Thank you all for the compliments! As of right now it's snowing, so no pictures today I'm afraid. Will post photo with zondas as well!

As much as my bianchi only cost me £670 , I wish I had never sold it. This is of course in another league, well jel.

Very nice and great built!
Btw, what's the horizontal toptube length of a 50cm Oltre?

Cheers.

Very beautiful. I love Bianchi's too and have drooled over a many catalouge as well, but I'm closer to 50 and so most of the ones I dreamed about were Steele & always Celeste. I do really like the new carbon however. Great Build. Thanks for sharing. :thumbup:

A short ride report and comparison to my Cervelo. I did 2x20min@320w today with a couple of sprints to get the feel of the bike.

Stiffness in terms of pedaling seems quite similar. They both feel very efficient, responsive and rocket-like.

The front is a LOT stiffer than on the Cervelo. I don't know if it's the fork or frame, but it feels much more agile and precise when cornering and during sprints.

Comfort: Now this is something very different. The Bianchi seems to float on a cloud of happiness over high-vibration and fast repeating small bumps. I will take it for a much longer ride next weekend to compare it to the Cervelo on longdistance rides.

So far I'm really impressed. The Cervelo never stopped giving me the "wow, this is a great bike" feeling, even after 2 years and I should be accustomed to it. If the Bianchi can deliver the same feeling I'm more than pleased.

Happy riding! :beerchug:

Thanks - I can't remember If I have a 53 or 55... but I'm 5,9cm.... Would consider getting an XR if its feels substantially better. But not sure I can justify getting another bike when I've only ridden my Oltre for a few months.

Enjoy.
