Just picked up my Bianchi Infinito from Epic Cycles, what a bike it is awesome (imo) I cannot stop smiling when I look at and ride it.

I will post some pics when taken some.

I have to say that that Epic Cycles was great, really helpful and a great service. The fit up check and test ride really made a difference and for anybody new to road cycling or unsure what bike they want or suits them they should really try Epic.

    That's really not on, i was looking forward to seeing those piccies :(

    Yeah me too.

    The green Infinito's about the only thing I lust over enough to ditch my frame for.

    I'm not a campag man though so at £1700 for the frame or whatever it is, it'll never happen.

    I take that back, just seen that green Baum in the Ti thread.

    You are at risk of offending the entire Bianchi owners club, mate! :shock:
    I do believe they call that 'green', Celeste. :wink:

  • Right here you go, fingers crossed as first time of trying to upload pics.

    First two pics are my actual bike (dodgy camera though) and second two are off Epic web site.

    Let me know what you think :)

    It looks a lovely bike to me, I'd love a spin on it. I wouldn't be worried about comments (even though you haven't got any :lol: ), it's what you think that counts.

  • Really nice. I lusted after one of these for quite a while. You've still got the protective stickers on the cranks though :P
  • Saw one of those last time I was in Epic, sorry if there are any thumb prints on it :D

    Really like the combination of colours, think I prefer the white bars as shown on the Epic photos, but that's nothing really.

    Have you ridden it yet? I'm guessing not from the colour of the tyres!

    I meant to post the other day. Seriously nice bike. Saw one in the LBS a few weeks ago and had to give it a good looking over. The Athena Grouppo is very pretty indeed. The crank is muchos good looking in silver. Wise choice on the Fulcrum 3's. 7's would almost be undermining the frame.

    Not a massive fan of the white tyres. No doubt they're gonna go rather browny/grey soon. No biggy though.

    Anyway how does it ride? Tell us all about it.

    Looks great to me.

    Love the green. :wink:

    Nice!
  • Very nice.

    Think I sightly prefer the red/white one but it's still a great looking bike.
  • Only ridden the bike on two short trips so far but it is awsome (imo), Ben at Epic said that so far everybody who has test ridden one has bought one.

    Protective stickers still on some parts but will be off this weekend (please be dry)...now got my full kit and ready to go so really hoping it will be dry for me to give it a good testing.

    I'm hoping you mean a matching Bianchi jersey in celeste? That would look daddy-o cool 8)
  • Super dooper. :D
    I ache, therefore I am.
  • Unfortunately won't be looking daddy-o cool Cool
    8) just went for standard kit
  • Very nice - I nearly went to Epic on Saturday to view one but went on a ride instead.

    I have the funds now at last but can't decide between one of these or Wilier Izoard.
  • Ian - can I ask if Epic 'did a deal' for you on the upgrade on the Fulrum 3's?

    I'm considering an Infinito but as someone has said, Fulcrum 7's probably wouldn't do it justice.

    Ian,

    I have the '09 928 C2C and love it - this though definately looks like an improvement!

    How does it ride, particularly out of the saddle? I've found my C2C to be ultra comfortable but it's downside is that it feels very soft and flexy when climbing or doing anything out of the saddle. Yours looks like it has much stiffer forks than the 09 models.

    Epic seem to include the 3s in their price:

    I must admit, I really like the look of the Infinito. The pictures don't really do it justice, I saw one in Geoffrey Butler's and it's the bomb.

    Plus, the geometry is spot on for peeps like me with long legs and short arms!

  • I've a friend who rides one of these. The photos don't do justice to what a nice looking ride it is!

    this is great news. Most places I've seen it, it has Fulcrum 7s for the same price as the Epic listing!
  • Sorry for delay in responding.

    The Fulcrum 3's were part of the package that Epic offer for the bike, that is the maion reason I went to Epic, however having been there now I would go back again for my next ride.

    I actually popped in there yesterday to pick up a few bits, they have some serious Orbea bikes in there at the moment.

    Regards to how it rides, it is awsome but I am pretty new to the sport so don't count on me. In the saddle it is very comfy and out it is stiff as a super stiff thing.

    That is a VERY nice looking bike 8)
