Boutique Italian maker now available direct from the factory

Boutique Italian builders Milani don't currently have a UK importer but they're selling direct to the UK and had some nice machines on their stand. The Replica is a beautiful braze-welded steel affair; it's currently specced with a Record carbon chainset and shifters but the Milani boys were scouting the show (especially the Condor stand!) looking for some more esoteric gear to hang off it. Current UK price is £3,300 - the Euro exchange rate isn't helping Milani at the moment... The N107E is their top-end carbon machine, tipping the road.cc scales at 15.2lb with full Dura Ace 7900 groupset. The integrated seat tube is new for this year, and you can have it in red or white - assuming you don't faint at the £6120 price tag, that is.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.
