^^thanks.^^ Took a lot of patience, and more than a couple beers to get them right.
Made a few changes to the Bianchi, and this thread can't have too many pictures.
@ due ruote That is a really lovely bike.
Thanks all for the kind words, and yes, I can confirm it's too darn cold, and technically not winter yet.
Wow, that is amazing.Made a few changes to the Bianchi, and this thread can't have too many pictures.
Nice, nice, very nice.
Due Ruote: Congrats on a great bike, and an outstanding picture as well!
very nice mate
+1 Outstanding photo! It's saved in my wallpaper folder.

And that was the first major ride on my drop bar conversion....which is now settled into the trainer in the living room because of my broken hand, and Chicago's current Arctic temps.
Looking forward to my winter commuting adventure.....
Late to the party, but very nice Bianchi. The little splash of red in the frame really helps the bar and seat pop Been on the lookout for a Prestige framed Grizzly for some time...
Back when I did this conversion, I was determined to just leave the bike as it was; no rack, no fenders. Since pretty much every bike I own is pressed into use as a commuter and/or grocery getter, I wanted just one bike simply for fun. Yeah, that worked out really well. My current winter commuter:
I built up new wheels with Alex rims and SA drum brakes hubs, the dyno up front powering a B&M light set.
Thanks very much!
I saved an old one and cut the top to make a sleeping support. Reminds me to be careful when I get up to pee, middle of the night. Anyway the left leg finally feels like it's steady healing, getting better and better. Between this support and fixing a vitamin A deficiency, there's hope!
My 1989-90ish Rocky Mountain Stratos, courtesy of our very own Sixty Fiver (thank you sir!). I'm working on making this my primary commuter bike and I'm not at all done, but it's so light and responsive (and surprisingly smooth) like this that I almost hate to add my lights, rack, and heavy bag.
And no, I'm not leaving the steerer tube like that.
