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.
Perhaps better known for their aluminium frames, Alan was also at the forefront of the early carbon frames. True to their successful and well proven technique, the carbon tubes were connected by classic aluminium lugs known already from the Record model.
Our Alan R/30 Carbon vintage road bike comes from the 90s and it belonged to the absolute best you could buy back then. Unlike the very early Record Carbonio model its tubes have a slightly larger diameter to improve stiffness. In order to accommodate larger tubes the aluminium lugs had to be modified, yet they have kept their classic design.
As for the parts this cool bike is equipped with full Campagnolo Chrous 8-speed gruppo with shifting operated from the bars. And the rest is equally high class with Cinelli cockpit with 1R inner clamping stem, Mavic Open Pro clincher rims or brand new Tufo handmade tyres.
Some other wearing parts were also replaced for brand new ones so you can enjoy a trouble-free ride.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in good condition. The decals are all original. All parts have been checked and are working fine.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
