Eye Candy for Cyclists

Now that I live in Bloomington, I've been thinking of buying a super-light bike for the hills. The current leading contender (although not on price) is this gorgeous Bianchi Oltre Nero. With Campy Chorus 11-speed, HED Ardennes wheels, and Speedplay pedals, total weight would be just over 14 pounds. Bianchi, for those who don't know, is the world's oldest bike maker in continual existence, founded in 1885 in Milan. My trusty 2001 Bianchi XL Boron still is a lot of fun to ride, and gets me kudos from mechanics and steel-is-real aficionados.
