to fit in with the apparent theme of close-up shots, here's a recent photo of my Hetchins...




but I also wanted to share a page from the CONI manual. I was paging through it yesterday, and this page of unsuccessful designs caught my attention. Amusing, but I imagine that there are enough ideas that didn't succeed to fill a thread all by themselves.



The bike with the father and kids strikes me as the best of the poor ideas on the page. It does make a person appreciate how well executed modern cargo bikes and bakfeits are.

Not sure how to play but this is one of my favorite pics of the newest build.
PXL_20221119_151857197~2 on Flickr

for years I have essentially ignored Bianchi's. I could never decide if I liked Celeste or not. As I spent more time on BF C&V, I became attracted to them. Overwhelmed with the models and differences from year to year, it was difficult to decide which one to get. As I watched, prices escalated, then this one showed up from the great north. Nearly every bike I have has "heavy" Patina. A characteristic heavily influencing price. I bit. With an integrated HS and Celeste, it is definitely C&V to me. Not much info on this era of this bike on the web Nearly every part on this bike is C&V, just not cable housing or binder bolt

The other truly C&V bikes that are ridable with period correct (+- 5years) are the Colnago, and Bottecchia. The Colnago is the first, chronologically after the lose of the Le Champion.

Not sure on the actual theme either and sorry about the crappy background but thought this would make a good placeholder HB for this MB-1 for the time being.
