SSCX Bianchi San Jose debut ride

Standard

First ride today of my newly completed Bianchi San Jose. James, Yukon Cornelius, and myself tested our new rides on gravel trails with some bonus singletrack. Aside from a few adjustments, and a flat tire on the San Jose, it was a pleasant 22 mile ride in teeth-chattering 20 degree temps. The Bianchi complete comes in at 21.8 lbs, and I cannot say enough positive things about my new ride, it feels light and responsive, it feels great!

Did I say complete? I carelessly forgot to install a rim strip on the back wheel.

The resulting flat at mile 12 was extra fun to change in the cold. CO2 cartridges don’t work quite as well when it’s only 20 degrees out.

Anyway, the singletrack rocked, the bike feels great, and the boys enjoyed the galettes.
