Hey guys,

I ordered a Bianchi Oltre XR4 in Celeste gloss only to find out they offer custom color options at an additional cost called, Tavolozza. After doing more than 50 color combinations the following three are my finalists. Yes, Celeste is still one of my favorites. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

It’s a Bianchi. I can’t think of any other brand that has ever had such a strong identification with a single color as Bianchi. I vote Celeste.
Colnago C64 - The Naked Build; Colnago C60 - PR99; Trek Koppenberg - Where Emonda and Domane Meet;
Unlinked Builds (searchable): Colnago C59 - 5 Years Later; Trek Emonda SL Campagnolo SR; Special Colnago EPQ

I really like the inverse celeste option they've been making lately.
