thought I would try sending a few photos of my newly re-painted
Atlantis which has also been retro-fitted with S&S couplings. The
paint had become very marked up over the years, and if truth be
told, I have always felt that the colour really belonged on a Bianchi.
After lugging the bike in its box through countless airports, onto
trains, buses, rental cars and taxis (try doing that at 11 PM in
Paris! At least I could bumble along in passable French). I asked
Chris DeKerf (who is best known for his mountain bikes) to do the
work. I think it went rather well.
than the couplings, the build is fairly standard, middle of road
Shimano type bits with Sugino cranks and various Nitto eye candy.
The fenders and bags are Berthoud. This is the bike I use for touring,
commuting, going to the store, riding on fire roads and anything
else I can think of. I hope everyone enjoys it
