Agreed on the reverse Celeste (despite my previous vote for the Celeste matt). A little less in your face and lets you pair it with Celeste coloured bar tape.

Just saw the Matt Celeste in person and fell in love. Will receive my frameset on Friday or Monday. Woohoo!


congrats! any build plans yet?

I have a XR3, I think seatpost is similar, just be careful with it, its rather tight. The paint around the seatpost can easily chip away if you pull the seatpost out/upwards too fast......(like what I did)

Reverse Celeste is very nice, but a real Bianchi is Celeste.
I mean coke vs. diet coke, correct vs. political correct...

Normally I like to buck trends and do things a little differently, if functionality doesn't suffer.

But there is only one colour for a BIanchi, I think you made the right choice :D

I used to think the same way, and I had a celeste infinito cv.

But now i'd rather have a reverse celeste scheme.

The reverse Celeste suits the more modern frame shapes imo.

I recommend matte celeste. It pops more than the gloss. You made the right call!

The third (A1). Not only because it’s a Bianchi. Even on a non Bianchi it’s gorgeous (Canyon Endurace WMN, Felt VR1 frameset to name a few bikes in similar shades).
