    I did not know Bianchi had all these new SS/FG bikes

    Where have I been?

    http://bianchiusa.com/07_roger.html

    http://bianchiusa.com/07_b4p_fremont.html

    http://bianchiusa.com/07_lewis.html

    http://bianchiusa.com/07_rita.html

    I guess the mountain ones are replacements for the P.U.S.S and G.U.S.S but what about the first two, which by the way have my all time favorite gearing 48x17.

    I'm in love
    A wild man once explained to me how bicycles came from sailboats.

    Would I buy it? No, but the Fremont makes a lot of sense for the 99.9999% of cyclists who may be interested in the benefits of fixed gear riding but:
    1. don't ride on the track (or even live within hundreds of miles of one)
    2. don't deify messengers
    3. aren't interested in finding obscure parts for vintage conversions

    I like it. It seems to fit the bill for my quest for a 'roadie' fixed gear. I ride a conversion I love, but it needs a modern friend.
    Is the hub flip ready for a 15t cog fixed?

    I'm trying to not see a Roger in person because I know the second I see one I'm going to sell a kidney and buy one.

    Could one have a flip flop rear built for the Roger with discs on each side?

    all these new bikes, but the san jose still rules on or off road with just a tire change. even after you thrown in an extra $100 for a double fixed rear wheel, it's still the better value

    What's up with the el-cheapo conponents on the fremont...those levers look like they're circa 1989! and the mixture of black and silver components makes it look like somebody cobbled together a fixie conversion!! At least none of their new bikes come with a rattlecan paintjob or "flip n chop" bars

    I guess it was a good thing Sky Yeager left as head designer of Bianchi.

    I think her only serious contributions were white panel champion stickers(Yay!) and animal print saddles(WTF?).

    Those and the 100 percent chick designed stickers, which I actually don't mind for some reason. My 3 sisters love that I'm riding a "baby green" bike with a little chick on the bottom of the down tube.

    The Fremont is nice. Lewis is just a new GUSS or MUSS or whatever from what I can tell... Rita is their answer to the Rig (everybody has a 29'er SS this year, it seems).
