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. 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.
This bike we present here is one of those successful cyclocross models from the late 1970s. The unique combination of an advanced lightweight frame, and top quality parts turns this racer into a real milestone in the history of racing bicycles.
Our Alan Competizione Cyclocross is equipped with top of the line Campagnolo Record groupset and some other very fine parts. The brakes are from the Swiss specialist Weinmann and particularly interesting are the wheels. The legendary smooth Mavic hubs are laced Mavic CX18 rims in sweet condition and fitted with classic Wolber cross tyres.This legendary cross bike with fine parts is a good choice and if you are planning to tackle some looser terrain like Strade Bianche, you will simply love it.
