I'm really pleased with this bike. I would have preferred a Bianchi to be in the classic celeste colour, but the all-chrome frame looks great. Unlike other Italian bike frames I've had, the chrome plating seems strong and resistant to rust.
I made a few changes to make the bike slightly more comfortable on longer rides, ( seat & bars ) keeping the original parts in case I ever want to change it back. I also occasionally use short mudguards when the weather is wet.
A few people ( random pedestrians and proper cyclists ) have commented on what a nice looking bike I have!
