Here's the updated 2014 version. 2013 Details below.
Only major changes for now are Bora Ones, Black Saddle and zero setback post. Loving the Boras thus far they are as advertised. No BS wheels that are quite stiff. Really nice that they come with campy's amazing QRs, cork pads, and valve extenders. Only issue thus far is them collecting a fair bit of water after riding through a downpour for the last 60km of race.

I am waiting for the Power2Max Campy powermeter to become available which will probably be the next thing.

Weight as shown is 7.2kg

Here's my 2013 bicycle. Finally got a decent pic on the cell phone while riding yesterday. First campy bike and I am loving it. I have wanted a Bianchi/Campy bike for a while so this is a fun change from 3 chinese direct frames in row. The farsports wheels have been great too. I think Bianchi has come a long way in the last few years.

Frame: Bianchi Sempre Pro Size 59
Group: Chorus 11 w/ Record RD
Daily Wheels: Farsports 50mm clinchers CX Rays DT Swiss 240 w/ Vittoria Corsa
Nice Wheels: Farsports 24mm tubulars CX Rays DT Swiss 240 w/ Veloflex Carbon
Pedals: Speedplay Zero
Bar: 3T Rotundo
Stem:3T arx stealth
Seatpost:3T dorico stealth
Saddle: San Marco Royale Carbon

Weight is 6.9kg as shown with climbing wheels

That is boss! One of our local team rides these and they are a mean race bike. Really like the build. Good work!

The shop said they were only making the celeste frameset with aluminium steer tube. Plus I like the subtle look.

^ I was going to say the same.

Something about the conservative frame shape, mix of white and black, etc... it just works. Very nice!

Very clean! Classy. I dig it. Black, white and just a touch of celeste.

Thanks all.

Planned changes include power meter. I am thinking Power2Max. Record SRM would be much prettier but too much $.

What do you think of those wheels (either the clinchers or tubs) - in more detail than "great"? How many miles have you put on them?

The farsports were great, for what you pay for them. The low profile wheels pictured were $800 for carbon tubulars with cx-rays and DT 240s hubs. I had no issues with the wheels shown and would order them again. I sold them and picked up the Boras because I wanted more stiffness and was willing to give up 200 grams. The farsports 50mm deep clinchers I had were also great for 3,000km until I had an issue with the brake track deforming on a steep descent on a hot summer day. My opinion is that chinese carbon wheels are a great option provided you buy from the right vedor and stick to tubulars. The technology just isn't there to overcome the fundamental challenges that are imposed by a clincher rim/tire system.

You can read more about it in the open mold chinese thread.
