Bianchi MTBs

Are they any good, particularly the "M.U.S.S."? I rarely see them mentioned. My LBS carries a lot of their stuff.

Yeah, they make sweet xc bikes and frames.



They have no long travel offerings so they are not a well recognized name with the all mountain or free ride crowd.

Me too! I'm selling my road bike b/c since I bought my Axis, I've ridden my road bike about 3x's. I love my Bianchi.

I will add that their mountain bike line-up is limited. They do make a nice bike.

The W.U.S.S. or any of their SS are pretty well spec'd and don't need any upgrades. Dirt Rag did a review on the G.U.S.S. (I think) maybe it was last year's model (don't remember the acronym). It was issue #114. See if you can find a copy at your LBS.
