    My new Bianchi 2009 928 Mono-Q - Advice needed!

    Hi all,
    I just took delivery of a NOS 2009 Bianchi 928 Carbon Frame in Celeste.

    I will post a link shortly.

    It has no headset fitted and I need help to work out what kind of headset I need to buy. I can see that the fork will need a crown race and the head tube has cups on each end.

    Does anyone have a model number and/or brand that will fit this frame? FSA or Campagnolo?

    Thanks for any help.

    Rob

    Sydney AU

    Thanks mate. I would have preferred it in white but got a crazy deal and couldn't pass it up.

    hey mate... did you purchase this on eBay? and i assume your use of "mate" means you're 'strayen?

    looking at the bianchi website the 2009 mono q's came stock with a FSA Orbit CE Plus headset, yet any integrated headset should work
    Orbit CE Plus

    Thanks. I'll be transferring most of the components from my old bike. A mix of Sram Red and Force with new Carbon 3T bars and seat post.

    Could be a few weeks till I get the correct headset, front derailleur clamp, seat clamp, seat post etc.

    The seller on ebay.com.au has already sold 6 or 7 of these and still has a 55 in celeste listed.

    I want a 53 in white, but alas not be.

    Nice job. I initially thought that it could be a scam but was pleasantly surprised when it showed up.

    I've got a mix of Sram Red and Force, 3T Team stem, bars and Seatpost. Selle Italia SLR Team in white . Wheels are Dura Ace C24 7900s and I have a PowerTap wheel as well.

    And you?

    i too was concerned yet it turned out ok, right?!

    i can't decide between record or super record, yet leaning towards record as i can't justify the cost for super record (nor need, yet i don't need record either). and thinking either a pair of eurus or neutrons... similar bar/stem yet thinking pro not team as i don't want a carbon combination.

    did you get your headset sorted?
