Always wanted a Bianchi. My first road bike in 20 years. Rode a metric century the day after buying it. Probably my longest ride ever. Mainly used as a weight loss/fitness ride. Gets a lot of use on local bike trails. Mostly paved, but also some dirt. The fork braze ons are stock. They shouldn't be. This fork has them. The handlebars are a bit crowded. Nothing too extreme. Looks worse than it feels. Actually did most of the modifications before seeing the modified Bianchi in the Rivendell Reader. I love the color. Red makes a great contrast. The bags don't match. The components are black. I'm satisfied with the choices. It's my bike. The way I like it.

Modifications include:
Salsa stem
Cane Creek interruptor brakes
Bianchi seatpost (replaced the sprung post)
Brooks B-17
MKS Promenade pedals, with toe clips and straps
SKS fenders
Nitto rear rack stainless steel water bottle cages
stem mounted bell
Berthoud handlebar bag
Vittoria Randonneur tires 700x32c
