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.)
