Hi Jim

As promised, a pic of my Bianchi 'cross bike. Originally built up in '98 for my move to Europe, it was to be my "one" bike, good for everything. It's gone through light touring and commuting phases, and > now is set up exclusively for off-roading.

The frame is pretty nice:

designed by Robert Kurosawa, lugged Dedacciai Zero Uno tubing, and Reparto Corse built. Unfortunately a rear brake boss broke off and had to be re-welded.

Part highlights include a King headset, Campagnolo Record OR Grafton-copy brakes, Ritchey cranks, Suntour XC Pro and Mountech derailleurs, Salsa stem, and Nitto Dirt Drop bars. I'm really satisfied with the gearing: an XTR 8 speed cassette 12-28 matched with 34-48 rings.
