Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The Sempre is available as a frameset. Really pretty and BB30.

Sorry if this is old news; I've followed the Bianchi 2011 news on the various blogs.

Wow, the Oltre looks really nice but it's so overpriced! The 928SL was overpriced before at $3.5K but $5K (for the FRAME) is really (approaching or even surpasses Colnago/Pinarello/De Rosa territory) overpriced for a brand that is used more often as a utility bike rather than racing bike in Italy.

Maybe that perception is demanding a change.

Maybe.

When I was in Italy, all the hardcore roadies envied our Trek Madone and Cannondale Super Six (meaning, they would trade in their Colnagos for one of those). The only Bianchi bikes I saw (maybe 50 of them) were Mtn., hybrids, or commuters.

But I'll just add this for comparison (and this is coming from a Bianchi fan): The Oltre frameset is the same MSRP as a Willier Cento Uno Superleggera, another "Italian" carbon frameset, $4,999.00.

I always felt Bianchi was the everyman's Italian bike, sort of like Trek is to Americans. Their pricing just surprised me, that's all; maybe the recession truly is over...

It's supposed to be $800.00 - Campione competes with Specialized Steel Allez double DT shifter

The Sempre 105 and Via Nirone 7 105 seem to be relatively competitively priced, at least my humble opinion. The Campione (typo on website) is, at $800.00 (according several Bianchi blogs) is very close to the Specialized Steel Allez double.

That would be my "goto" bike if and when the steel Veloce needs replacing (25,000 miles now) and I didn't have the coins for the Sempre 105. I'm not terribly impressed with '11 Veloce 10speed groupset - seems to be a downgrade on the shifters (3 up, 1 down) and BB over last year. 105, now that it has under tape cabling for the derailleur housings (I know, cosmetic, but I swear a Shimano rig with the cables coming out of the side of the shifter housing looks like a beetle). According to a YouTube video my LBS, Granfondo of Nashville, put up, the 105 Sempre is a 17.5lb bike.

BTW, the Via Nirone Tiagra is around $1,100.

I saw the new Via Nirone 7 (two different versions) at my nearest LBS today. It looks like a bargain for the price. Very high-quality appearance with some fairly unique tube/fork shapes. Cool stuff.
