Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

bianchi san jose: flat bar, pro or int'l?

hello all, i have recently inquired, via e-mail, to my fabs (far away bike shop) re the saint joe. he says i

have a choice of the '09 flat bar, '09 pro or a '08 international.


does anyone know how these may differ? the flat bar is obvious; but are these similar in gearing, stock

wheels/tires, paint color etc? i searched the interweb and i got nothing. grassy ass, hornytoad

From here:
http://commutebybike.com/2008/08/22/...ikes-for-2009/
Flat bar:

"The San Jose, with its cyclocross style steel frame and fork, 70032 tires, and cantilever brakes, is good for city riding on bumpy, potholed streets. Bianchi will also have the “San Jose Pro,” which is the fancy trim version and features a carbon fiber fork, Fizik Pave saddle, Deda Big Piega handelbar and Big Logo stem, and fenders."

the 'pro' w/ fenders and carbon fork = looks like my next bike.

is this an entry-level fork, i assume. can anyone advise as to which fork this may be or, in general, the ride of bianchi carbon forks?

thanks sneaky viking.
