You’ve found a thoroughbred with some serious speed in Bianchi’s Sempre Pro Ultegra—it's ready to fly right out of the gate! The carbon monocoque frame delivers a stiff, responsive ride, as well as an oversize down tube, bottom bracket and chainstays to maximize power transfer. This speed-hungry frame is wed to an ultra-lightweight tapered carbon fork that gives you sure, precise handling, whether you’re flying down mountains, or railing through the corners of a local crit. Plus, you’ll love the lightweight, stiff Fulcrum 7 wheels that accelerate with the flick of a pedal, and the smooth-shifting FSA/Shimano Ultegra drivetrain that lets you deftly find the right gear precisely when you need it.

After trying to find a "local" dealer for a Bianchi, had to settle for the "big box" store avenue.I wanted a good street/road bike for riding and thought or tried to go the non standard fare of Specialized, Trek, etc.Saw this bike online and with the title of Pro Ultegra, thought great, a nice, non pretentious bike from a long history equipped with good components.Spent some time hunting this down and in Denver Metro found one of this particular model in the size that I needed-57Stopped in at the store-first customer in the door and immediately found the machine in the midst of others. Hard to get to and annoyingly padlocked with cables and locks, INSIDE the showroom! After searching a salesperson, we got the bike out to take a look. Asked about the machine, components- yes its the Ultegra model of the line. Naturally I assumed that is exactly what it was.During the "fitting process, while bike was being set up I started seeing strange things. The cables were what looked liked thick, cheap white ones that didn't bear any resemblance to what my other Ultegra bike, Cervelo, had. Asked the sales guy-no you aren't wrong these are not Ultegra. Hmm. What about the brakes- pads, housing, calipers - were all different and I had no idea what they actually were. Aren't these Ultegra? Well, no. Is the crankset Ultegra- not quite....Well, what in the name of Ultegra is Ultegra? Ah, the gearlevers and cassette......What do you expect at this price, was the question to me!An Ultegra bike! This mentality did not lend me to a purchase so having wasted a morning, 150 miles of driving and a bad taste, stick to the known brands, your local shop and save the indifferent hassle by reading the fine print. My stupidity in expecting to believe what I presumed was something far from realityBottom line, Bianchi doesn't want in this case to sell a bike that lives up to its description, albeit the name, which one might contend, reasonably, to be a departure from reality......
