Repainted: Marjorie’s 2001 Bianchi Brava in “Marylbone”

In a nutshell, Marjorie came to us looking for a new bike.  She kicked a few tires, but what really helped to hone her search was seeing a bike we had painted for Monica.  Once she understood that she could choose her own frame color, as well as any other option she wished, the search turned into a creative collaboration.  We often don’t know what the final product will look like when we begin, which is why it’s feels like a trip we take together.  Here we are below, arrived at our final destination, and we couldn’t be happier!

  • Bike: 2001 Bianchi Brava
  • Paint: Spray.Bike Marylbone
  • Wheelset: New Mavic Open Pro With 105 hub
  • Handlebar tape: Brooks Leather in maroon
  • Saddle: Brooks B17 Team Pro Classic in black
  • Tires: 700×28 Michelin Dynamic with white walls

We forgot to get any photos of the bike before all the modifications but found this image  below in a web search.  Minus the rusty spots, it didn’t look a whole lot different.
