Bianchi Road Line Revealed for 2007

Bianchi released details of their 2007 lineup in a BianchiPressEvent in Treviglio, Italy. There will be a few changes to the 2007 line. Trying to make it easier for the consumer to choose a bike, they have re-categorizing all their bikes: road into HoC, B4P, and C2C; mountain into Racing, Performance, and Leisure. Right...easier. Anyhow, Bianchi's 2007 lineup will incorporate carbon Nanotechnology, developed in-house, to their flagship HoC line of bikes, including the 928 SL seen previously. As stated by Bianchi's R&D Manager:

"The inspiration for a new frame can be provided by a sudden idea while you are riding. We are able to turn this fantasy into reality thanks to technology."

Hmm...BMC uses Easton carbon Nanotechnology. Let's use it too! I kid. Price for a 928 SL is a cool 9000 EU (that's $11, 383.20 USD - gulp). Weight for a 55cm is claimed to be 900 grams. The moutain bike range has yet to be announced, but I suspect their inspirational Nanotechnology to be used here as well, in their full-carbon frame and Al/carbon frame. Also new next year is the option of a SRAM Force 10 group. No mention of the Campagnolo UltraTorque integrated BB/crankset.

This event also marked the departure of Bianchi's product manager, Sky Yaeger. She has been with Bianchi for 17 years. Her last project involved designing the graphics for the 2007 29er SS Rita bike. Sweet, panels.
