Designed and 100% Made in Italy following the criteria of classic steel bikes of the Fifties and Sixties, Bianchi L’Eroica is the perfect bike for all the vintage style and cycling aficionados. A new model conceived with the same principles and the know-how developed by Bianchi in 130 years of history, Bianchi L’Eroica was born from a project that involved Bianchi's technical office, product managers and representatives of L'Eroica Register. With its Columbus Zona steel lugged frame, head tube lugs w/chrome finish, shifter lever on downtube and Campagnolo 2x10 speed, Bianchi L'Eroica is a step into classic cycling and Made in Italy history.
