"None on my bike...maybe Kym at the Aldgate Bike Shop took them off before selling me the bike. Man you can really see the weave in that CF cloth on the seat tube. Not so visible on mine but maybe your flash is accentuating it."

"2008 was the last year they still made any production frames in Italy. My 2012 Bianchi MTB has made in Taiwan all over it (as does my DeRosa). I think Look, Time, Cyfac & and some BMCs are the only non-custom carbon frames still made in Europe."

"Hi, 2008 928. Bottom of the seat tube as you can probably tell by the chainring visible on the left hand siode of the photo. The only other place I know that they used to place the sticker was a smaller on the the LHS chain stay."

"In blunt honesty, I agree. A member sold a great Cannondale with Ultegra (so better than 105) for $1500. Buying 2nd hand is a bit of a pain too."

"You can get a lot of bang for $2k but Bianchi does have some good pedigree. I recommend going to see Brian (Emu Legs) at Road Rage Cycles and ask about the Bianchi bikes he has in stock (or available). He built up heaps for the TDU expo."

Checked at local bike shop and sadly your bike would be just too big to be comfortable. Thanks again. If you fancy a night out at the fringe please feel free to get in touch and I'll get you a couple of free fix for my show. Best to contact me on face book. Look for Alan Anderson whisky comedian. Cheers again.

Hello Arif,

That is very kind of you thank you. I have a feeling it might be too big for me. I am175cm and ride a cannon dale 56cm. Many have said cannon dale undersize their frames and that it's equivalent to others 54cm. I will go to my LBS and tray 60cm for size. Again thank you for the kind offer and I hope you are back spinning asap. I'll be back in touch soon.

Kind regards Alan
