1908 Bianchi at L'Eroica
 
3 Attachment(s)
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!
