Had to go with new brak caliper's because of the wheel change..
the original rims were 700x23 but the newer wheels wouldn't fit. Had to replace the calipers
Why wouldn't the new wheels fit? Was it the diameter or because of the wider axle spacing?

that is a great color.

It was the calipers not the wheels

Installed the original rear wheel with the ultegra 6500 , tried out a 105 1055 rear caliper and found that the caliper it came with is long reach. Diacompe 500 Sucks because it would have been a complete ultegra group.

Not my Bianchi, but saw this in FB in a c&v group.


I don't have any info on the bike, but I hope some of you Bianchi experts could shed light on it. Looks like an early gravel bike, 90s maybe. Pretty cool.

That's the MG-GB Maglificio team issue bicycle developed for Johan Museeuw for the 1994 Paris-Roubaix. Museeuw, a race favourite, was in 2nd place, with 30 km to go and within 30 seconds of the leader, when his suspension failed. The gap grew and when he tried to change bicycles, he had problems getting his shoe to release from the pedal. This seemed to take the steam out of him and he was quickly caught by a that duo included his team mate, Fabio Baldato, who would go on to finish 2nd on a standard frame equipped with Rock Shox. Museeuw would continue to fade and finish 13th.
