I've been looking at several Bianchis and Cannondales for my first road bike, and then I ran into the Bottecchia 8avio. It's definitely a looker, and the components (from what I can tell) are pretty good for the price. I can't post links being new to this website, but to get to the bike's page on the website you go to bottecchia .com, choose reparto corse on the frontpage, go to the "race" tab and then it's on the left.
On the Allestimenti tab near the bottom, you have to hit next twice until you get to the veloce gear version
I'm looking to buy it from an Italian bike shop for 1250 euros (including shipping) which also includes tax that I can have removed (it's around 10-15%) being in the United States. Does anyone have any insight on the brand? I love the bike but I'm concerned about the build quality of the full carbon frame. I've heard things about some Bottecchia USA rebranded crapbikes, and i'm pretty sure this isn't it.
Help is appreciated! (before I make a stupid decision)
