Cool!

Dogma is expected, Sprint is interesting (could be a super focussed aero bike as the Oltre is already a great 'aero' all rounder), Shiv TT is waaaay overdue.

The last sprint Bianchi made was a track bike.. Wonder if it's a disc brake version of that now??

I had a look at the wheels list and see a couple of interesting sets:

ENVE 3.4 All Road Clincher
Giant SLR 0 and SLR 1 65mm (assuming this is the #overachieve wheelsets)
Tune Schwarzbrenner 45 (https://en.tune.de/produkt/wheels/cross ... ncher.html)

There is a Sprint and Sprint Disc with the RD class, not the TR class. Something tells me this will be an all-out aero bike based on the name.

Yes, a track bike with brakes...makes perfect sense.

It's probably an alloy "crit bike."

There is also a 2019 refresh of the Felt AR series aero bike. I hope to god it’s rim brake or there’s a rim variant

Felt has already moved to disc even with their Triathlon series (and these were just "temporary" models until they manage to build disc IA's from ground up), so I'm betting the new AR will be disc-only, just as respective Specialized, Cervelo, Cannondale aero bikes. The only thing which speaks against this, is the current Felt practice of having similar frame shapes for all AR series from AR FRD down to AR5 - if they keep this approach, a disc-only AR model would reduce their potential market in low-mid segment against, for example, Cervelo S3 Rim, Trek Madone rim bikes.
Retired bikes: Cervelo S5 2015 / Felt AR FRD 2014 / Cannondale SS HM 2014 / Scott Addict SL 2014 / Scott Plasma Premium 2014 / Orbea Orca 2008 / Look 596 /

I really don’t understand Bianchi’s strategy with orphaned “low-cost” carbon models like this new Sprint and the Aria. So much bloat...

Indeed. It's a bit chaotic. Aria could even make some sense as it's a full-blown aero machine, even though there's already the XR3 if somebody wants an aero mid-range bike. The Aria is just a bit cheaper and a bit more aero.

But this Sprint, I just don't get. Is it supposed to be what, another low to mid-range kind-of-aero bike?

Bianchi seems to be completely lacking any clear strategy and focus, so they go about creating a million slightly different bikes, hoping some of them will sell. :noidea:

Pinarellos just keep getting uglier model by model.

I was asking an asian manufacturer about UCI homologation for their carbon rims.
They have no rims that are on the list, but they told me they had one frame on the homologatiojn list, the R06. I can't link it to a bike brand, can you ?

That Dogma looks very aero, but I do not like the curved top tube and seatstays one bit. It looks like it's been in an accident.
Is that a new intergrated stem/bar combo?
