    Feels pretty much the same to me as carbon bikes, I've had carbon bikes before and for this average rider getting some sun and some miles here and there this is just fine. I probably will never buy carbon again.
    I love my 2.1, super smooth yet responsive, best upgrade was new tires and Bontrager RL wheels, that made a difference along with a saddle more suited for me.

    Here's a picture of the Bianchi Infinito, it's being worked on at the moment... frame and rear derailleur were damaged. Should be replaced and up-and-running soon.
    My bike stand was made out of spare parts I had lying around the house from a shelf.
    I was going so slow up that climb I was scared I was going to roll backwards, good thing I was on the brakes the whole time!

    I would get rid of the reflectors and get some lights instead. Though I think you posted you commute a bit, so probably is on your list to do already.

    I usually use a hybrid bike for commuting. I put the rear reflectors on the front to balance out the wheel as a quick temp fix. I was afraid the single reflector would make the wheel wobble a bit at high speeds.

    Itd be one thing if they were 20$ craigslist bikes but all those are actually really nice!

    Nice collection! How is that Vigorelli? I love the look of those 2012's and thought it would be a great all-purpose bike.

    Hey dmc,

    My Super Six, Litespeed and Bianchi are all new for this riding season. With the weather still crummy most of the time I've only gotten one ride in on each of them. Only done a short 30 miler on the Vigorelli, the ride is real smooth. Am expecting it and the Litespeed to be excellent on long 70-100 miles rides, maybe less fatiguing than carbon. I chose the 2012 over the 2013 because of the black Bianchi panels.

    And yes, you can never have enough bikes. n + 1 is my favorite algebraic formula.

    I like it. It's a nice bike. Looks like a relaxed comfy ride to me. Entry level bikes are the best

    So my Bianchi got fixed ... it now has a different color frame. I think it looks a bit odd... but I'm not complaining with the Celeste color.

    I was going so slow up that climb I was scared I was going to roll backwards, good thing I was on the brakes the whole time!

    Infantile girly colors? I'd be embarrassed to ride a bike that color. They didn't have the red anymore?

    I'd pay another $200 somewhere to have it repainted matte black or do it myself.

    Celeste is the only correct colour for a Bianchi.

    ....yes I do know that they come in other colours

    Just added a more comfortable ride today, much more agreeable to my back. 12 Synapse 6 Carbon.

    I've been told this many many times. Lol -- To an extent I agree.

    It's just the red bits that make it look odd. Ditch them, quick. And I think black tires would also bring it more together. The historic celeste color scheme will always be better on any frame labeled Bianchi. That's just how it is.

    haven't been riding for 10+ years and recently trying to get back as a healthy habit. started out with a Sirrus Expert carbon but after a month i realized i want to get rid of the flat. luckily the bike shop was kind enough to take the Sirrus back and do a straight swap on a Roubaix Elite rival with no extra charge. i feel like a lucky rider =)
