Do I restore it or turn it into a Gravel bike?


Recommended Posts

I’m taking delivery of this Bianchi M Alloy Pro tomorrow. I believe it’s a 2003 model.


I’m itching to build up a gravel bike and wondering if this will be a good project or would it be better to restore it back to some sort of it’s former glory.


It’s has a Campy Veloce groupset, which needs some work I believe.


Is this old enough to be considered a classic and if so is it worth restoring?

First question I would ask before considering a gravel build - what tyre clearance does it have? From my limited knowledge of road bikes from that era it may not have space for anything bigger than a 25c tyre which will not be ideal for gravel...


Other than that I have no input about it being a classic or not.
