I've bought this bike two days ago. The frame is really rigid and light, and it has a Shimano Dura Ace EX groupset mounted, but the crankset got replaced in the past by a Shimano Sora. At the rear wheel there are Shimano dropouts, and the fork has Campagnolo dropouts. The tubes are Reynoulds.

The bike is really nice to ride. But I've never heard of the brand "Lanciano". Did anyone of you ever heard of it? I would love to have some more information about the brand/frame.

Thx for the replies!!

Ok, thanks for your info! The bike also has alot of decals from the store on it.

At this moment I'm very busy with cleaning the bike. I will post some detailled pictures as soon as I have finished it.

professional = English
professionnel = French


Lanciano is a city in central Italy, so French bike with Italian sounding branding?

Looks like one of those small Italian Boutique shop type frames.

Is the bottom bracket thread Italian?

Looks nice anyway...enjoy.
