Another grail attained - Binachi Genius - Campy Record

Just wanted to post my second grail bike (first was a Bottecchia - in another post, from earlier in the week)

Bianchi - Columbus Genius tubing, full Campy Record

I had to change tires, bar tape, stem (NOS Italmanubri ITM Ecylpse), saddle (Selle Italia borrowed from the Bottecchia).
Next mod will be white bartape as the Cinelli cork celeste, does not really match the color of the bike.

I have been wanting a nice Camp celeste - finally got it !

Congratulations! It's a beautiful looking bike.

Take some "beauty shots" with a neutral background- like a wall or garage door.

Very tastefully done. Genius is essentially stainless steel, right?
