We go through lots of bikes at Hugga HQ and I’m reaching a point where I want to keep a select few in a collection. Missing the ride of a bike, I fear I won’t find another that rides as good as it did. You can get steel in custom and I own my share of handbuilt bikes that I adore. Occasionally though, a production bike will come together in a memorable ride like this Boron Steel Bianchi.
The Bianchi was made back when steel was still a sought-after, high-end feature of a production racing bike. It wasn’t just an urban bike with crap chromoly spec’d for margins and livened up with Velocity rims.
What bikes do you regret selling? Another is the last Trek Madone before they changed it and arguably f’ed it all up.
