A specific Bianchi picture...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

A specific Bianchi picture...

Hey, folks.

I'm looking for a picture that was posted in one of these forums a while ago, and I can't find it. It features a late 80's red Bianchi leaning up against a shed in a grass field with some trees in the background.

Can anyone help me out here?

If that pic was a little bigger (like maybe 1280x1024) it'd make an ideal desktop wallpaper.

That used to be my desktop wallpaper. It's Lamplight's Bianchi, I've complimented him on the picture a bunch of times before. Somehow I knew before even clicking on this thread that it was gonna be about that picture. Mmmm.

(Here's a Nikishi of his: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2..._8840small.jpg)

Wow,based on the time between the 1st and 2nd posts, that's better service than somefast food places based on how random a question that was. Just proves that we spend too much time here (me too). Oh, and it would really be a good wallpaper at 1600x1200 or 1920x1200 on the other screen but that's why you put a colored box around it.
