Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Where to order bikes online??

hey all,

i have been checking out bianchi's at local bike shops here in Washington DC...ive decided I want a veloce....problem is that Ive seen cheaper prices from shops listed online than around here locally.....Anyone know the websites of shops that do online bike purchasing/ shipping? Most places with better prices that Ive seen wont do mail/online orders....I know the size I need etc. And Ive test ridden several already, I just want to get one at a price I like...

I believe that bianchi does not allow there bikes to be sold online / mail order. If you do purchase online, you won’t be entitled to any warrantee support. This is true with a lot of manufactures.

Thats what I thought too, but I found a shop that does sell Bianchis online, they use some sort of factory authorized system to do so. The guy is calling me today to quote me a price...I know my size as Ive been measured so if the price is right I will spring for it.

That is SO untrue! I've actually found them to be very reputable.

orguasch,

I think you meant "reputable". "Refutable" made it sound like they weren't honest or something!

Steve

Refute:
1 : to prove wrong by argument or evidence : show to be false or erroneous
2 : to deny the truth or accuracy of <refuted the allegations>
- re·fut·able / adjective

Repute:
1 : enjoying good repute : held in esteem
