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

Here is it's older brother...

This is a 2006 model of the Via Nirone 7, your's older brother. This one has carbon rear stays, and an ultegra/105 mix.

Why does Bianchi only use that color? They look like sweet bikes, but bikes are meant to be red!

Its part of their corporate image. Whenever I (and most cyclying fans I would imagine) see that turquoise blue / green colour on a frame, it instantly clicks: thats a Bianchi.

I love the colour. When I see it, it appears feminine and slightly over powering but thats part of its allure for me. Its borderline between bold and proud, subtle and mystique.

Is it more blue than green or green that blue though?

Riding a red Bianchi is like driving a blue Ferrari. And doing either is like showing up for your own wedding in a leisure suit.

I ride a 928. I'll have to get some pics.

Well, at least my my decals are red But I have a Volpe, and the color is (ack, ack) "Gang Green"- Bianchi's name for it. It's actually more like a green-khaki. (pics to come when I get my dig cam set up, but in the meantime, click here to see it.

Wife's 52cm SL w/centaur. Has since been upgraded with a slightly longer stem (110 vs. 100). I also built her a set of custom Niobium 30s laced to Ritchey WCS hubs vs. the FSAs. Probably should update the pic...

A Bianchi should have some green on it somewhere. Mine just has it on the Reparto Course logos. The little guy also likes the new red tires.

1983 Bianchi Alloro. Well ridden. No celeste. I was going to go all celeste accents, but decided I wanted something a little more normal... and things I could find cheap and on clearance. Maybe next time I'll add some tradition.

If you only like Celeste you better close your eyes right now. Here is my Red Campione(with the water bottle that no one likes). It is going in this week for a complete makeover, so I'll post some before and after pics. Hint....(zondas, but that's not all).

Right then....
I've got a pair of 2001 XL-EV2s both with full Record & Neutrons, one in Mercatone Uno colours, one a replica of Pantani's 2000 Tour De France frame (with a 39x29 lowest ratio for pretending I'm good uphill!), a titanium S9 Matta (replica of Backstedt's Paris Roubaix winning frame from 2004) with Record triple, Ksyrium ES wheels, Tune seatpost & stem, Nokon cables and a Brooks swallow saddle - yeah I know it looks a bit strange but it's for those days when I feel like doing a solo hundred mile ride (it's VERY comfortable) and finally a year 2000 Mega Pro L with Ksyriums and Daytona for bad weather and an Auto-Milano for commuting to work (not shown here).
