The Strada is based on Bianchi's classic double-butted steel frames and proven touring geometry for a ride that's equally at home running errands and cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway. The steel frame smooths less-than-perfect tarmac and makes long-distance rides a joy. A full set of rack and fender eyelets, a head's-up seating position, and flat handlebars allow you to roll the Strada however you see fit, whether it's light and fast for a weekend ride or loaded down with groceries. Shimano Claris drivetrain components provide reliably smooth shifts, a wide, hill-topping gear range, and incredibly easy use. Cantilever brakes are smooth and powerful, while the light aluminum wheels with street-tough Vittoria tires climb and descend with ease. Toss in ergo grips and a supportive saddle from Bianchi, and the Strada is a one-stop ride for cyclists of all stripes.
Bianchi's Lupo can go nearly anywhere; it's equally at home on pavement and gravel roads, is ready for long and short rides, and is more than capable of fully-loaded touring! Its rugged chromoly frameset accelerates, climbs, and corners like a dream while soaking up road vibrations for sweet comfort. The Lupo boasts an 18-speed Shimano drivetrain for cruising over hill and dale, while the cantilever brakes deliver serious stopping power and super mud and fender clearance. Plus, the reliable Alex 700c rims and fat 32mm-wide Kenda tires mean you cruise quickly and comfortably.
The Volpe melds the responsive handling of a road bike with the durability of a cyclocross bike. A variety of surfaces and conditions can be conquered thanks to generous tire clearance and proven components. Its lightweight chromoly frameset accelerates, climbs, and corners like a dream while soaking up road vibrations for sweet comfort. The Volpe features a relaxed head tube angle that is a bit slacker than a standard performance road bike, providing greater control in crosswinds. The Volpe’s chainstays have been stretched out while its bottom bracket has been lowered over a typical cyclocross model. Longer and lower equates to faster and more stable over rough terrain. Front and rear eyelets and bosses permit the use of fenders, racks, and panniers to tailor the Volpe to your riding requirements. The Volpe Classic boasts a 30-speed Shimano Tiagra drivetrain for cruising over hill and dale, while the cantilever brakes deliver serious stopping power and super mud and fender clearance. Plus, the reliable Alex 700c rims and 35mm-wide Kenda tires mean you'll cruise quickly and comfortably over nearly any surface. So whether you’re navigating your region’s rail trail network or working on your Super Randonneur achievement, the Volpe Classic can take you there.
Think of Bianchi's Eroica as a testament to yesteryear, but with some of the bells and whistles that make today pretty nice. Bianchi lays the foundation with a timeless, lugged steel frame with a ride so smooth, so confident, that every ride will make you wonder why all bikes aren't like this. The heralded features on this Italian-made art piece continue with Campangnolo Silver Vintage components, down tube shifters, and a gorgeous Bianchi crank. The cotton bar wrap under your fingertips will make you seriously question the merits of this new millennium, and Ambrosio Montreal tubulars will serve as your guffaw in the face of the clincher trend. The Eroica definitely qualifies as an "oldie-but-goodie," but don't take Bianchi's word for it—a ride on this baby will seal the deal all on its own.
