TL;DR I needed an ugly bike to run around the city with, this came up for cheap, turned out to be one of best bikes I've had in a long time.

It weighs approx. 12.3 kilos, which is fair. Has 42-13 gearing right now, will go higher up the back, cuz my knees don't cultivate this ratio too much. It's a surprisingly quick, and ridiculously fun bike. Needs some tweaking, wheels have to be dished correctly, and since I've trimmed the rear brake's cable properly.

Also, if anyone happens to know the manufacturing year, I'd much appreciate that information! It came with a full 3x7 Suntour XCD groupset, has a 26.0 seatpost and a 1" steerer.

It’s a 1990-91.

The Migale was the second model from the top for the Bianchi Ragno Line.

Very clean bike.

And yes the do ride nicely.

I wouldn’t call it ugly, the opposite rather. It is a Cunningham design.

Thanks a lot, much appreciated! Ugly in a way in my book, but also super rad in another way...

That is super funky! :D. Looks great as a single speed city bike.
A lot of metal there, but it's Columbus, so that's ok
