beauty!

Love the horizontal drop outs and tubeless...

Only thing I'd change is the tape color (a few times) to get it right. maybe yellow or orange, brown.

Hey, the Tressostar cloth bar tape matches the original blue that Bianchi used. and don't forget my Silca Impero pump.

the tires are orange now and i have a bunch more but the next ones will probably be black. i have a stash of those, and even a few green ones. Ya gotta collect tubular's when you can get a deal now daze.



and I built it to ride not display.

anyone wanna put an over/under on how many miles before I tip my big fat ass over
reading back through this thread

turns out the answer was about 150 miles

I came in from a ride on a hot day and rode through my front yard and hit the brakes in front of the garage

fell into my wife's car hard enough to dent the hood with my shoulder

that sucked a little

Yeah, i had a 1984 Bianchi in Celeste green, came with the blue tape too. Just never thought it worked aesthetically.

I have no problem having something to ride and display (I have no choice as my bikes are in my living room..).

I think we are showing a little bit of age here with this old old old old seat!



But it is kinda cool to see something this old still moving along on the street!

I am old. and I can still move along on the street.

the saddle is from the 70's a Brooks Professional. A new Brooks that hasn't been soaking in Proofide and broken in is like sitting on a brick. Vintage saddles are way cool and I try and buy them at the flea market when I can. A Brooks it will last forever if taken care of.



This Ideale sold for $1699 on eBay not too long ago.





This is old.

Sucks big time to "bonk" that hard....Running out of carbohydrate storage is the debil

After one 200 mile ride (Lotoja, Logan Utah to Jackson Hole WY), I couldn't move out of the car.....It took 40 miniutes and 3 chocolate shakes before I could crawl to the room

My first bike with spd pedals, two weeks into ownership, never re-checked cleat tightness, tried to unclip at the busiest stoplight in town, shoes rotated, cleats didn't, classic laugh-in style tip over. Worst part was being stuck to bike while laying on the ground...

That's tough, and No riding buddies to laugh thier asses off at you.
I did something even dumber Pull up to stop light pulled left foot out and leaned right, I always pull my right foot out ALWAYS (except for that time of course.) 3 riding buddys behind me. Damn near falling off thier bikes laughing so hard.

Dude... the biggest one is maybe what- 300'? You should be able to kill that.

You don't follow that stupid "spin up hills" bullshit do you?

The cool thing about being a big dude who spends any amount of time doing powerlifting type stuff is you can really torque up the small hills like that. Big gear, big fuckin' wide handlebars and just stomp on it until the lactic acid kills you.

Works great for 90% of the hills I encounter in midwest mountain bike races. It's the *only* place I can pass people- and I usually have at least 50 lbs on most of them. Occasionally you hit that long grinder once in a while though and blow up in a most spectacular fashion- cresting the top in granny gear, crying like a little girl, but most of the time it works.
