I had to take the Randonee back because of the dropped bars. I went on a bike run this morning and I was talking to a guy and I told him what had happened and he metioned the Bianchi Strada.It's got flat handlebars and I could put the stem riser on them to raise them up if need be.I was concerned about the gearing as well ( 28/38/48) seemed a little high.Can anybody give me any information on this bike. It's a steel bike with CF forks.Thanks for any information,George
