    55 Miles on the New Volpe and counting!

    Well, the weather has finally broken here in Northern Michigan, and just in time for my official entry into bike touring with the arrival of my new 2003 Bianchi Volpe. I 've just started my season with the arrival of the new bike four days ago and have logged about 55 miles so far.

    I also started my 2-3 days/week commute (19 miles round-trip) this morning with 15 mph headwinds and the threat of rain this afternoon--good thing I bought the fenders!

    Besides the stock bike, I've outfitted her with the following items:
    Terry Liberator gel saddle
    Planet Bike fenders
    Cateye computer
    Blackburn EXP rear rack
    Blackburn FL-1 lowrider front rack
    REI panniers, front & rear
    Vaude Road handlebar pack
    Specialized saddle wedge pack

    Still have a few things to follow up on w/ my LBS (gearing work) but all in all, I'm quite pleased with the ride--very comfortable and snappy!

    Pic attached for your review...

    Nice looking ride. Where in Northern Mi are you and who is your LBS? We are in Dearborn but have a cottage in Evart and do a lot of riding in the Cadilac area. Just picked up our two new Specialized Sequioa's, looking forward to our trips up north.
