Details

Bianchi named its Milano as an ode to the Italian city of fashion, the Last Supper, and the Santa Maria del Grazie. With so much to see, you'd be lost without a bike like the Milano. With a lightweight aluminum frame, you've got a nimble ride to carry you between Da Vinci marvels and quaint cafes, with stylishness to rival the locals'. Bianchi's alloy wheels are lightweight and tough, and wrapped in Kenda rubber, so they've got the durability to take on all of your explorations. With 3 speeds tucked into the low-maintenance internally geared hub, you've got just the right amount of pedal power to make light of the terrain you'll encounter, whether the gradient steers up or down. An array of Bianchi alloy components cap off this machine, for the perfect exploration machine.

Comments:

I can only speak for California (poor guys in Minn.). But for the weather here, it is the perfect town bike. I own an Axxis cross bike, a Griffen Vulcan road bike, and the Milano. I love them all, but the Milano is more "Me". Responsive gears (the only exception on a six percent plus grade), solid bike that looks great. The eight speed internal is a plus. Perfect for milder weather. It is my main mode of transportation, and I drive a Subaru! That's saying something.

Not a winter bike

Bought one from the Hub 2-1/2 years ago on their recommendation, to use as a winter commuter. Worked great at first, shifted nicely even in the coldest weather. Then during the second winter gunk (snow, ice, salt?) started to get into the "sealed" hub, causing drag and a nasty grinding sound. This condition just got worse and worse. The Hub said I'd have to replace the whole back wheel, which was more than 1/2 the cost of the bike. So I stripped the bike and trashed it. Bottom line: a good commuter, but not built for Minnesota winters.

Comments:

I use this in many ways.I commute to a park and ride north of Minneapolis, Iput it on the bus rack, then bike it to the University where I work and sometimes deliver stuff around campus. I also use it on weekends for fun and erands. This bike is great for going the distance or just cruising around the town. The seat light is pretty useless so I sugest getting a better one if you plan on night driving. The chain guard is a big plus. And of course my biggest concern was the internal 8 speed hub. So far I have had no problems and it's been about a full year of constant biking, the only time I dont bike is if there is a snow storm. The hub is sturdy and well sealed so it stays intact nicely. I highly recomend one if you are the type of person that is going to use this as your new car, like I did.
