has been one of the most successful makers of Aluminum bicycles, virtually
dominating the cyclocross top ranks for 20 years and providing pro rides on the road as
well. Using the Alan name, they also supplied frames for other
labels including Guerciotti, Fabo, Colnago & others.
Alan has a reputation for structural integrity,
due to their unique system of threading the tube and lug joints, making both a mechanical
and bonded connection... "Glued and Screwed!"

The Alan Super Record Frame set
The Super Record
represents the latest development of the Alan aluminum alloy frame from
Italy. This frame utilizes a unique patented construction system of
threaded tubing and lugs joined with epoxy adhesive. Thus it is not
brazed or welded. The Super Record includes the following refinements:
1. The use of increased tubing wall
thickness (2 mm) gives this frame a much stiffer ride and more efficient transmission of
power than the standard Alan Competition model.
2. The redesigned fork with larger,
beefier blades, new crown and ergal stabilizer adds to front end stiffness and makes the
handling extremely positive.
3. The improved seat cluster has an
integral stay connector for extra strength and appearance.
4. The frame is detailed with
bottle cage fittings, shift level bosses, bottom bracket cable guides and dynamic cutouts
in the lugs and fork crown.
