Very nice and slick build! :thumbup: It reminds me that I want to build an Oltre Nero really bad. :-D

How are the wheels, and why are you changing the saddle?

I've been lusting for this frame for quite some time now... Doesn't help that Bianchi just opened a store just across the street and have the Nero w/ Campy EPS... Makes me want to sell my RXR VIP....

At least the saddle is made in Italy, shame about the rest of the bike though.

Does Bianchi still produce any frames in Italy? :noidea:

The celeste team ed. one really look great in the flesh.

Provided they've gotten past their cracking issues, sounds like they could be on a winner.

Quite a stiff platform too, by all reports.

That looks really, really good! I've been considering the Ultegra Di2 myself for my own Oltre Nero and this might just seal the deal.

As for the ride: quite stiff, no flex (at least none that i can generate with my puny legs) but actually rather comfortable.

OP: Just wanted to give my 5 cents - not to hijack your thread.

I like the silhouette of the frame, but the fork could be massive... :P

The Oltre is made in Treviglio in Bergamo, not Taiwan or china. :wink:
