Show Us Your Bikes Starting With B

So following on from the monthly colour threads, here's your chance to show us your bikes alphabetically!

It goes like this: every fortnight I'll start a new thread with a new letter in alphabetical order. Post your bikes that correspond to that letter, eg; C = Cinelli, Carlton, Ciocc. M = Mercian, Masi, Motobecane. And so on and so forth. The letter of the fortnight should correspond with the marque, not the model. For example; you could post your Tommasini Prestige in the T thread, but not in the P thread. If you're not sure, take a look at the word on your downtube. There's a grey area with people's names - Bruce Gordon, Claud Butler, etc., but I'll leave it up to the owners which thread is preferred. Make sense?

So let's see your Bassos, BSA's and Broncos...hang on.

Um, let me think.



A black Bianchi Brava, against a black sky. That's three B's at least.

Here is my wife and my Burley Zydeco. I think it's a 2002 model.



This is the Bianchi Volpe I used to have.

First up is my 1988 Basso Gap. This was repainted before I got it and then built up with a Shimano 600 groupset. Rides like a dream.



Next are a couple I've moved on now.

First is this 1981 Bob Jackson:



Then the Bianchi Campione that I just never connected with. Co-worker has it now and loves it.




Finally this 1987 Bridgestone Mile 112. I really liked this but the bike cave was busting at the seams so I moved it on too.

Hope this counts... Burley tandem Duet



Older picture, but new modifications include fenders and bar end shifters. Rides like a dream and turns a lot of heads Rode it a lot with the ex gf, but since we've split,I kept the bike in storage. Hopefully I can find a purpose for it again.
