Milani Seigiorni Track Bike

Milani Seigiorni Track Bike

You know when a bike sometimes catches your eye.  Browsing on Wiggle earlier I came across this beautiful track bike - the Milani Seigiorni.  Even more importanly it's got £650 off of it and is on sale at £999 in most sizes. I didn't even look at the spec, as I thought the bike looked so lovely.  I guess that's the Italians for you.

I hadn't heard of Milani before, so dug about and came up with a little on their history. 

"With the origins of the brand dating back as far as the 1920s, former racer Natale Milani fuelled his passion for cycling by making high quality, hand-built racing frames in Gallarate, 35km north of Milan. They soon gained legendary status among Italian frame builders. 

After his death in the 1990s, the company became dormant and various Far Eastern companies offered to buy the name. Natale's son, Celeste, was determined to keep the heart and soul of his father's business alive and relaunched the brand. 

Today, the exclusive bikes bearing his father's name retain many of the same features. They are still built in Gallarate with the meticulous attention to detail and high standards of craftsmanship with which his father founded the business."

If you want to be spinning round the velodrome or the streets of London with some panache, think this would do the trick.  Sorely tempted.
