Last week we received a slightly distressed last minute call from the Rapha HQ with the question if we could provide them with 4 bikes for this years L'eroica ride.
Luckily we had bikes / frames / parts in all required sizes. Some last minute changes had to be made to gears and tyres to make them suitable for the strict L'eroica rules and more specifically the white 'strada bianci' with their steep nasty hills.
From what we gathered the delegation had a good time, zero punctures and only minor mechanical difficulties.
The 4 bikes ridden were an all Italian Bianchi, a Dura ace equipped Koga Miyata, a fully panthographed Gazelle and a tiny triple (period correct!) equipped Red Rossin.
These bikes will be auctioned via the Rapha website over the next 2 weeks. We'll keep you posted, for now here's a picture of our brave heroes.
