So as usual like most of us, I keep my eyes open for some sweet bikes, whether it's out on the bike paths, or on the local craigslists, or searching garage sales.
This weekend i ended up buying 3 bikes, but i'm just gonna show you this one.
It's a bianchi celeste.
- It has some campagnolo all over it, not sure which type of campagnolo, hopefully someone can specify for me (The downtube shifters, derailleurs, hubs and rims), the rear hub looks awesome with the shape that it has, i've seen it a couple times on the forum before
- Cinelli stem
- Gipemme Crank i believe? if not can someone tell me what it is, the crank cap says gipemme, couldn't find any campy badges on it, it says "Dual Spline" on the arm
- 3ttt seat post
- really nice Modolo levers and modolo professional brakes
- a rudelli headset, i don't know much about these maybe someone can give me more info
- bianchi pentograph
The paint on the bike is good, not amazing though, there's some paint chips, very few, and one small little rust spot on the seat post lug. I've always wanted a celeste for myself but unfortunately i don't think this will fit me, the parts on the bike seem to be pretty awesome, my favorite being the black modolo levers and brakes.
Anyways just wondering if you guys had anymore info on the bike, hopefully bianchigirl reads this and can give me some info, i couldn't find any model names on it, so i'm not sure where this bike ranks in the mid to high end range, just by looking at it, i'm guessing high end. also what year is it? and what type of crank arm is it? Also it's colubus tubing, but what grade of colubus is it?
here's the pics:
