A IS FOR ALAN

Cycling Weekly - - FEATURE -

Ex­ot­i­cally named Ital­ian brand ALAN (de­rived from first two let­ters of founder Lodovico Fal­coni’s chil­dren, Al­berto and Annamaria — mer­ci­fully that way round) were the daddy of all cy­clo-cross frames from the 70s through to 90s. The com­pany burst onto the scene in 1972 with its rev­o­lu­tion­ary lugged alu­minium frames. Light­weight and min­i­mal­ist, ALAN frames have been rid­den to no fewer than 20 cross world ti­tles.
