sold off my XR2 and got the XR4.

The Vision Integrated handlebar in my size was not available so I make do with the old setup.

No change from the XR2 in terms of component except for some minor things like the CarbonDry Big Pulley Kit and a switch of wheelset from the Boras to a custom wheelset.

Brakes are also direct mount now so that means i have to build a new bike with the spare brakes :cry:

Will let you guys know how it feels as compared to the XR2 once I dial in the fit properly.

*The extra steerer tube is uncut because i want to make sure the vision stem height will have enough clearance! yes - it looks odd for now but i will live with it.

Nice bike although from an aesthetic viewpoint the angle of the bars drop in relation to the stem doesn't look right. Can you give us some details of your custom wheels? Ta.

Looks awesome love the XR4. Fantastic that you put campagnolo on the bike that's the way it should be! I want a new race bike to replace my '07 C50 and love the Italian look. Maybe this is the bike to go for

Bike looks amazing! Just bought the Specialissima and having a little buyers remorse after seeing your XR4!

Yes. Perhaps you can rotate the bars forward and move the shifters up and still get the same fit?

:D I've yet to dial in my fit yet as I just collected the bike. The vision intergrated bar should arrive next week and I'll take more pics once that is installed.

And thank you all for the kind words.

Lovely looking bike. I'm interested to hear about the ride as well as early reports are extremely positive.

That is one beautiful bike. I was never really into Bianchi, but as of late, that has changed. Especially after seeing yours.

Horizontal stem and bar upwards... Why?

Get a +/- 6 stem brother.

Nice bike otherwise. :)

Same, they now have 2 frames I'd really love to have in my stable. XR4 and Specialissima.

XR4 looks more special than Specialissima actually...
