Bianchi is the world’s oldest bicycle-making company still in existence, founded in 1885 by Eduardo Bianchi in Milan, Italy. No doubt, Bianchi is the pioneer of bicycle development since the beginning. They invented equal-sized wheels with pneumatic rubber tires in 1895, first bicycle ever featuring a cardan joint transmission in 1901 and front brake system in 1913.
Bianchi’s Reparto Corse (Bianchi’s Race Department) facility hand built frames for their top riders and their sponsored teams back in 1980s and 1990s. In years 1992-93 they sponsored Italian GB-MG Team, with some very strong riders such as Fabio Baldato, Andrej Tchmil, Ballerini, Franco Chioccioli, Dag-Erik Pedersen, the young sprinter Mario Cipollini and neo-prof Davide Rebellin. In 1993 M.Cipollini won Gent-Wevelgem and 4 stages at the Giro d’Italia. They were winning races around the globe on BIANCHI EL and BIANCHI Genius Reparto Corse bikes, same as we are presenting here…
Proudly presenting another superb Italian steel racing machine – Bianchi Genius made by Bianchi’s Reparto Corse, which dates back to 1993. The frame is made of very special Columbus Genius tubing. Extra thin tubes are TIG welded, there is no lugs and the result is one of the lightest steel frames.

Ready for serious riding.
