Being shop geek extraordinare with a soft spot for Celeste bikes from Italy I jumped at the chance to bring a sweet rig new rig into the stable today. It is a Project 7 Bianchi that is a MTB style frame with 700C Cross wheels from the mid-90's.

The frame is lugged Tange Prestige Ultimate tubing and has 2-3 small scrapes but otherwise is perfect. Reliable index OR friction 24 Speed via Suntour thumbshifters!!!

Since I have some light singletrack/doubletrack between home and work it is the perfect commuter. A cross would be cool but I can't really justify one $$-wise so the Project 7 is my proud new steed.

Ps Pedals will be swapped tonight for time atac and a new 700X32 Green Michelin Cross tires added
