow pre-1987 machines.

Finished in Bianchi’s stunning and unmissable celeste colour scheme, the l’eroica features a timeless steel lugged frame with Columbus Zona tubing. There’s also a steel lugged fork and beautifully chromed head tube lugs and fork crown lugs.

The shifters are of course on the down tube, the brakes are old school Dia-Compe centre pull, the seatstays are classically milled and the bike features a classic Brooks saddle.

We took a look over this Bianchi L'Eroica at Atelier de Velo in Sydney where the bike retails for AU$5,299 - full specifications below the image gallery.
