hi boys,
after a long time that I have not written here, I am updating you on my last vintage mtb that I bought, a Bianchi NTH titanium megatube from 1997 I suppose. It was a dream for me in the 90s, in Italy Dario Acquaroli raced with a similar bike
3 / 2.5 titanium tubes, the oblique two plates folded and welded along their entire length to make everything more rigid

Very cool. That big down tube reminds me of the giant oblong (in cross section) tubes on my magnesium Litech.

thank you all
I had been looking for one for many years and in the end I found it.
Another dream come true.
I also tried to mount it myself with ritchey tires, but red. I find they look just as good.

That looks gorgeous! Still love mine, just need to find another! Missed out on another NTH model like yours but in gloss black.

Still one of the best riding bikes, super stiff vertically and obviously the front triangle is firm. But the rear triangle is so compliant both vertically and horizontally, always makes for a fun ride.
