    Bianchi Fremont v. Paddy Wagon

    Hey I was just wondering about how these two bikes compare and what you would recommend? Ive seen previous posts about the paddy wagon, but none about the Fremont. Any information would be awesome.

    The frame is Bianchi designed double butted 7005 aluminum with rear entry track dropouts and a carbon fiber front fork. The crankset is an aluminum alloy 48t Sugino XD with a 17t x 3/32" fixed cog in the rear. The hub flip flops so you can add an optional single speed freewheel to the other side (see options below). Color is gloss black.
    28h Alex Solo aluminum rims, Continental UltraSport 700 x 23c clincher tires, alloy seatpost, alloy Bianchi bar and stem, Bianchi Velo saddle, LeeChi Dual-Pivot brakes. $700



    Hmmmmm. Looks and sounds like the aluminum version of the San Jose. But with narrower street tires and LeeChi ?? brakes. I went with the San Jose.

    I test rode a bianchi fremont. It is a very light and beautiful, but has an integrated headset which is disliked by many. The bike itself has a better ride then say a giant bowery I once rode, but it's still not as nice as steal. I wanted a paddy wagon but had no luck getting one in my size, and I bought a motobecane messenger via bikes direct.com. If weight and/or an aluminum frame was my choice, I would choose the fremont. Jamis has the under 17 pound steal sputnik,which I kinda wish I had the nerve to buy and hope it fit me right.

    I went ahead and bought it !! It is quite amazing, rode better than the bowery and paddy wagon by far.
