New Cross Concept From Bianchi

We just got a first look at Bianchi’s 2008 range and saw a very nice addition to the lineup. The Cross Concept has been a popular cross bike for years because it’s one of very few that is ready to race as is. Bianchi has now added a higher level, called the Cross Concept Race, based on the same Scandium/Carbon frame of years past.

In addition to new paint, the bike’s group was refined nicely. Notable improvements: SRAM Force/Rival group (no cables hanging out front), FSA compact carbon crank, and a lighter handlebar/stem combination (Deda 100 stem, Newton bars).
