Nice. Nearly bought a Sempre a few years ago but ended up with a Cinelli. How's the ride compare between the oltre and sempre?

Sweet :thumbup:

Had the chance to test ride an Oltre (xr1 and 2) the other day on a demo day, and was impressed how smooth it was 8)

I had an 2012 Sempre for a year then went to the Sempre Pro for about 2 years. They seem to be very similar in handling as the geometries are very very close. Although the Oltre does feel a bit more aggressive. I could definitely feel the BB in the Oltre was stiffer and I was very surprised by that because the Sempre was very stiff too. I can feel the differences pretty well, but I think it's mostly due to the fact that I rode the Sempre for so long. Might not be quite as obvious to others just jumping on the two to compare. I also like to think I can feel the little bit of the aero advantage but that might just be a mind thing.

It is listed as a different color according to Bianchi's specs. Both are matte finishes but they call the Speciallisimas "Flou Celeste". I haven't had the chance to see one in person yet so I'm not positive on that.

I like it. Can you show a closeup of the seatpost clamp area?

What's the drop from saddle-top to handlebar top? Looks pretty aggressive. Especially with that long stem. Very nice.

Its 14.5cm from saddle to bar. I've tried a 130 stem before but it was just a little too long. Feels good where it is when racing. Here's the clamp.

Looks good, can I ask did you have to adjust the clamp to fit the rails?
