We're suckers for a hand-built Italian steel racer here at road.cc. We've already shown you our video of the team drooling over the Passoni stand, now it's Milani's turn.

The new kid on the block is the Gran Corsa, a steel race machine fashioned from manipulated Coumbus tubing. With a short head tube and tight tolerances it's very much in the Italian school of sportive bikes, which is to say it's just a classic road bike really. No quarter asked here, and none given. Mr Milani likes it so much that he gave it pride of place along with the Acciaio Puro - also steel - with the Carbon range toppers filling up the cheap seats at the back of the stand... Enjoy!

There's obviously a chink in the all conquering carbon fibre's armour.

You know what they say: Steel is real!

I've got a 1985 Raleigh with lovely Reynolds 531c tubing that I have to build up soon. It's a nice ride so the sooner I have it back in action the better.
