BIANCHI XL EV2 Team Mercatone Uno 1999 Reparto Corse, Marco Pantani - Campagnolo Record Titanium 10s
Reparto Corse means the Race Department. The hand built frames for their top riders and of course Marco Pantani was one of them riding for Mercatone Uno sponsored by Bianchi. Their top model XL EV2 Reparto Corse was made of lightweight triple-butted alloy shaped tubeset. Bianchi XL EV2 met Pantani's specifications with slightly sloping geometry, and a relatively short head tube to suit his aggressive climbing style. Though not super-stiff as compared to today's carbon fiber machines, Pantani's bike was light, even by modern standards.
Happy to present a legendary late 1990s Bianchi's racing machine, the BIANCHI XL EV2 Reparto Corse Mercatone Uno which dates back to 1999. The whole bike looks amazing, from original Mercatone Uno paintjob, beautiful combination of polished /carbon Campagnolo Record groupset, Pantani's personalized Selle Italia Flite saddle. Great chance for all Pantani fans to get this extraordinary piece. --
