I am in search of a good quality bike that will suit my riding style (a little of everything, but mainly road and trails). I currently own a 2002 Trek 4500 mountain bike and a 2003 LeMond Alpe Du Huez road bike. The Fuji is about $250 cheaper than the Bianchi, but the Axis is a little better quality (I believe). I am not going to be entering any races soon, but I don't want to look back and tell myself that I should have chosen differently. The Axis is available at my LBS, while the Fuji would have to be ordered online. Is the extra expense of the B worth it?
