    Bianchi Martini Racing Ti

    I got this frame last year and I couldn't find that much info about. Is anyone familiar with this frame? One of the decals says World Champion 1996.

    I remember those frames; they looked cool. They were raced by the Bianchi-Martini racing team. Can't remember if they were made in Bianchi's Reparto Corse shop or outsourced.

    Post a pic of your frame!

    Lovely frames although I have never seen a Ti version in the flesh. I had the steel one a few years back which was indeed made by the Reparto Corse department. Strangely the rigid fork was made by scooter builders Piagio.

    Get in touch with Scott Quiring at http://www.quiringcycles.net/. He is now a framebuilder that was a pro member of the team during that time so I am pretty sure he could give you the beta you seek.

    according to the MBA test it was hand built in Bianchis factory with ancotech sourced ti.

    in my bike shop days a regular customer had 1 that weighed an honest 19lbs.

    Cool. Reminds me a lot of their megatube ti road frames.

    Is that rust on the inside of the chain stay?

    Quick FYI: Scott had moved to the Slingshot team by the time this frame was made. He made the switch in 93 or 94 I believe.

    Just a little tire rub on the inside of chain stay. There is also a little left of a glue that probably came off a tape that was protecting the chain stay.

    I got an email back from Scott and he mentioned that only 3 to 5 of these frames came to US specific for the team. These frames were raced in 1995.
