    Ummm...How did I wind up with a girl's bike?

    Man, I rip on dudes with pink bikes and crap all the time. Well, turnabout is fair play.

    I kinda dig it, though.

    sweet. I was just reading/replying to that thread. I think what makes it girly isn't the pink rims themselves but the play between the pastel-ish celeste and the pink.
    Was that the fork from the first frame?

    ... It looked so much better in black...

    Eh well, anyone who rides a bike like that down the street is okay in my books.

    So many people wouldnt even touch that thing... I think its kinda happy.. rather easter-ish...

    mine's WAY more girlie than yours. i could my little pony the hell out of yours. don't feel too sissyish. sleep confidently in yr masculinity knowing that there's a bike in NYC that looks like shera, hello kitty, strawberry shortcake and my little pony got together for some hot saphocyclist kink and their collective tantric plasti-power spawned something that begs every child under the age of 15 to ask me or their parents, "why?"

    I envisioned an all black bike (frame, wheels, bars, etc...) at the start of the project cuz...well...no one has ever done that before.

    I bought the frame/fork and went on the hunt for some wheels and a crankset. Well, the dude with the Dura Ace crankset gave me a sweet deal on the wheels, too if I got the the cranks + wheels and other stuff.

    So, the pink on black didn't look half bad:



    But, the BB shell was stripped. Bianchi didn't have any black frames left from 2003-2004, so they sent a green one and here I am.

    I went from the Black Knight to the Easter Bunny in 6 weeks.

    Sucks they didn't have any 2003s left, but the celeste isn't too shabby at all.
    Very nice, in fact.

    Honestly. I think that bike is pretty hot.Even for a dude

    But i think it would be way nicer with all black wheels and a black crankset.

    i actually like the celeste over the black frame with the pink... when the frame was black, the pink was the only color on it, so all the attention is there, with the celeste, it balances the pink much better.

    That bike would look perfect in Miami circa 1985 w/ some matching pastel clothing like these dudes got.
