Nice one! What's with the fork?

The original 928 fork was curved, so I use the T-cube fork I bought when I crashed the FG-Lite-fork. Is yours an original 928L fork?

Your Sempre looks cool too, what wheels are those?

Thanks.
It's Tune70/Mig180, Aerolite, one Edge 1.25-rim and one 250g Alibaba-rim. 926g total.

My fork is from a 928SL. Very light, 280 gr with cut steerer, and looks a lot better than the original curved one :)

Those wheels look great, great weight too! Which tyres do you use?

Hi All,

Got myself a Bianchi Oltre for this season and have been riding it for 6 months now, loving every minute of it! Quite stiff and racy but surprisingly comfortable, even if that wasn't a primary concern.

As for the spacer tower... well it's 20mm of spaces and is the result of a Retúl fitting session. I had a slipped disc in my back some years ago and am not as flexible as i might have wanted. However it looks tolerable and the handling doesn't suffer from it.

Bianchi Oltre Nero size 530
SRAM Force
Enve 45 clincher rim / DT Swiss 190 ceramic hubs
25mm Schwalbe Ultremo ZX HD tyres
Challenge latex tubes
3T Ergonova limited handlebar
Raceface 110 mm stem (Temporary - until i get my 110 mm 3T)
Specialized Romin saddle
Tune Bottle cages
Speedplay X1 depals

Chose the Force group as it comes in BB30 and i've always been a SRAM fanboy. The group weight in the BB30 edition is less than 2 kgs, which I'd have to pay 3 times as much for if I'd chosen Super Record or some such.

For now I only have the crappy iphone pic, but more will follow.

Veloflex Sprinter on that picture, but they where ruined in a crash, so I have bought similar looking Vittoria Evo SC.

My T-cube fork is 330g, same as the Sempre fork.


Nice Oltre Nero, klingej!

Strobbekoen, that bike looks all business. Lightweight bikes and fancy equipment are great but that bike, i can see includes some trick kit just looks the absolute dogs nuts. I love it.

Nice clean looking sturdy ride. Definitely a keeper for those winter months.

Hello guys, Bianchi owners :D
Here is my vintage Bianchi Rekord 845.

Here how it is looked 1.5 years ago:

And at the end of this summer:

Image

And now :lol:

Image

(I've taken it to pieces because I'm going to re-build it to spring, in a little more-vintage style (Campy aero seat post, Selle San Marco Regal saddle,Campy headset, Cinelli stem, etc. )

You can see some more photos and infos from my bike on Velospace: http://velospace.org/node/35819

Hope you like it guys :oops:

I no longer have this EV4 but it was an awesome bike! The Celeste was actually pearled even though it was a flat finish.

Lovely! I've always wanted an EV4 but never found one in my size. There's something sexy about lightweight alu bikes, i think. As if carbon makes it all too easy to be a ww...
