Sweet bike...
Let's see from memory.
Color: plain grey - not a flat grey or silver but glossy grey paint with black Bianchi stickers
wheels: Black cxp's w/ black Bianchi hubs
Tires: WTB black with grey stripes
Seat: WTB Black
seatpost,stem and handelbars and tape: black Bianchi
Cranks: Truvative Elita
Pedals: generic SPD's

He had ordered a 51cm but they had no more of the 2002's in that size so they gave him the new 2003 model.

have not seen one yet but the glossy paint has to be a big improvement. I hated that flat black. I bought a 2000 and was going to paint it before I ever rode it. at the last minute before stripping the paint, I shot it with a clear coat. wa-la (French not sure how to spell?) beautiful metamorphosis into gloss black, with the Celeste lettering really standing out. anyway, super fun bike for fixed gear road riding. enjoy it.

you have to get a "real" Pistadesmo

Italian made track frame to get Celeste. I guess they do not want to confuse the two. But I guess even that is the new "pearl" Celeste and not the true groovy stuff.
