Very cool.

I still think they are stunning.

The former owner tells me the bike has some connection to John Tomac. I am trying to find out more information about its history.

Yes the Campy brakes and levers are a bit odd but like hydorah said the rest of the components are quite nice. It is all part of the history of mountain bikes isn't it? The stuff that made it and stuff that didn't.

This maybe I should enter it in this month's BOTM as an example of the dead end for Campy MTB components. :)

Very wow indeed :shock: 8) and defo the coolest bike I have seen in long time.

Double U brakes are super cool(I am slightly biased as is Makster) they make it very unique as this was a small window of MTB history

Graphics are just brilliant and the Turbone is my favorote one :lol: what is a turbone ?

I love the campag kit and is the rear triangle Bianchi Celeste ???
