Got to love an amusing lost-in-translation type translation.

But this one is a ripper. No translation required, this is a straight cut-and-paste from the Bianchi website.

Just looking for information on the Bianchi Methanol MTB - and this is what they've got:

Bianchi Methanol SL. To win all the challenges on any grounds. Always. Join tradition and vanguard is not an easy job. But if this mix becomes reality, the result could touch the excellence. With this philosophy Bianchi presents Methanol SL, the new top range bicycle among the mountain bikes for competition. Two years of research and development and one of test on dirt patches trying different technical solutions, thanks to the collaboration of team TX Active-Bianchi, guarantee to Methanol SL the certainty to answer to the most extreme requirements.

Maximum lightweight, extreme rigidity and excellent performances: here are the answers of Bianchi Methanol SL to the bikers who want be always at the top. This frame, in its final version, was used by Leonardo Paez in World Cup XCO races and taken to the success in the "Internazionali d’Italia" and in the granfondo "100 km dei Forti" and "Cimbri".


Great bike, not sure about the sales pitch.
