Milan Italy bicycle shops

Postby Strawburger » Wed Oct 24, 2012 8:18 pm

Hi all,

I will find myself in Milan for one day only (limited time). I've been doing research on bike shops. Very few have websites, and the majority end up being commuter shops. Searching on this forum and google doesn't provide much. Can anyone recommend a road bike shop or two that I can look at clothing and race bikes?

Cheers,

SB

Here is another idea.
Colnago Bicycle museum and factory, which is apparently not far from Milan
Cambiago, "just outside of Milan"
Probably other famous bike names in that part of Italy, look up Zullo, DeRosa, etc etc etc.
Sounds like a good trip, take care etc.

Cheers TLL, I'll let my fingers do the walking, thanks for the link!

Elantra, as much as I would love to do that, my constant suggestions on the value of hiring a car in Milan, slipping into conversations how good the rail system is and how cheap cab rides can be to the outskirts of the city, it is all met with a no. Not even hours of designer shopping afterward can sway the answer :lol:

I have, however, negotiated a few kg of luggage space for clothing and perhaps some shiny metallic or carbon bits :)
