Product Details

2015 Bianchi Milano

Imagine pedaling through picturesque city streets to meet friends at a local shop or café—with Bianchi’s Milano, not only will you look great on arrival, but you’ll love how effortlessly smooth the ride is. The aluminum frame is lightweight and keeps you comfortably upright so you can take in the scenery, while the 700c wheels roll quickly and easily down the street or bike path. With 8 speeds, you can tackle virtually any hill, especially knowing your powerful linear-pull brakes will keep you firmly in control on the way back down. Plus, the stylish matching fenders and chainguard keep you clean and dry, so you remain comfortable your entire ride and look good when you’re done.

    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.
