Not heard anything about them to be honest, never seen a review nor a rider on one & we have a Bianchi dealer in town, although he does specialise in roadbikes...

I know a number of people who sware by them in Italy. Road bike wise they are excellent so dont see why their mountain bikes would be any different.

I beg to differ, just because they can build a good road bike, doesn't mean they can build a good mountain bike.

Remember Bianchi is like an Italian Raleigh - they do all kinds of bikes from crap to great.

:lol: Bit small isn't it....Through the Eno cranks shot of the Columbus Max logo on my frame :roll:

Was looking at a Bianchi Rita 29er singlespeed...but the bits on it were just OK and I think I can be patient and do better.
