Time To Start Thinking About l'Eroica

Enzo sent over some photos of the progress of my bike build for this year's Eroica. Keeping with my theme of jumping back a decade each year, for 2013 I hope to ride this 1920's flip-flop bike. It's a "Touring" which, in your best Italian, is kinda pronounced "tower-ing". That doesn't mean it was a touring bike, just a sub-brand of Bianchi. The parts have been nickel plated, the frame painted by a new contact in Reggio Emilia, and now Enzo is midway through the build process.

So now, let's start counting the days until October! Uno... due...

  1. Looks like it's going to be a great bike for L'Eroica. Looking forward to your report on the ride (living vicariously through you this year).
