WimVDD's neo retro 1985 Alan Competizione cyclocross bike.

Last January I got myself a Cannondale CAADX gravelbike and although a very nice bike to ride, I missed the lightness and responsivity of the CX bikes I used to ride back in the nineties. Disc brakes on a CX are fantastic but the CAADX felt more like riding an army tank than a crossbike. So when I recently got this nice ano red 1985 Alan Competizione offered, I couldn't resist. I wanted to ride this bike so I choose to go modern on it. Still had a 10 speed Force groupset and some other spares and this is what came out.

Some very special machines once again this month :)
I am really liking the Alan myself, maybe because we're getting into cross season once again.

beautiful. I have a similar wallhanger (including team jersey) from the nineties' Ceramiche Ariostea team. So you have my vote. ;-)
