Cool tyres, and howabout a third of a Bianchi thread is dedicated to mountain bikes. Bet Munga never saw that coming. :o

I was channel surfing a couple of nights ago and stopped to watch a bit of the film There's Something About Mary. There is a scene where Ted and Mary's brother enter a costume store. Outside the store, leaning against a post, is what looked like a vintage celeste Bianchi. If anyone has the DVD could they have a look sometime to confirm? I think the scene is towards the end of the movie just after Mary's brother gets hit in the eye with a baseball. Accolades to the prop buyer if it is a Bianchi.

Edit: Sorry, didn't realise this was in the retro biking forum.

I like the fact that all of the kids' toys have been pushed out of the way so Dad can get his toy set up in the lounge.

this slow-burner is creeping along a piece at a time.

the real issue is with the bars. i have some 64-40's which are ideal, but very scratched up, and a little bit bent on the drive side..
can anyone tell me if i might be able to source some 63-40's or 64-40's, 26.4mm, with double grooves?

Like those Celeste Bianchis (and Hanibal's Grey bike. 1988 model, isn't it? :D) I'll keep up the roady average with my budget built '91.

Don't you just love it when you build a bike, take it out for a long ride and it just fits you like a glove?

Nice commuter.

I had a similar mountain bike and i remember the frame said carbon steel.
Is that like a sales gimmick?
