Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I just got a road bike today.. well, I have a Jamis Aurora, but I consider it a 'touring' bike, even though technically it's still a road bike. I wanted something lighter and quicker feeling than the Aurora, and recently got a bonus check from work.. so....

I haven't had a chance to take good pics of my new bike, but here's a little something. It's a 2010 Bianchi Via Nirone 7, double chainring tiagra version. I got a deal on it since the 2011's are coming out soon. I don't think it was a 'great' deal, but after my test ride, I felt like I had to have it, and it was less than the new ones will be.

My beaters, AKA the clash of modern and vintage!



(yeah I know I need to trade my saddle for a white/red one ASAP)



The bianchi is around 20-21lbs now, the "schwinn" is a little heavier at around 22. Both have different columbus tubing sets.

I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the white/red scheme for 2010 but your bike looks great with the red Look pedals and Reynolds wheels. How do you like the new wheels so far?
