Reviews of Bianchi Iseo, 2009?
 
My girlfriend has her bike stolen today... I'm considering buying her a 2009 Bianchi Iseo. Has anyone here purchased/ridden/experienced the Iseo? If so, post!

I test rode the Iseo a few weeks ago when I was looking for a new bike for myself and I actually liked it a lot. The riding position was great, it felt quick, it looks great, all of the components seemed good (although I'm no expert) and it was actually my second choice bike. Ultimately I went with the Specialized Sirrus Sport mainly because it is a bit lighter than anything else I had ridden. Definitely a nice bike though.
