Bianchi identification/appraisal

Hello,

I am looking at this celeste/chrome Bianchi frame, initially I thought it's a Colombus Genius but I read those were never lugged so maybe TSX? There's a serial in one of the pictures but couldn't figure out what it means.

I'm not allowed to post URLs yet so I just put it in my bio, hope it's alright. Any info appreciated really.

Good Morning and welcome to the forums. It isn't a CroMor frame? It appears to be, assuming the sticker is original, a CroMor frame from around 1993.

Wow that was fast, thanks for your response and also for adding the pictures here! Yep, that looks about right, I'm going to have to do some reading about CroMor, from what I gather a little bit heavier but a nice frame nonetheless.

@mantistobiggan Yes it's good basic tubing a bit heavier than SL but some people think is rides better becaus of it.

...I like Cromor frames, and have several that I ride regularly. But I am famously plebian in my tastes. The tubing set was cheaper to produce, so they sold for less money new. They generally sell for less used as well. At the time, the model steps were something like Aelle, then Cromor, then SL or SLX, IIRC.
