This exemplar is kind of a late bloomer as far as X4-models are concerned. The frame might be an older one but the original paintwork in its pearly celeste is the typical 1990s style.
Otherwise this X4 is pretty typical:
The frame is made of superb Columbus SLX tubes and shows an iconic blade-shaped fork and rear triangle, the Columbus Air stays.
Besides that, the main features of this Bianchi Specialissima X4 are:
- - the typical fork crown and bottom bracket
- - the rounded style top eye joints
- - the Silva brake bridge with the pantographed writing "Bianchi" on the right side
- - the internally routed rear derailleur and brake cables
- - the engraved head tube
On the technical side, this Bianchi Specialissima is equipped with one of Campagnolo's finest groupsets, including the iconic Delta brakes.
With its non-indexed friction shifters, this X4 is even compliant to the L'Eroica rules. Completely checked and ready to go!
