Hi every one... this is my Bianchi Oltre (Nero edition)...

I bought frameset with saddle, stem and handlebars used from, a friend of friend... It was, a real bargin cause he changes his bike frequently, and he allways buys top of the class...
The rest of build is all Ultegra 6700 components except 105 chainset with praxis chainrings, and stages 105 powermeter, paired with Planet-x Ct45 Alu-Carbon wheelset...

I know it is unusual to se high end frameset with 105 component or Ultegra, but this bike is workhorse for me, and i love every bit of her... It is quick, comfortable and beautiful too..

So...

Bianchi Oltre (2012)
size 59
Chainset - 105
Chainrings - Praxis (compact 50/34)
Front mech - Ultegra 6700
Rear mech - Ultegra 6700
Cassete - Ultegra 6700
Chain - Dura Ace
Shifters - Ultegra 6700
Brakes - Planet x ultralight
Stem - Fsa K-force
Handle bar - Fsa K-Force
Bottle cages - Fsa K-Force (china)
Saddle - Fizik Antares carbon rails
Wheelset - Planet X CT-45 (clincher)
Tyres - Shwalbe Ultremo ZX
Pedals - Speedplay zero cro-molly
PM - Stages 105

Weight: aprox 7,2 kg

Total cost for whole bike was aprox 2800 € including powermeter..

Next upgrade will be carbon tubulars only for racing, also planet x ct-45 model...

now pics... 8)

that is a nice bike. The only thing I can think of to change is to get some celeste green bar tape and the same fizik saddle but in celeste green.

Very nice!! I'm a fan of an all black Bianchi (even though mine is Celeste!!)
A lot of people are running the Planet X brakes nowadays, I think I may get some for mine.

This frame is already a classic.
Wheels will be a huge upgrade for sure.

Nice bike. That matt black looks about a thousand times better than the same in sick green colour.

Little update...

i sold planet x wheels and bought shimano rs-81, for all-round racing and training this year... (for next year ima going to get vision metron 40 tubulars... waiting for winter sales)...

shimano wheels are better quality in my opinion, better rolling, lighter but give slightly less aero performance... and i got them on nice discount...

also i changed saddle form fizik antares to san marco aspide fx... because I had groin numbness wihth fizik, and aspide solved that problem...

will post better picture ond day light.. :)
