Reminds me of a constipated little old pooch desperately trying to pinch one off.

Wait until they put some off color deep rim carbon wheels on it. That will fix it right up.

And one of the better looking ones, IMO. http://velonews.competitor.com/2014...one_312215

Like it...bring back the Kelme colors. I am so tired of black and red and white. Oooh, look at me in flat black, I'm a ninja.

C.K., if that Belkin is the ugliest bike we are going to see all year, it will be a very good year! Why, that bike is little more than the extremes of Bianchi celeste/blues/greens over the decades on the same bike. (A celebration of the hundred years of Bianchi maybe? They have been around that long, haven't they?)

I'll take those Canyons any day over the Belkin Bianchis. At least the colors on that bike are complimentary. The celeste / bright green combo is just hideous.

Plus they are more aero.

Bianchis should just be celeste. This is pretty simple.....one of the few brands that does not need to color match the team jerseys.

I've noticed more and more carbon designs with that beefy front end tapering off to a more slender rear end.

got a friend that paints stuff (cars-m'cycles-bikes) and his saying has been for bout as long as I've known him "paint's like a T-shirt, don't like it change it" Haven't seen any bikes in years from the Big Boys that I can stand...some less worse then others for sure. Luckily for me lots of custom builders have really nice graphics and that is where my $$ go. Winterale

I know it is a team bike, but in that one view, there were seven, count them, seven 'Bianchi" - two on the down tube alone.

Yo, attention spans are getting shorter. Just as true in the design department as with kids in front of the TV. Yes it is a problem. But remember, the bike is just a symptom.

"Bianchis should just be celeste. This is pretty simple.....one of the few brands that does not need to color match the team jerseys." yup CK, I would have to agree. But someone will say "But it's Italian!!! Seriously, I think this bike may not be so bad, Cav's new Spez is just as ugly IMHO
Yo mike, seven is not that bad really, I just built up some LaPierre cross bike that had something like 16 logos?
