Not to worry, you have a dealer close by that handles Bianchi. Blood, Sweat and Gears. So service/warranty should be no trouble.

All bike companies use the three main component suppliers, Sram. Shimano & Campy (My personal choice). So quality won't be an issue. Frames are built in China/Taiwan like most brands (except the REALLY high end models) which is not necessarily a bad thing.

As for Bianchi durability, I hit a pot hole @20+ mph, went ass over tea kettle, broke my clavicle clean in two... But the bike was A-Ok!
