    Bianchi Bicycle Club

    So... If one registers for the Bianchisti Club at http://www.bianchi.com/ all they get is a periodic newsletter, right? There is no other advantage in registering such as becoming member of a Bianchi message forum or being able to download a user's manual, right?
    Or am I missing something?

    At the end, it says that more is coming soon.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Thanks for your reply. I'll be patient and wait for more, although I am really surprised that a company like Bianchi does not yet have a better online presence...
    (cyclist2000: Your "my bike photos" link does not seem to work for me.)

    In the meantime, does anyone know if an owner's manual (.pdf format) for a 2009 Bianchi Torino is available anywhere online? (Bought bike in the USA through Craigslist.com!)

    I just tried the link and it takes me to the flickr account. Try pasting this in your browser http://www.flickr.com/photos/busterc...7623483647522/

    I still cannot access the "my bike photos" link.

    Owner's Manual?

    Unfortunately, there really aren't "owner's manuals" for bikes any longer; not in the traditional sense.

    The manual is actually a collection of technical data sheets for each of your component parts, which are available for download at the component manufacturer's web sites. Look up the part numbers for each component and search for tech data.

    Do you have a specific question about the bike?

    No, I do not have any questions at this time. I was just trying to be proactive and secure a copy of the owner's manual just in case.
    But thanks for having clarified the issue to me.
