I too had an XL, the BB shell came loose from the frame though which was a shame. Have been looking at the 928 ever since and may just end up bying one. Anyways, congrats Bugman, looks sensational. Finnaly I'll join the cry for more pics, please?

Sorry for not posting better pics. I really had no idea folks would want to see more of the Bianchi. I even thought there would be more negative response because of the "cookie cutterness" of her, plus she really isn't a true weight weenie. Or maybe there's a lot of negativity towards it but weenies are quiet?

When I get my new stem I'll add more pics without the ugly mug and saddle bags (^_^). Or if I have a camera along one of my rides I'll snap a few with the current set-up.
I will try to weigh her on the Physics building on campus soon.

Didn't mean the clamp for the seatpost but the clamp on the seatpost for the saddle.

How are you getting on with the saddle?

It's my favourite saddle. I keep buying one ride it for a few weeks, think this isn't nice and put the Ariones back on, which to me are comfy but look like a long plank of wood!

I like Bianchi's, nice bike.

@ San Marco
I rode the Selle San Marco Squadra for 13yrs and loved it but this is weight weenies and I wanted to try something lighter. The only complaint I have so far for the Aspide is I wish it was a centimeter or two wider in the front. As I put power down while climbing my inner thigh next to the gluteal fold touches the clamp area on the Record seat post. Other than that it's comfy so far, but have only been on a couple 100 mile rides so far.

@ Capisce
I thought of that but it would mean I will have to be someone who cares about matching and fashion. Even thought my girl friend wishes I dressed better, it's not going to happen (^_^).

Thanks for the comments...

Here's the stem I've been waiting 3 months for...

Will attach it and give you Bianchi lovers more bike porn later (^_~)'

I hear ya Tikka. That red needs to go, made thinner/smaller or add more red the seat post or something. I'm leaning toward more red though cause it's suppose to make you hungry. Sometimes I forget to eat on the 100+ mile rides because I'm too busy pushing the pace, I tend to bonk out (x_x)fizzle!
I don't think those Zipp cages look good either. Maybe I'll get some Arundels to match the frames carbon weave. They are the only other carbon bottle cages I trust.

"im a tennis director"... I KNEW there was something about you! From the beginning I said, "this is a positive, stand up guy I can see myself hanging out with!". HaHa!

I like the stem ...looks good with the SRAM red...
i agree with you the cges look a bit out of place....
Patao's or some Arundels

i also think a pair of Stronglight CT2 rings would look awesome on that crank..

Great looking bike, you can't beat a bit Italian style :thumbup:
I would change the seatpost for a 3T one to match the stem that would finish it off nicely and save a few grams.
