Milan GT


The Milan GT has been sold and is living in Connecticut.


I’ve recently purchased this very low milage Canadian Milan GT from the original owner in Chicago. It came with a Bionx electrical assist system and heavy Marathon Plus tires. I tried it out configured like this once, then removed the Bionx and installed some light  Schwalbe One tires. This brought the weight down from 83 to a more reasonable 60 lbs.

Other improvements that I’ve done include:

  • upgrading the front drum brakes from 70mm to 90mm.
  • converting the 9 speed 11-32 cluster and shifter to a 10 speed 11-36.
  • swapping the inner chainring from a 38 to a 34.
  • replacing the stock threaded rod tie rods with proper left/right threaded tubular tie rods.

Here’s a picture of the Milan GT arriving in Santa Barbara for the first time. I had the seller ship it to my friend’s warehouse in Oxnard and trailered it home from there.IMG_3121

Ready to travel


I have to admit that I’m not thrilled with the dark red color of the Milan. After a lot of practice and failures, I managed to complete a vinyl wrap of the Milan using Avery vinyl.

Here’s a video walk around of the Milan GT that I made for the buyer.
