Bianchi Passion at On The Rivet

Cambridge, MD's On The Rivet loves a classic set up. Check these guys out when you're near the Eastern Shore. They also have restored to period Bianchi bicycles from the 60s/70s/80s on display. It's quite a museum just to see them! --posted via iPhone.

2010 B4P 1885 Chorus10

If actions speak louder than words, then my pulling the Chorus 10 kit off my carbon T-Cube is at the point of screaming a statement. Not that I'm trying to make a statement, what, ok, maybe I am for 2010. November 2009 I was in Nashville, TN visiting the boys at Gran Fondo Cycles, checking things out and getting in a nice 2 hour spin with Lynn. The loaner bike for that day was an older, Bianchi San Lorenzo . I fell in love with the San Lo that day and have not change my mind about wanting to get back on an aluminum road frame. If today's carbon rigs are the hottest fresh young things, then this San Lorenzo is the Cougar of the road bike world. I'll stop right there with any more parallels. Naturally the San Lorenzo is out of production and we do not have any 63cm scratch and dents kicking around in the warehouse so I ordered up a 2010 B4P 1885 in a 63cm. With their identical geometry to the 2008 B4P T-Cube in my stable, the parts swap should be painless. Hopefully... (Ha
