A Violation of the Most Sacred Norm in Cycling

It has been announced that Team Belkin will be riding Bianchi Oltre XR.2 frames this coming season, but with Shimano components. The cycling gods will be outraged at the mixture of a classic Italian frame and Japanese components. Bianchis (of all bikes) should only ever be ridden with Campagnolo components.

The recently folded Dutch squad Vacansoleil also rode Bianchis with Shimano drive trains, and look what happened to them!

  1. Ahh, but their predecessor's, Rabobank, equipped their Colnagos with Dura Ace and they were quite nippy - it must have been the Shimano!
