    New bike: Bianchi Milano

    I finally have my bike!!! I bought a bianchi milano. I had to order 19'' frame, the 16.5 was just a tad on the small size. I got the new 2008 model. It is great. There is one MAJOR thing I was disappointed with in the new model. The red stitched leather hand grips were changed to ugly grey and black rubbery ones. It rides sooo smooth. I was able to take it on a 3 mile ride tonight. Anyway here are some pics, cause that's all anyone wants to see anyway.

    Beautiful. If you use a computer much, you will come to appreciate those grips. They position your hands so as not to put as much strain on the same places typing on computers strain.

    My wife has the same bike.

    Honestly, those new grips are a nice upgrade. The original red ones are cool looking, but the ones you got are anatomically more comfortable/supportive.
