Here's an example of the sort of celeste overload I like ;)

Progress is slow but all decals are now in the right place. Waiting for the ordered crankset and brakes...

For the moment I ran into a new dilemma: either stock polished alu 2010 Chorus brakes, or wait for the 2011 black Chorus brakes and have them customized with one celeste arm (silimar to the custom Campa brakes on Valverde's mount)

Obviously you have to wait for the celeste arm.

Why is that even a question? :D

Because I have my doubts between going for "2011" or sticking to my original idea of a more classic look.

Interesting point, with the very nice paint that you have with the original placement of the decals...about wanting to maintain a classic look.

That said, given the stated preference for celeste overload...I think the black and celeste arms will still fit in nicely and be a nice detail that few other bianchi owners will have. Arguably, you also have a very modern integrated bar/stem combo.

I have 3 bianchis plus my wife's. One is a white mono-q with only a few celeste accents and it's the one I'm considering getting rid of.

Best,
Michael

It's not like the headset or derailleurs are black and/or celeste. If anything, painting your brakes might garner unnecessary attention. Here's one vote for leaving them. Looks perfect.

Very nice indeed!
I would insist on black saddle-bartape or white saddle-bartape.

The celeste saddle looks already...
