Thanks! It's a Bianchi Giro. A local shop had the bike on the show floor for a while and eventually sold the group, wheels and components, so I picked up the frame for $150 new.

Okay jdwertz a lot to cover here: I LOVE the Hellafaster and I do NOT understand why Van Dessel axed it. I think you made a great choice with the November wheels, and that's a solid build though I can't tell if it's a 7900 or 6700 set besides the Red crank (RD is obscured in the tall grass).

Looks like a steed that could win a few crits regardless.

Looks like Dura Ace to me. Ultegra STIs have an indent in the name plates wheres Dura Ace do not.

Thanks for the kind words. It is indeed 7900 with a SRAM Red crank. I have always liked the Hellafaster and just recently found one in my size. There is a new Hellafaster frame that Van Dessel just released but some of the neater things from the old design have been lost.

Never noticed that subtle difference between 6700 and 7900... although I don't think my eyes could pick it out in most cases regardless. You learn something new everyday.
