+1 Timo's bike is an example of a bit too much celeste imho...

Could be, but it's faithful to what the Bianchi team bikes looked like in the eighties and nineties :thumbup:

Nice bike but I think the celeste integrated bars deviate from the 80's-90's bikes...just that little too much celeste...

I always loved Argentin's 86 worlds bike with the black chrome.

Is that a C-Record rear derallieur?

That Berzin TT bike is proof that you cannot have too much Celeste.

Time for my 3 additions :)

My very first road bicycle, a 1990 Bianchi Rekord 902 [original spec: "Made in Italy" cromoly frame (3 Oria tubes); Suntour GPX drivetrain; Modolo Mach 3 brakes; ITM Bianchi stem, ITM Mondial bar, Selle Italia Bianchi saddle, Ambrosio Elite wheels, Cobra bottle cages] awaiting restoration.

Image

My very second road bicycle, a short-lived 1997 Veloce [original spec: "Made in Italy" cromoly frame, Campagnolo Veloce gruppo & Moscow aero wheels], the most traditional of my Bianchi's.

Image

And separately below, after 10 years of Giant TCR, my brand new spanking 2012 Bianchi Oltre team issue :D

Presenting, my 2012 Bianchi Oltre "Vacansoleil-DCM" team issue rig, the best amongst all my previous ones :up:

Specs: 55cm carbon frame; Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 mechanical drivetrain with FSA K-Force "red/white" striped crank, brakes, bar and stem; temporary? Shimano Dura-Ace CL24 carbon laminate wheels; Michelin Pro3 Race tyres and AirComp Ultralight tubes; San Marco Concor Racing team saddle; Look Keo Blade pedals; Elite Custom bottle cages. Total weight as pictured (incl. Polar S725 computer and sensor plus carbon Topeak Micro Rocket pump on other side of photo and excluding 1.1kg of water): 7kg exactly.

This was a custom build to fully reflect the pro team bike (except for a KMC X10SL gold chain and no FFWD F6R carbon tubulars with DT240s hubs - dream upgrade) as raced in the first half of 2012, since the "retail" team issue bike instead runs Dura-Ace 7900 brakes and "celeste" FSA K-Force cockpit parts... and Elite Sior instead of Custom bottle cages :lol:

Image

Unfortunately, this bike came after a nasty road accident that initially put me on a wheelchair with a broken ankle, and unable to walk for 3 months thanks to a careless driver before New Year's 2011... but good things come to those who wait. So a special thanks to Bianchi Australia, Limar, Selle San Marco for their hand in getting me back on a bike, this awesome bike :) .

The key dream upgrade, as I mentioned above, now remains a sweet set of FFWD F6R wheels to be able to finally really have my "pro tour" Oltre look like the one below! By all accounts... who needs Zipp, Mavic, Fulcrum or Shimano... the FFWD wheels not only look fantastic in celeste but are also a match for the rest in terms of performance also thanks to DARC aero design, 1350g light hand-made construction & quality... if not excellent value for money! http://www.ffwdwheels.com/products/wheels/road-tubular/f6r-celeste/

yes sir, 1st gen c record. i've replaced it with a newer c-record (a gen up) since the Ti positioner snapped. I was lucky to found a replacement in ebay, and therefore i decided to decommission it all together.

Ebay - Netherlands. Should come up a treat when re-finished with new chrome, celeste paintwork and decals.
