Quite special this one. Its a one of a kind build by a more or less famous framebuilder here in Denmark.

The frame is build from Columbus Megatube (Yes its steel and about 2.4 kg for the frame alone) which I've never heard of before. I found a note on columbus' site.

"In 1994, to celebrate 110 years of Bianchi, Columbus strengthened the friendship that born between the fathers of the two companies, making MEGATUBE® solely for the Treviglio company. Megatube has become a must and is now one of the strong points of the Milanese company, with more than 25 different shapes."

I haven't found any Bianchi builds in steel with this tubeset. Seems like it came so late the need for it had gone.

SS at the moment with homemade spacers here and there so its rideble even though I must admit, its a wee bit small.

Please sell me those

Please sell me those handlebars, or the bike. I want to ride this on my first triathlon.

I think this is my favorite time trial bike on here

Megatube was a titanium

Megatube was a titanium tubeset made only for Bianchi. Both the road and the TT tubeset did not look like yours at all. Also, your frame does not have the specific Megatube decal.


It has a Columbus Megatube sticker but not the normal "Columbus style" sticker.

What do you think its made of then?
Did Columbus make other TT specifik tubesets?

Here's the real Columbus

Here's the real Columbus Megatube

As you can see they're nothing like your bike. Especially the headtube worries me, I've never seen Columbus do anything like that. Can you make a close-up pic of that Columbus decal (logo?) near your BB?


Here it is.[email protected]/3869322865

Its Air tubing with custom headtube. Nothing to with columbus.


Here's a couple of snaps. It looks fairly original considering the small production of this tubeset. But who knows. I'll try to contact the frame builder for futher info.

About the "nose", I remember a 90' pinarello with that sort of aero headtube. And they were columbus right?
