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.

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.

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).

Celeste for the win.... Although B1 looks really good too

Maybe he bought the Celeste and now just spends his spare time staring at it rather than posting on WW :mrgreen:
