Glad I didn't wait for next years range.
They've dropped the alu-carbon via Nirone and the colour schemes aren't as nice. (imo...)

If your thinking about one (I know a couple were around theses parts) get hunting the sales.

  • Other way round here.

    I was trying to decide between a Wilier Iozard and Bianchi 928 C2C and after seeing the 2010 Bianchi C2C Infinito I am glad I waited.

    Still going to test ride both but my preference on paper has now gone from the Wilier to the Bianchi.

    I couldn't agree with you more. I never like the curved down tube on the 928.
    The c2c infinito looks really great.

    My post referred to the via Nirones though. I'm not sure I'd be allowed to trade up now...
  • Thanks to the new mono q coming out I got the ultegra 2009 model at £200 knocked off the shop price, so got it at the 2009 shim 105 price :-) Bargain !
    Bianchi. There are no alternatives only compromises!

    They haven't dropped the alu-carbon Nirone for 2010 as it happens. I've just bought (well put a deposit on) a 2010 one with Campga Veloce.

    Really? It's not listed on their website. Can I ask where you've ordered it from?

    (Great bike BTW :wink: )

    I ordered it from AW Cycles in Caversham, Reading. It is a UK only bike I believe, and was only announced to the trade last week.

    That's good news then. I thought it was a bit odd as it left a big hole in the range.

    I sit corrected.

    I'm looking at the Wiliers at the moment having previously decided on a Trek then a Focus :lol: I'm turning into a bike snob and fancy something Italian (even though it is probably made in the same Taiwanese factory!) but the traditional Bianchi turquoise is what puts me off their bikes, the only other colour option I've seen was white I think :?

    LOL.

    Get a good one and it'll have a sticker on it saying it was handcrafted in Italy.

    Those Taiwanese get around you know :wink:

    On a serious note though even if they are made in the same Taiwanese factory I think the main difference is that Bianchi (allegedly) design/stress their own frames. This is a massive difference from manufacturers that buy in generic ones.

    I hadn't checked the American site. Just the Euro one.
