When we introduced the Milano in the previous century (OK, it was the late 1990s), the bike was ahead of its time. Now its time has come. Although the Milano?s swoopy aluminum frame and low-maintenance derailleur-free shifting are as distinctive as ever, what the bike represents?the idea that functional design can make a bold impression?is particularly resonant in the era of 3-buck gasoline. So while the fashionistas are swooning over the ?café racer? aesthetic of your personal mobility, you?ll quietly be grooving to the Milano?s down-to-earth convenience, including fenders and a chainguard for cleanliness, a kickstand for easy parking, and a comfortable saddle with a built-in flashing light for the dark. Both frames available in either color.
