i know how to make that bianchi faster.... put campagnolo on it..
Or better still, put a faster rider on it!
Once you choose from Shimano vs Campag, there is no going back. It would be a VERY expensive hobby to run wheels for different gruppos!
But think about it: my 'Made in Italy'* frame is actually made in Taiwan. Why not a Japanese groupset? That's a more regionally-sympathetic choice. I guess I need to address the fact that my wheels are French....
genius, that Casati may or may not be made in Italy. There is a chance that a tube-tube frame like that is actually made there, although I have no idea why that would be so. Colnago, for example have now moved all of their CF frame production to the far east. Even the great US stalwart Cannondale is now gone to the Orient.
As long as one buys from reputable manufacturers, there's no need to have an enhanced fear of inferior quality. Taiwan is the best in the world when it comes to making CF frames.
* In Italy this phrase means that the majority of the added value is inherent to whatever activity occurs in Italy. So, say you clear-coat a Taiwanese frame in Milan. Well, that spray-painter chap just might happen to earn $1,000/hr
