So this summer I'm thinking about doing a tour across Colorado, my home state. I'm looking around on the internet for various resources on touring. You know those little ads that pop up based on the content of web pages you're visiting, e.g. the ones that come with Kazaa or whatnot? I'm browsing the net for touring information and they come up with "Divorce support resources". Trying to say something? Not encouraging.
I am not fazed. Anyone have any experience with the Bianchi Volpe and/or a good divorce lawyer?

I've heard some good things about the volpe, looks like a nice bike. I don't believe bianchi makes a bad bike. I know a good divorce attorney but he is in california so not sure that will help you.

I'm picking up my new Volpe this afternoon.
The 2003 model has a threadless headset; if you're not a fan of these, look for last year's model.
The gearing on this bike needs a little work; mine came with a 30/42/52 crankset and an 11-32 cassette. I'm planning on swapping the 30-tooth for a 28 and maybe even going to a 12-34 cassette, depending on how much carbon I end up blowing out on the hills.
But for the money (~$850 at my LBS) you get a cro-mo frame with a good reputation, decent Shimano components (albeit not great), beefy wheels/spokes, and clipless pedals.
I was amazed that Bianchi sells a red bike with blue handlebar tape, though!
Can't help with divorce lawyers as I'm still happily married!
that is exactly what I did. My small is 28 up front, and a 12-34 Megarange out back. Works well, the lowest gear is not quite low enough for heavy loads up steep grades. But it's low enough for most.
