Anyone have experience with one of these? Also, any recommendations on steel hardtails is most appreciated. Thanks a lot!
No direct experience but I'm drooling over the specs. In regards to steel hardtails I've got a '99 Hardrock that I fully expect to out live my aluminum full susser
Bianchi steel is SWEET. One of the guys I used to work with has something of a 99? vintage, with some SRAM parts and a Rockshox race fork (forget which model exactly). Anyways nothing on the bike is stupid light, or really even light for that matter, and it weighs in at under 23lbs w/ pedals in a 17".

I'm asking myself this same question 'cause I'm looking for a 2nd bike for racing. I did the looking for ya! Here's the e-mail I got from a local bike shop that seems to specialize in lotsa steel....
The Dragon is a nice tube set and a solid bike. You canít beat the parts spec that youíll get for your money on a Jamis. We do not have any Dragons in stock at the moment, but last I checked they were available.
The Rocky Mountain is a little nicer craftsmanship, and I like the geometry better. I think that Blizzards are sold out for the year.
I would also look at Gunnar. We have a 17.5 Gunnar Rockhound built up for test ride.
Also, Check out the Kona Explosif, which we have in stock as a frame alone.
Finally, check out the Bianchi Danali, which we also have in stock.

I help out at a shop that deals in Bianchi's. The Denali is a great bike, lightweight hardtail and respectfully priced for what components come on it.
You can't go wrong with it.
