This may be a matter of sponsorship rather than frame quality but, why aren't there more riders on Bianchis out there? Admittedly, I do not know very much about the comparisons that may be drawn between high end bicycles—I have a mid-range Specialized and am quite happy with it. That said, I always thought of Bianchi as a reputable manufacturer?
Note: due to Versus' rider-oriented coverage, there is a good deal I am missing. The camera angles are usually on the riders themselves, their faces rather than the rides. That said, has anybody compiled a complete list of each team's equipment sponsors for the current Tour?
