Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Alan or Guerciotti owners

Any Alan or Guerciotti owners out there? Can you give me some feed back or pics?

I would say stay away from both.

Alan distributor really offers no real service and they may not be aorund long. So if you have an issue a year from now, good luck.

Guerciotti is the same.

Great bikes but they should seek a more solid distributor.

Yeah, I emailed Guerciotti and they gave me an email address to a shop in PA and no response or answer on the phone. Needless to say what a shame! The have the top American cross racer on their squad and have no way for people to purchase their bikes in America. Whoever designed that business plan should be shot!

Yeah I have the same problem with their distributor over here in Asia (Alan frames). But after "informing" Mr Alberto at Alan, he proves to be a very helpful and informative person. I ended up buying the frame directly from Alan because of this. Love the frame tho

The distributor for Alan frames in the US is Euromedia Group based in Minneapolis and they give a lot back to the sport of cyclocross. Sponsering an elite level team, local races and training nights. They are also sending the junior national champ to Worlds in Germany. The Guerciotti distributor is Torelli in California. Chairman Bill has been the bike business for years and I cannot think of a more stable company around. They are both fantastic frames and have a long history in cyclocross.

I forgot to mention that the top US crosser is no longer riding for Guerciotti, he is on a Cervelo(Hottubes).
