Bianchi says it's blue. Looks green to me but it's their color so I guess they know.

Blue is my favourite colour so I've got more blue bikes than any other colour.

Here's a MIELE UNO SL I painted metallic blue and put an 8-speed SORA drivetrain on.

Frame after painting and decals applied.



Bicycle built up.

This bike is blue, it looks black but when the sun shines on it you can see the blue. Fun to ride but I haven't ridden it very far.

A 1979 Schwinn Suburban 5-speed. Got it for $20 a few months ago and it cleaned up real nice. Was going to sell it but then my 10-year-old commandeered it for his school commute and it's now officially his. He abandoned his Jeep-branded mountain bike for it no less...

I have this weird fondness for old step-thru/women's cruiser bikes. I think they look better than their men's counterparts and since these bikes are built for relaxed cruising, they should be as easy to get on and get off as possible.

Thanks.

I'm contemplating apes, my knees hit the grips on turns with these bars. Not sure of the handling with higher bars.

In sand it might get a little sporty.

Soulcraft Groundskeeper. I built the wheels in the 00ís when color was in style. They match the frame decals really well. The blue has a little sparkle in it and really brightens up when the sun is out.
