Strength:

frame gives especially good fit and adjustability campag record components very comfortable and fast ride looks fast when its just leaning against the wall

Weakness:

paint scuffs easily(unlaquered) bianchi carbon seatpost and selleitalia makes for a comfortable ride...but post has poor clamping design...difficult to adjust the seat angle pnp titanium bb requires its own removal tool that is difficult to purchase...also non-standard length 104mm...so will prob need replacing when i change the cranks.

Mix of excellent frame and top campag equipment with 'lesser quality' bianchi components made for a good price point with future upgrade path. Light (7.8lbs)and stiff, confident handling at higher speeds, comfortable fit. Great for 1 hr sprints and also for long days in the saddle. The Levitation front wheel is good, light and responsive....the back wheel is 'not good' and feels like the casette mech is wearing out. The bianchi carbon crank will also be replaced with something more worthy for next season.

Everything

None yet.

This bike is quite sexual. Italian everything! - This bike is quality! We brought it back to Melbourne from the Bianchi factory in Italy. This is the first time I have used any Campag componentry and I was impressed. My other bike is a 2001 Giant TCR1 and it takes some time to get used to the shifters compared to the Ultegra Sti levers. Too sum it up - perfect.
