1908 Bianchi at L'Eroica

Did anyone else get to the bike museum at L'Eroica? They had some amazing and historic bikes in there. It was upstairs from the registration area.

This is a 1908 Bianchi fixed gear bike with front brake. Note that the brake is a wooden pad that presses directly downward on the front tire!


Or how about this 1914 BSA (I think). It is said to have completed Paris-Brest-Paris in 1921 and L'Eroica in 2008. That's Fausto Coppi's 50's Bianchi in the backgound.


A very modern looking 1916 Stucchi with a 3 speed flip flop hub!
