Its nice to see white bartape that isnt killed yet ??????// <-- In my case I rarely changed the bar tape? Bikes are for riding and racing... not to fall off and scratch everything



Nice bike i like it a lot...

On all my bikes I try to keep crashing to a minimum but somtimes its in somone elese control to take you out. Lesson learnt: Never install brand new white bar tape the night before a race. hahaha

at least with white tape you know it's clean. i never wash my black bar tape - it's probably pretty filthy.

Sweet bike, but I heard that the lawyers at Bianchi are ready to sue you for using thier paint job without permission.

I don't know about an actual patent on the color, but it's more to tradition the colors associated with some of the more well know companies like Bianchi and Gios. There's most likely a standard Pantone swatch that each company refers to when mixing up thier colors, but it seems nowadays colors are on the outs with the advent of the poplular natural blackish carbon fiber weave.
