Ciao everyone!

Well, seafoam and I did it today! We bought two brand new 2006 Bianchi Giro's. We were took hers out for a test this morning and this afternoon I picked em both up. This evening we didn't have much time but were able to put another 8 miles on them. We love the new rides!

Ahhh......identical bikes-- now Seafoam can get full credit for dropping you! Seriously, lovely bikes--that celeste color is an eternal classic. But, but, what if they get dusty or scatched or something!? Enjoy, 'cuz all those hills you two have been doing- you've earned them.
