Frame tubes are pulse TIG welded then micro-fused to avoid excessive heating of the thin walls. CAD designed tube profiles add more stiffness and vertical resilience to an already excellent frame. Includes a Bianchi carbon fiber fork with 1 1/8" threadless steerer. Color is celeste with dark blue decals.

    3 times stronger than aluminum
    2 times stronger than titanium
    25% stronger than the best non-Boron steel alloys

    So says Bianchi... We'll just see about that.... Started building it up last night. Unfortunately, I don't have Campy bits so I'll be going with Dura Ace and Mavic wheels.

    And the (almost) completed build. Waiting on the black and Celeste bottle cages... Help me decide. With Brooks Ti Swift or The Fizik saddle.

    With Brooks:



    With Fizik:

    I probably look less out of place on my Bianchi than I would you on your BMC.

    I still think your bike looks awesome even with a Brooks.

    It seems to me that Specialized bikes somehow always look worse on their website than they do in person or in other people's photographs, and this bike is no exception. Just curious, would you say the black is just black, or is it closer to the carbon color? Not sure if you looked at the 2011 Roubaix Elite in carbon, but that color is what I'm talking about.

    I would say its just black. The new elites are carbon fiber black.. Nice looking bikes

    non drive side, using a wired computer in 2010, cranks that dont match the rest of the gruppo, that front qr skewer, and living in a place with cinderblock walls... well, the cinderblocks sort of match the wired computer.

    And I don't think that you have lined up the logos on the tyre sidewalls with the valves either.

    Lining up the logo's with the valves?
    I thought the idea was to line up the logo on the tire with the logo on the rim?

    You line the logo of the tire up with the valve so if you get a flat you can find where it happened on the tire easier.
