ALAN Record Carbonio, Shimano Dura Ace 7400 8s, 55.5cm (early 1990s) – SOLD
ALAN was founded in 1972 by Falconi Lodovico, an engineer who had worked for bicycle manufacturer TORPADO. The name ALAN comes from the first two letters of the Lodovico’s children, Alberto and Annamaria. It was the first company to introduce an all aluminium bike made from aerospace grade aluminum. In 1976, ALAN was again first in developing and manufacturing a production carbon frame made by bonding Torayca carbon fibre composite tubing to cast aluminium lugs a process still widely used today by many manufacturers.
Over the years the firm’s frames were ridden to 20 cycle-cross world championships titles, 5 track world championships titles, numerous one day classic wins, as well as Grand tour stage wins.
Steel was the material of choice for a very long time. Entry level and top of the line frames were made of steel. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, bicycle frame builders were experimenting with different frame and fork sets materials – aluminium, carbon and even wood.
The ALAN Record is a carbon and aluminium lugged frame set. A very unusual combination, since most aluminium frames lacked external lugs and featured welded joints. ALAN did not rely on any welding or brazing process. Rather, the carbon tubes were screwed and glued into the lugs. This construction help make for very light bicycles, coming in lighter than most of steel frames.
Happy to offer early 1990s aluminium ALAN Record Carbonio, built with Shimano Dura Ace 7400/7402 gropuset, iconic Ambrosio Spinergy wheels, 3ttt stem and handlebar, San Marco Regal saddle.
