Bianchi B4P Mono-Q SRAM Red

Era Ski & Bike in Lancaster, Pennsylvania handles a lot of high end frames/custom builds. Todd and Greg at Era have been building what the discerning cyclists needs, long before others have jumped on the high end road bike bandwagon.

The other week, I popped in to say hello to Greg, see how their ski season is ramping up and drop off a stack of catalogs/literature. Greg was upstairs in Era's showroom discussing with a customer, her options regarding her next bike fit and custom build. Greg's moto is--if you're going to spend at least $3k for a bike, a custom fit/build is your best option.

Nestled comfortably amongst their niche' brands are Bianchi Bicycles. 2009 brought dealers the B4P Mono-Q road bike. This bike falls in that $3k bracket and Greg and Todd are putting their own stamp on this model.



The Mono-Q is a race ready bike with it's stock Ultegra SL groupo and Mavic wheel set. Era has add a bit of their own flavor and stripped and flipped the bike into a SRAM Red/Easton/Fizik equipped bike.


This bike boasts a full SRAM Red groupo and Easton EA90 Aero wheel set and tips the scales at just over 16 lbs for the 57cm as shown.

This is a taste of what Era Ski & Bike can offer the Bianchi customer; stock or custom. Make mine a 61cm and consider me sold!
