Azzurri Forza or Bianchi B4P Sempre Pro - Which One?

Postby ggoosen » Tue Jan 14, 2014 2:55 pm

Hi All..

New to the forum, but had a browse through and there is some great info on here.

I found 2 specials on line for the Azzurri Forza and Bianchi B4P

Both run Ultegra Di2. And are both the same price?

Which would you get?

I've heard that Bianchi still have a lot to do - in house - with their frames. Whether that is factual, or a misnomer, I'm not sure - but I love the Celeste colour scheme and the Italiano heritage.

I would buy the Azzurri.
Latest model groupset, frame has more up to date features (tapered headtube), better wheels and a kilo lighter.

Good points !

Next question would be. Do I spend the 1000 extra to get the di2 or do I take the cheaper model with the normal ultegra group set?

Wouldnt be surprised if these two came out of the same taiwanese factory because its only the real high end stuff coming out of italy from bianchi now days.

And yeah compelling argument to go the half price azzurri with normal ultegra. Think I have seen dowm as little as $1250 which is a bargain imo.

(Cont) for the old 10 speed ultegra so 2000 for the new 11 speed sounds about right.
