I fell in love with celeste green Bianchis the moment I saw them for the first time! I have ridden mountain bikes since my early childhood and have only recently bought myself a real road bike. I have simply got tired of riding a heavy bike, since most of my riding is done on flat paved roads and I have always wondered what it would be like to try a lighter bike with narrow tires and go as fast as people who kept overtaking me at very high speed on their road bikes. I took an instant liking to steel road bikes as apposed to aluminum or carbon ones. Steel road bikes are so elegant and simple and these two features are the ones the swayed me away from buying anything else. Since I bought my Bianchi Caurus 945 two months ago I have put a total of 964 km. I also did my first century ( actually 163,5 km) within a month of buying my bike!
