This is mostly for the taller folks here. I've been looking for a new bike because I've outgrown my Bikes Direct bike. I shopped like crazy at a bunch of different dealers trying to find a bike to replace my HEAVY 64cm steel bike was wasn't having any luck. I left info with several dealers to call me if anything large came in. The other day a Bianchi Dealer called and said that he had a Via Nirone 7 105 in a 63cm and that he wanted me to test ride it. I did and loved it. It was almost a perfect fit right out of the box. For the tall ones among us. I haven't been this comfortable on a bike in a long time. I took it on a ten mile test ride, killed a couple of hills with it and took it home. I did a 40 mile ride last night and commuted on it this morning with a 20 pound back pack and didn't have and hand pain what so ever. It's a compact double instead of a triple which will take some getting used to but the weigh difference is incredible. I went from a 35 to a 24 pound bike with full water bottles. I have nothing against Bikes Direct. I got what I paid for and it is still a great bike just heavy as all get out. Anyhow if this bike is in your price range you may want to see if your dealer has one in a 63 and test ride it.
