Milani Replica.

The Milani Replica in Blue Sky.

At this years Eurobike 2008, held in Germany, are bikes from the 'famous' Italian framebuilder... Natale Milani. Can't say you heard of the name? I must admit its the first for me. These handcrafted machines are currently built in Gallarate in northeast Italy. Milani started his frame building business in 1927 and already crafted a reputation. Two artisans that benefited from Milani are Colnago and Pegoretti! And, top riders Gianni Bugno and Felice Gimondi ridden Milani frames. Steel frames are still hand built and that's why I wanted to show this new beauty. It's called, 'the Milani Replica.' A steel lug classic with a great retro look. It comes in three colors: Blue Sky, Champagne and Ruby. As far as I know, Milani frames are only available in Europe...

Now if only these bikes were distributed on this side of the pond!

I know Celeste and can help you get one if you are interested.

The frame, fork, headset, post and stem are perfect. The bar is close. The carbon controls, patterned spoke wheels and saddle on the show bike were just wrong.

These beautiful bikes and others by Milani are now available at Branford Bike in Seattle Washington.
