    thoughts on bianchi siss

    Thinking about picking one of these up. Will definitely test ride and see if it is for me but I wanted to hear some comments from those with more singlespeed knowledge. It will be my first ss. I was thinking about building one up but can't come close to the retail price (~$800). Any thoughts on the SISS or other singlespeeds in this price range- $500-$800? What does the SISS weigh? Finally, am I nuts thinking to put a suspension fork on this puppy? thanks

    I work at a Bianchi dealer and I looked at the Siss at the interbike show this year and was very impressed. It is about time that Bianchi made a STEEL singlespeed rather than their Easton Aluminum ones. The parts spec is well thought out and it is a cool looking ride altogether with the discs and all. I would recommend it. As far as the fork goes, I go from rigid to suspension forks on my Surly SS depending on the race/riding that I am doing. I really enjoy riding the rigid fork though, it is really not that bad.

    Your bike mechanic is wise beyond your wildest dreams.

    If you can't be good at one sport then you can be okay at three.
