Ditto. Took me a second to figure out that you meant "one hand position." Out of curiosity, what were the other bikes you tested?

Two or three other Bianchi models, including the 2012 Via Nirone 7, which was terrific but would only take a seatpost rack; a couple of Giants (Defy and Trinity, both amazing but much pricier and no service plan at that shop); and a Surly Long Haul.

looks cool to me. that is a good, versatile road set-up.

i like those steel bianchis a lot - you don't see them much in shops here now (apart from the pista). they had a singlespeed CX bike out that was about a year before CX fever really hit it big here.

I took this out last night for an 8-mile spin just to get more used to it. Loving it so far, though I have not ridden a bike with drop handlebars in over a decade so there's a lot to get used to. (Esp. when coming out of the saddle for a climb.) At one point when I had a long stretch of open road, I really opened up, and assumed I had topped out only to find I had two more gears at hand. I was like o_O. (I checked the Cyclemeter app on my phone afterwards, and I had been going 26mph on that stretch.)
