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