The heart of a bike is the frame and the heart of Bianchi race bike is 121 years of racing heritage built into every frame. The Cross Concept is the leading cyclo-cross race bike in the market for a reason. We know racing and we know cross bikes. All others are following. If you can only buy one bike, this is it. A quick tire change turns the lightest and most nimble cross racer out there into a fast road bike. The Scandium/Carbon frame weighs just 1,340 grams for the 52cm size. Variable shaped tubing for stiffness, with flat top tube area for shouldering. Component up-spec for 2006 includes Cane Creek Strados wheelset, new WTB Cross Wolf tires, Truvativ cranks and Cane Creek non-squeal SCX cantilever brakes.
