Have had this for some years now, but this is the first time I'm putting up pics.

Super Grizzly was Bianchi's top of the line mtb, with Deore XT all through. I'm not completely sure if it's a 1987 or a 1988, maybe someone out there can tell me?

The double U-brakes are pretty cool I think, and you get decent braking power with the 4-finger levers :wink: Sorry about the blackwall tyres, but she's a rider, and I also think black tyres go well together with the celeste green and black parts.

I like those old Bianchis, and this one looks well proportioned, Id probably stick some rollercams on there to improve the braking but apart from that it looks fun. Well done.

That is a very nice bike, loving the UU's :wink: I think some amber walls would make it pretty much perfect 8)

Thanks! :)

It has actually had amber walls earlier, but I sort of almost like the black tyres better (on this bike). Maybe I could do a switch tomorrow and try some ritcheys out.
