My 2010 is no softie either. I wonder if they've made any changes to the layup over the years.

Actually, for a bike made for long rides, it makes sense to me that the smoothness of the ride was a slight peev. Harshness over long rides will of course contribute to rider fatigue.

Still and all, a very favorable review I thought.

Yes, still a very favorable review, but not what you would expect given Bianchi's design goals for the frame. You know, K-VID inserts and BAT stay design and all. Guess there's more marketing hype than engineering behind those acronyms, but it doesn't really matter. The ride tells you that it's still an excellent frame.

Also, I can confirm the author's supposition that a carbon handlebar takes a lot of the vibration out, even if only in the drops.

Now, I just need to get an FSA K-Force Light SB25 seatpost (since it won VeloLab's recent test for vibration absorption) and I'll have the supple yet firm setup I so desire.
