Description:

In Mexico City in 1984, Italian cycling superstar Francesco Moser ventured an attempt at the prestigious world hour record. Eddy Merckx had set it in 1972 and it had since been unbroken.

To achieve his goal, "lo sceriffo" took a different approach than Merckx did 12 years before. Merckx rode on a bike with a classic geometry and drop bars, which was lightened to the maximum you could risk for such a power output.
Moser thought differently, he tried to ride his bike as aerodynamical as possible. This involved special clothing and a very special bike. It was not precisely lightweight but the frame forced The rider's body into an aerodynamic position. The machine rolled on disc wheels and featured a bull horn handle bar. His aerodynamic improvements earned Francesco Moser the eagerly anticipated record, which he was able to raise in a second attempt to 51151 meters!

The bike that played such a big part in this triumph became the iconic paragon for all time trial and pursuit bikes of the following years. It was named after the cheer of encouragement which the speaker of Mexico's velodrome used to shout during the attempt of 1984: Va por l'hora! - Go for the hour!

In the following years everybody recognized that a time trial bike had to be like Moser's with low profile frame, small front wheel, disc wheel.
Some riders longed so much for the actual 'real thing', that they finally got the Moser manufacture to produce them as their top model. But since the price for such a frame was extremely high, there were not many made.

So we are happy to present to you one of these gems: A F. Moser 51.151 Va Por La Hora.

Our exemplar is in exceptionally good condition, just as the rare Galli branded groupset, which looks sleek but above that works really great.
