Bianchi Oltre at Eurobike

This style Oltre model, shown at Eurobike, didn't appear in the first announcements for what is now Bianchi's top of the line frame.

  1. everyones going for the stealth bike look, i'm not a big fan

  2. One wonders where these are made after the rumors of Bianchi shutting down production in Italy. It'll be a sad day when/if the venerable name joins so many others as nothing more than a sticker on a Chinese-made product.

  3. Really doesn't matter where the bike is built. I matters that the spirit and commitment to excellence of the northern Italian marque lives on. The new bike is all of that and more.

  4. Why not cut out the middle men and just buy these frames directly from the producers in Asia? Their designers/builders/QC guys evidently produce bikes meeting/exceeding Italian standards. I have no problem riding a bike badged Advanced International Multitech or Martech- a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
