I wasn't looking, at least not in the short term. I was thinking about getting a new road frameset sometime next year. But this weekend I stumbled upon a deal too good to pass up.
I just got my hands on a Bianchi Mono-Q frame set with Shimano 105 components. And it's exactly what I was looking for.
- I was looking for a European designed frame.
- I wanted a mid-line carbon frame - light, but not as stiff as a true racing frame.
- I wanted Shimano 105 components. Since 105's are not designed for racing, I think they shift a little smoother than Ultegra. This is the bike I'll go to when I want to go out and ride.
Here are some pictures:
Hopefully I can get it out on the road today. As you can see the living room remodel has stalled a bit...
