Oh yes. The Colnago Olympic Master is tied for first with my celeste Bianchi. The Miyata 300x carbon comes in a close second.

Oh, yeah, I'd love a Celeste Bianchi as well. Actually, it should be against the law to paint a Bianchi any color but Celeste.

What about when Bianchi painted it a different color?

And some people would argue that Celeste isn't blue at all.

Mr. Beanz,
What happened to the down tube and bottom bracket in the last picture? That looks grim and is a "total" for that frame I'd venture.

See old thread at:

http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ke!?highlight=


The Landshark I finally got after coveting one for 20 years... it's pretty much blue... as are all my bikes in same way or form. My mountain bike is dark indigo blue. The Zurich is silver and blue. The Spec hardtail is silver with blue headset, bottom bracket etc.

I like blue!

The whole color scheme is suppose to be green grass, wild roses and blue skies. What you can't see if the silverly puffy clouds on the top tube. The green part was added by the builder and it turns out to be my favorite part!

I agree, actually. Celeste seems green to me. It was just mentioned in passing by the poster. And it should STILL be against the law for Bianchi to paint their bikes another color.
