Think of Bianchi's Eroica as a testament to yesteryear, but with some of the bells and whistles that make today pretty nice. Bianchi lays the foundation with a timeless, lugged steel frame with a ride so smooth, so confident, that every ride will make you wonder why all bikes aren't like this. The heralded features on this Italian-made art piece continue with Campangnolo Silver Vintage components, down tube shifters, and a gorgeous Bianchi crank. The cotton bar wrap under your fingertips will make you seriously question the merits of this new millennium, and Ambrosio Montreal tubulars will serve as your guffaw in the face of the clincher trend. The Eroica definitely qualifies as an "oldie-but-goodie," but don't take Bianchi's word for it—a ride on this baby will seal the deal all on its own.
