Joe Bell Custom Paint Job

My first project bike. Bike was a six year old Bianchi (one of the last to be made in Italy (Cro Mo). I really wanted to put a bike together that was totally and completely mine. I chose Joe Bell out of California to paint the bike. He is expensive and you have to wait, but my research showed that he would do a fantastic job. You see the results. Definitelyl worth the wait. All campy components. Pedals were back ordered so I stuck some old Ultegra Pedals so I could go for a test ride. Miche Supertype (Italian)seatpost with a Brooks Swallow. There is a guy on BF that has a smiliar setup and I thought it looked great (Thanks to The Fixer). I should have put Campy wheels on the bike, but I got a great deal on these from my LBS and they are a solid wheelset. KSword CF stem and handlebars finished off with Nokon cables. All in all a fun project and she rides like a dream.

Great Bike

I have one myself and love it, but i made the mistake of over-tightening the binder bolt on the seat post and popped off the braze-on. took me a while to get it back up, but after calling several frame builders, i finally decided to take care of it myself. don't make the same mistake.

Very pretty

That's really a great looking bike. It has a very cool and balanced look.

thanks! I love the way bike
