To tell you the truth, I haven't taken it on an extended ride yet. I rode it for about 15 minutes in the area near the bike shop. (I can't really call it a LBS because it was about 35 miles from my house. It was the closest one that carried both Lemond and Bianchi.)Originally Posted by necromancer
For me it was the best of all the bikes I tested out. I tired the Cannondale Synapse (they didn't have the Synapes alloy in stock) the R800, the Specialized Alez and Roubaix (can't remember the exact models) at one bike shop, and some Lemonds, and some Felts at another shop before I picked this one (or did it pick me?). I wanted to try the Sarthe, but they didn't have any of the 06's in my size. It's not something I can explain, but it just felt right. It's a 55cm. I tried a Lemond in a 55 and it felt too big, but the 55 Bianchi felt perfect.
I'll be taking it to a club ride tomorrow. I'll give a report then.
