Thanks ultyguy,

I thought she needed a bit more Celeste so the chain was perfect.

I loved the Vaconsoleil colour schemes of 2013. Pity belkins isn't as nice.

Would love a set of Celeste FFWD's. Father's Day is coming up!

I have the 600mm FFWD F6R celeste tubular wheels with DT Swiss. I'd suggest going for the 400mm F4R to get the best of both worlds - aero advantage, lightness and no wind buffeting (it's not that bad, mind you). DT Swiss or FFWD hubs makes no real difference. Great value for money wheels and prompt customer support from FFWD direct (side note: the F6R alloy/carbon are quite heavy). Side note 2 - very envious of the Garmin Vector pedals!

That is a lovely Bianchi. A perfect example of how new components can look great on an old frame. Congrats!

My Bianchi X4 Specialissima Reparto Corse (Moreno Argentin)

I'm still a huge steel frame fan.
I like the idea of modern vintage, so I completed it with a Campy Chrous 11sp Groupset.
Frame is a bit on the smaller side for me, the stem is 135mm long.
The rare Cinelli ram 27.2 seatpost was hard to get in 'genuine' version.
The wheelset is a sturdy Campy Record hub built in 32h 3X pattern.

It's obviously not a weight weenie bike at all but weight was far down the list of the build concept.

I have a couple more Steel Bianchi's I would like to share and this was not on my plan to be the first to be posted on here but someone has already done it. So I might as well share this one first.
The other Bianchi's are as rare as this one. If you guys can't wait you can check them out on here:

Hope you guys like it.

It's the most beautiful Bianchi I ever seen. Congratulations!

Heres mine 2004 XL Carbon im new to the site and not exactly a weight weenie at around 17lbs.

the original paint was pretty worn so I stripped it and painted it black with new replacement decals.

I don't plan on going full weight weenie but might upgrade the stock carbon seatpost and forks. Maybe some Jagwire celeste cables. The San Marco saddle has celeste on top.

I have XTR mtn pedals because I can get in and out of them easily and I prefer walking in mtn shoes over road shoes. I know their a little heavier but I like them and I have a matching set on my 29er.

Full Dura Ace and FSA Crankset
