This frame used to be a horrible pink/white combo and I painted it celeste [as God intended Bianchi's to be:)] 2-component epoxy. I named her after the cute young lady on the ABC soap "All My Children", my wife's favorite show.

Hot Damn...

that's nice. I have a similar '89 Bianchi Tangent Cyclocross, lugged Superset II/Tange Prestige. I just switched the archaic Suntour shifers and freehub to 9-speed Dura Ace bar-ends plus Open Pros to Ultegras. Mine still has a seizure-inducing white-silver-chartreuse triple fade; I like seeing what a good paintjob will do. I'd love mine to look as classy as yours.

Did your Bianchi come with a triple crank, or double?

lovely bike! this would look

lovely bike! this would look great with fenders/mudguards (IM0)


You gotta love those old-school cross bikes. Single ring up front... Remember having a 42 tooth samdwhich? We used to turn the teeth off of a couple of old 52's and sandwhich our chainrings to kep from losing the chain. Good log hoppers too...
