is my 1996 Bianchi Veloce.
bought it new and rode it "racer mode" (ie: low bars, minimalist
saddle, I even had a (gasp!) carbon fiber fork on it for a while.
I've done quite a number of centuries on it as well as a couple
B.R.A.N. rides. (Bike Ride Across Nebraska).But I was never totally
satisfied with the fit. I actually got away from riding for several
years because of the pain it was causing. Then I happened across
sites such as yours that showed touring bikes and "classically"
set-up bikes. I've been reborn. And I thank you. I using it for
daily commuting and hope to get back to extended rides again.
