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.
Bianchi’s Reparto Corse (Bianchi’s Race Department) facility hand built frames for their top riders and their sponsored teams back in 1980s and 1990s. In 1996 they released their first aluminium frame – the Bianchi Mega Dedaccai. The name derives from very big – mega downtube which was especially designed to increase the stiffness. It was a predecessor of Bianchi Mega Pro which was used by Pantani and Mercatone Uno in 1998.
Proudly presenting another superb Italian machine – Bianchi Mega Dedacciai by Reparto Corse. Superb frame is made of superlight Zero 18MCDV6 Dedacciai tubing, shinning in typical celeste color, build with Campagnolo Record 8s groupset, Mavic Cosmic 1st gen wheels, San Marco saddle, ITM cockpit, LOOK Bianchi pedals.
