This little girl followed me home. http://www.bianchiusa.com/07_volpe.html
I have read many threads with posters saying good things about this bike. I had looked at the webpage and devoured the specs, and although I have spent the last couple of weeks touring the local bikesops testriding several makes and models I just never saw any Bianchi's other than the ritzy road bikes. This morning while at the LBS I innocently asked why they don't have the Volpe. The kid looks at me like and comments "Oh I guess you haven't been in before" walks me over to the bikes hanging in the front window and asks me what size I am interested in.
To make a very long story short. On my way home from work today I picked her up. I had them change the saddle, put on some wider drops and install a longer stem for me. My credit card took a pretty heavy whack but I'm okay with that.
Currently it is raining cats and dogs so hopefully tomorrow morning I will be able to give my first riding review and also time my first TT for the Jumbo Challenge.
