Alfa Romeo is introducing a stable of touring, trail and competition bicycles in 2011 ranging in prices from $1295 to $11,995.
For the first time in its 100 year history of fine automobiles, Alfa Romeo has designed an extraordinary collection of hand built bicycles. The Stradale Touring (synonymous with the fabulous Grand Prix winning Alfas) to the Cross trail bike and the one of a kind 8C Competizione all carbon fiber road bike, bicycle enthusiasts have little left to wish for.
The bicycles are the brain-child of Veber Ferrari, a cycling enthusiast for decades and close friend of Alfa Romeo top management. Five years ago, Ferrari initiated the idea of building Alfa Romeo bicycles for sport and competition to be sold alongside the Alfa Romeo automobiles currently winning the hearts of all Europeans. His ideas resonated with the executives at Alfa Romeo but they insisted that the bicycles meet the demanding quality and competitive standards displayed by the newest of Alfas, the fabulous 8C Competitizione.
The bicycles had to be designed in collaboration with Centro Stile, the design center of Alfa Romeo. Alfa management insisted that branding each bicycle by painting the name or applying a decal was insufficient. Each bicycle had to be hand built. This meant that only Italian artisans familiar with bicycle performance could be allowed to assemble the bicycles. The frames themselves were to be built by Alfa Romeo under the strictest of quality control reserved for their finest sports cars.
