    2007 Bianach Concept



    Bianchi is heading in the right direction. Wish I could just buy the frameset, cranks and wheels.

    I want that frame and the cranks. I'd build my own wheels. Why couldn't you have posted this earlier? then I may have been able to get one under my tree.

    yeah, whoa, what's the deal with that? "external"? I looked at the documentation and I still have no idea how that works...

    I imagine the bb shell is compatible with any properly-threaded BB, though, so that wouldn't be an issue with just the frameset.

    External is the biz my friend. I used to be against it too until running it on my road bike. All positives (stiffer, less bearing wear, etc.) except for a few mm wider Q factor which isn't enough to really give any appreciable power loss.

    As far as I can ascertain, Bianchi is not selling the frameset seperately in Canada.

    I'm actually thinking of buying one and taking up the fine hobby of track racing.

    DoshKel loves his.

    But yeah, that steez looks really sexy with no decals.

    Does anyone know where to get the Truvativ Omnium cranks? I want to try polishing the decals off an 07 veloce crankset.

    Crankset and BB for one (like mentioned earlier).

    Different wheelset than the 2005 (not '06 I believe) model as well. $100 less to top it off.

    Thats it I think.

    External BBs are actually pretty cool and are a nice bit of engineering, IMO. Nice looking bike.

    Why do the specs list SRAM cranks? They are clearly Truvativ Ominiums in the picture. Which is correct for the '07?
    It would be funny if it wasn't so tragic...

    Because they are one in the same.

    Yes, I see that SRAM bought out Truvativ a couple years ago. Thx.

    +whatever for the external BB interface. Though it may be ugly as sin to some, it is just a superior way to transfer power to the rear wheel. I sort of hate the truvativ/fsa interpretation though. With no pinch bolt to clamp to the humongous spindle, the non-drive cranks work themselves loose sometimes. While regular checking of the 8mm bolt remedys this, I'm really damn lazy and have chucked a crankarm on two different bikes in the last year.
    Shimano has it going on.
