While touring the Pacific coast highway one summer, I made a stop in Monterrey, California, north of Big Sur for several days to stay with a friend. During my stay, I was watching the Tour de France on television. It was then I felt compelled to finally build a bike to race with, as I had been telling myself I would for a while.
I visited a local Mom & Pop in Monterrey who just so happened to be a Bianchi dealer. I marveled at the sheer beauty of the celeste blue beauties that filled the shop. While at the time I was unable to purchase a bike (as I was mid tour), I resolved to find a Bianchi dealer local to Vegas when I returned home.
I purchased my first Bianchi from my LBS, and have been in love with my full carbon steed ever since. I ride it for sport, I ride it for pleasure, I ride it for whichever occasion I may choose. It’s comfortable, yet fierce; aggressive, yet forgiving. The black & white paint job encapsulates, perfectly, the Yin-Yang nature of this Bianchi Sempre Pro. Riding this marvel of engineering is very much an existential experience.
2013 Bianchi Sempre Pro

Sram Red 10 speed chainset and Yaw derailleur
American Classic Full Carbon 40 Clincher Wheels
Conti Grand Prix 4000s tires, 25 mm: excellent handling and grip in the corners, as far as clincher tires go
I usually ride on a Prologo Saddles with carbon rails for maximum comfort.
