BIANCHI EV4 Hyperalloy Reparto Corse frameset, 54cm (2001) – SOLD

Description

Bianchi’s Reparto Corse (Bianchi’s Race Department) facility hand built frames for their top riders and of course Marco Pantani was one of them riding for Mercatone Uno sponsored by Bianchi. Their top model EV4 Reparto Corse is made of lightweight Hyperalloy triple-butted 7k aluminium developed in collaboration with Dedacciai. Aluminum was the material of choice back then, even some his rivals rode full carbon bikes that season. XL EV4 met Pantani’s  specifications with slightly sloping geometry, and a relatively short head tube to suit his aggressive in-the-drops climbing style. Though not super-stiff as compared to today’s carbon fiber machines, Pantani’s bike was very light, even by modern standards.
