Just. Get. It. Right. #4

Hidden Di2 cables - lovely.

Red graphics on the wheels picked up by red touches on the frame, stem and a teeny Italian flag on the chainstay - an elegant touch.

Blending the very on-trend white with the traditional Bianchi celeste - aesthetically considered.

Not noticing that the front mech has been accidentally shifted out of the big ring so when there was the presence of mind to rotate the cranks back a bit so the pedals were in "just the right place" for the photo the chain was forced to wrap too far round the chainring and kink awkwardly towards the rear - shoddy.  

Shimano on an Italian frame - criminal.

Uh-oh. I have Shimano on an Italian* frame.

*Italian marque but from end of range outsourced to Taiwan - does that give me a loophole?

Whoever put this spec together needs shooting,it looks bloody awful. I won't be popping into Evans anytime soon to snap one up. Saying that you'd have to push your way past all the un-sold BMC bikes to find one.
