but evey single bike that is around the $2000 mark cuts corners one way or the other, with a few exceptions $2000 will not get you anything really remarkable. the few bianchi infinito bikes that i have seen have paint jobs that are much cleaner and better executed than most treks, giants, etc. at their price range. on the other hand we have the dogma asian made, heavier and more expensive and still get more love, hate, and attention, and if we do not look at where bikes are made colnago bikes have nothing that is truly remarkable and yet they are as expensive if not more than binachi's top model.

For the price I find Bianchi frames really well made. Almost perfect paint and a lot of nice small details.

This is the latest review on Bike Radar http://www.bikeradar.com/road/gear/cate ... d-12-46020" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. They talk it up but is a little pricey, but looks the goods to me. However I do believe that my Ciooc Devilry is pure italian masterpiece :P



Review is Cycling Plus, ergo it's worthless.

I have been a biot of a closte fan ever since Pantani rode them...

A few months ago I had a ride on a 2011 Oltre, and it is a very very nice bike! Stiff as hell ,and it felt very fast!
Cant think that the Sempre would be a bad bike.

that website looks like Viners are made in the Far East and then translated through google, I've seen better from Chinarello sites....

Is that seat tube angle really 73 deg? It looks less to me. I think that's what it says on the geometry diagram, and I'm guessing that that the picture is shown is the 60 cm frame in the diagram.

Page has a curve in it so the pic looks exaggerated.

Your not reading it right! All frames are made in Italy apart from the two entry model frames which are hand finished in Italy!

I believe Viner are in administration which is indeed sad news. Top end Viners are built by Bartoletti under licence, however he has his own brand "Legend", high end Italian frames.
