Mondiale Page of the 1990 Bianchi Catalog, PLEASE?

I'm looking for this specific page of the 1990 catalog. This one is BARELY too blurry for me to read. I can make out the majority of it, Croce d'Aune parts, but I'd love to be able to read it all. If anyone has a better monitor resolution and can provide a 'translation', heck that's cool too!

Thanks in advance!

My USA 1990 catalog only has the Mondial as a frameset. I have attached a copy of the 1990 Superleggera and the 1989 Mondial pages.

Thank you! Do you have the detailed specifications page by chance? The one that's probably all text?

Surprised that Bianchigirl hasn't chimed in yet.

@jimmm18 Thanks for the catalog posts.

In 1989 and 1990 Bianchi used the same Columbus SLX frame (SPX on larger sized frames) for a number of different models: Giro, Super Leggera, and Mondiale.

The difference was in the components and the model name on the top tube: Giro - Campy Athena, Super Leggera - Campy Chorus and Mondiale - Campy Croce d'Aune.

The Mondiale was available as a bare frame but there was no model name decal.

A bunch of the local CR members were Bianchi fans. I was suffering from Celeste envy so in 2007 I picked up a 1987 or 88 Bianchi Giro. It had about 50-100 miles on it and came with a Campy Victory gruppo. The frame was made of Bianchi Columbus Formula 2 tubing which may have been a mix of SL and SP.

Anyway, the bike fit me perfect and the handling was great but it was heavy and rode like a tank.



Jump ahead 4 years, I found an NOS 1990 Bianchi Mondiale bare frame that had been sitting in a box at a LBS for 20 years.



I took it to a locale frame builder friend to check the alignments. It's the same size and has the same geometry as my Giro.

I was thinking that SLX tubing was lighter than SL and that would make it a much smoother riding bike than the Giro.

My friend pointed out that SLX seat and down tubes plus the chain stays were ribbed and it was going to be a stiff ringing bike. He was right!!!

It's considerably lighter than the Giro and has the same great fit and handling but I wouldn't want to put in more than about 30 miles on it. The bike climbs great and I built it with a mishmash of Campy components including a Competition triple.

Even though the workmanship is not as nice as the Giro it's one of my favorite bikes (for shorter rides).

I am surprised bianchigirl answers as many as she does.

You are all welcome. I had vertigo yesterday (never had it before!) and had to cancel out of my rides so was riding the forum which I don't do on a regular basis.

Interesting you take on riding the Bianchi Giro. My experience of steel Bianchi's, though I have only ridden a few, is they are stiff and ride almost to the point of being dead but not quite. Even my light weight Boron XL frame had a bit of that. Not a bad ride, just distinctive. Boron XL cracked like they all see to do. :-(

I just got another Bianchi, but not vintage and a Bianchi in name only. See Pic.

I've ridden the Giro and the Mondiale and can attest to the giro being a tank, although it is a pretty bike. I like the Giro for longer rides,but I'm always partial to the Monidale with SLX tubbing. I ride mostly river beds and boardwalks so maybe the stiffness doesn't affect me as much. Its also very responsive and quick.

A LBS is an old Bianchi dealer... They have lots of classic Bianchi stuff.



I also got this one too.



I haven't had the Giro out for over a year.

Between the 1990 Mondiale and my 1981 Campione Del Mondo, the Giro "sits on the bench" a lot...



Those 2 Bianchis are on my top ten favorite list...

Do you think there is any chance they have any more celeste bags? If so, would you be willing to put me in touch with them??

I like the '81- reminds me of my '82 Nuova Racing! A great bicycle. Even if it isn't top-of-the-line.

It was a small shop in Santa Clara. I'll have to dig up the name. I bought the last 2 Bianchi bags that they had.
