You have made a real quality job of the renovation.

Well done. Looks fantastic. Nice component specification as well.

What does it ride like?

First of all thanks for the compliments for the bike .. :mrgreen:

I took it from the wall and rode it at a German Bianchi Cycles Meet in a 70 km tour around Bielefeld and last weekend a similar route which was mostly on the flat. It is sufficiently stable like a steely one. Even with the short climb or faster acceleration in a sprint. The same applies to short and fast descends - there's no vibrations in the frame or in the bar

... even with the 32-hole FIR Pulsar wheels (...I haven't seen FIR Pulsar rims with 36h still yet - are there any!?) The Bianchi is very smooth and comfortable on the road with a very good directional stability and the old classic 8-speed Shimano DURA ACE groupset is today a pleasure not only visually, but also technically

...and finally here a quick snap shot from the bike as a wallhanger with the corresponded jersey

Hi Thomas,

Found this while going through my old magazines, no chrome on the rear triangle and probably taken on a descent in the tour de france in 1992.

Regards,

Pat
