Paul Clarkwrote a review of Bianchi Oltre XR4 Disc Super Record 12 Complete Road Bike on May 13, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got a chance to take this for a rip last week, and now I truly in awe. I was excited to ride a Bianchi again after riding Pinarello, Trek, Specialized and Orbeas. The Bianchi is a one of a kind breed. I jumped on and instantly felt centered, ready to charge descents and corners, but also noticeably more comfortable than I expected... The speed is insane, the components insane, but you know that. What struck me most was the comfort with speed. Very confident, very refined. VERY derivable, This isnt a Mclaren you only take to the track, this is the Porsche 911Turbo you can drive comfortably or as fast as the Mclaren, and still have the comforts of useable seats, functional AC, and even (gasp) a sick stereo. This bike is all that. I am 5'10" medium flexibility, and the 55cm was perfect. I run a 75cm seat height and had normal seat to bar drop, nothing extreme.
