What a lovely Bianchi. A little new, for my tastes, but a real nice bicycle, none the less.

Welcome to the Bike Forum and always try to keep the rubber side down:-)

Hello nice Bianchi but a bit new for me. I think you have a 2000ish, but that is a catalog I am on the hunt for the graphics look very simillar to the 2001 Alloro but that was 7005 Alloy (may not be a huge difference) and had Ultegra. I don't know when those fancy outboard BBs came into vouge but the components my post date the frame a few years.

Hi all and thanks for the comments... Bianchi girl, I am sure you know this site? It has catalogues from 2000 amongst others:

I have a 2000 Veloce. Steel frame rather than aluminum, but a lot of the design touches and logo labels look very similar to yours. Mine has a threaded carbon fork while yours if of the integrated headset variety, so I'd suspect yours might be a couple of years newer than mine.

Added: The 2000 catalog someone linked to above does show a few that have integrated headsets.

Yes I have seen that site but alot of the catalogs don't seem to open for me. Also you need to be sure you are looking at the US catalog (assuming you are in the US) and not some other catalog. While the graphics and frame materiel may be similar the components may be different from one area to the next.
