1999 Bianchi Titanium Xl


Back in '99, in preparation for my NY to CA ride, Michael at Wheelfine did a second build for me: adjustable stem to decrease angle of riding position, LOOK carbon seat post to dull road vibration, Mavic Open Pros with lots of locktight to stay true - I still have those wheels - they could do the same ride over. The Ti XL handled over 3,400 miles of a variety of road surfaces. The triple chain ring was perfection with the nine speed. This would also define the moment I became a die hard Campy fan. To date, no parts have ever died. Never an issue with replacement parts.  Just new decals to make it presentable.
