|What tubing is used in Bianchi SL Chromo Lite frame? Like whatsused in a Bianchi Veloce or a Campione.
Bianchi claims its some great stuff but what is it really?

|It's a proprietary tubeset, built by Dedaccai. It's a good quality, relatively light steel tubeset, probably along the lines of 853 without the fancy Reynolds brand name. Is it the best steel tubeset in the world? No. Is it a high-quality Chro-mo? Yes.|

|I wondering because the Vigorelli and Imola which are higher in the Bianchi line have Reynolds 631 double-butted chrome-moly main triangle and Reynolds 525 chrome-moly rear triangle. So Veloce frame is probably similar to those frames. Maybe a step down.
Like Reynolds 525 or Columbus Thron?

|My main ride is a Bianchi 'crosser with the same Bianchi Chromo Lite tubeset. A nice comfortable steel ride. It is every bit as good as my Reynolds 853 Gunnar.
Disclaimer-I am not a weight weenie and like to ride all day on all surfaces. Steel is real.
