@mktng: Not from the same factory. Bianchi has their frames built in Taiwan, which IS the same factory that the majority of frames are being made. Cinelli has their frames made in a Columbus specific factory in China, apart from their original factory in Milan, Italy. Much smaller factory since it is Columbus specific. Columbus airplane tubing is a more expensive material compared to 6061 or other branded 7000 series aluminum, which both come from Taiwan. There is a difference there.

Anyway, I've had both frames and I'll definitely say that the mash was more stiff. Better construction and overall quality. Hope this helps!
