My new Bianchi. I bought the frame in December and waited months for my SRAM Red group to arrive. Sorry, not the greatest shot: I snapped it just before heading out on my first ride. Steerer needs to be cut, the tape job was quick and dirty, the garage door is brown, and the chain is on the small ring.





It's the only celeste 928 T-Cube I've seen around, so if you see this bike, it should be me. Wave hi!

No, no! This one is new. You're thinking of another one. Third from the right:



Please try to keep up.

Here's a bike I just finished building this Sunday, for a friend. A top-tier NOS Chesini frame set fished off of eBay and built up with new Campy Centaur 10 speed. I took it for a 30 mile shake-down yesterday, and is a real sweet ride.

Lock the pedals to the saddle, and I'm set.

Nice. I didn't realize Ksyriums came in Campagnolo versions.

You know, you should really think about subscribing to the 2009 Centaur Of The Month club...

Damn good eye, sir. It is indeed a first-gen Jubilee. Pretty far from NOS, though:

Thanks. I actually found it on a discarded frame a few years ago. I had no idea what it was (aside from "a derailleur" and "old") until recently. The frame also had some crazy-light handlebars on it. Must've belonged to an old-school weight weenie at some point. Too bad the rest was stripped off. I bet it was fun.

Haha, somewhere in my pile is a Multito. If I can find it, I'll bring it to one of the rides and you can add it to your collection.

I like the cyclo-cross'ish fat tires. Looks like a comfy ride.

Upside of 700c wheels on a 27" frame is that there's a bunch of clearance left over. But really, it was a "what's laying around" build, and those were the tires I had laying around. Happy coincidence that they not only fit, but somehow fit the look.

I've only ridden a few miles on it, but so far, it does seem very comfortable. The saddle is beyond broken in, and I may end up being a narrow handlebar convert.

Gorgeous build as per usual John

too bad the seat stay chroming stops just north of the rims, it would have been delicious to have that line up...was the frame built for 27" ?

Nope - this is a mid 90's frame that was straight off the boat from Italy, and spec'ed for 700c AFAIK.
