It's the bianchi via nirone 7 -- retails for about 1200-1300 and was on sale at Planet Bicycle in Folsom Ca, plus an extra discount from the owner brought it down to $950. I picked up some other stuff (bianchi helmet, gloves..etc) so we walked out spending $1300 total.
I picked up two sports that my wife has encouraged a lot to get me out of the house and back in shape. Road Biking & Paintballing
Here's a pic of me in my paintball gear ;P I'm the one on the right --- BTW how are people posting larger pics? Whenever I try doing a link it says the file is to big?

Also IMO, combining weight training with running or swimming gets you in the best shape. Cycling eh... It's a lot of coasting, and very low impact etc. Not my choice for fitness since cyclists to me have very disproportionate strength and fitness. Strong legs, mostly slow twitch muscles, weak upper body, weak core, weak back and low bone density, compared to other athletes. Eh, that's my impression at least.
- Which is why after I do my charity ride, I'm going to do more running and weight training than cycling, cycling is enjoyable, but not the body type, proportions and fitness I want.

Sold my Specialized Roubaix and moved to this Bianchi.
Stock right now.
But you're probably right, but that doesn't cover the odd physique cyclists have. So a more rounded exercise routine for me.
