I've got a 2003 and it's a dream. Good stiff cro-moly frame, decent wheelset. Fun to ride, very nimble. Handlebars aren't so great. All in all, for the price it's a wonderful bike. However, you might want to check out the Fuji Track. It's in the same price range I believe.

Thanks, Harry

The Trouble with the Fuji is, it doesn't have 'Bianchi' written on it...;)

They are possibly even made in the same facility though.

True, maybe, but the forks and the rear brake bridges are different -- the Fuji has an RBB that can accept a brake and has guard clearances front and rear -- at least it does in the UK. The Bianchi also *looks* a little meatier (but maybe it's just the chrome reflecting and dazzling me...) and to my eyes, the Bianchi's wheelset looks a little better...
