Bianchi is the world’s oldest bicycle-making company still in existence, founded in 1885 by Eduardo Bianchi in Milan, Italy. No doubt, Bianchi is the pioneer of bicycle development since the beginning. They invented equal-sized wheels with pneumatic rubber tires in 1895, first bicycle ever featuring a cardan joint transmission in 1901 and front brake system in 1913.From the end of 1952 to the end of 1968,
Bianchi Reparto Corse built a total of 480 track framesets. In other words, 480 framesets over 16 years or, on average, 30 framesets per year. So, those racing jewels are very hard to find.
Proudly presenting another legendary piece of the cycling history – Bianchi Pista which dates back to mid 1950s. Extraordinary details of the steel frame makes you understand that Edoardo Bianchi was a medical tool engineer, before he started with bike manufacturing. The frame is featuring stunning integrated headset, equiped with Passo Humber system (chainring, chain and cog), Campagnolo Pista hubs, steel Bianchi pista stem and handlebar. No much words needed.
A real jewel.
