The L’Eroica was cre­ated to be ‘le­gal’ to ride at the Tus­can vin­tage ride of the same name, the rules of which pro­hibit clip-in ped­als and STI shifters, among other things. It can be rid­den more briskly than you’d think. The vin­tage quirks of nar­row bars, down­tube shifters and soft brakes all be­come part of the ex­pe­ri­ence. The beau­ti­ful frame is hand­built in Italy, faith­ful to the orig­i­nal, and has a won­der­ful flu­id­ity.
