Bianchi's Torino is a fun get-around-town bike that lets you feel the wind in your face. Thanks to the aluminum frame and 700c wheels, it's light, nimble, and perfect for city riding or any other type of cycling you have in mind. Plus, you'll love the 24-speed Shimano drivetrain that makes climbing easy, the powerful linear-pull brakes, and the host of choice Bianchi components that make every ride a joy.

This is a great handling bike and I like it for the most part. Componants that are featured on the website are nothing like the actual production model. The handlebar is a comfort bar which I was disapointed by as I wanted a flat bar. One of the other common complaints is the pedals which are really poor quality. They should simply sell the bike without them... Customer service from Bianchi in the US is not very good as well. I think Trek backs their products and has a wider range of bikes for every price point.
I usually just ride around the city via the bike paths along the East river and along the Hudson and thru Central Park. I really can't recommend this bike highly enough. It works great in this environment, although I probably wouldn't venture too far off road with the slim tires. It does everything else extremely well, quick shifts, powerful brakes (which you need in the city) and a light frame, comfortable seat and great handle bar position with great grips. My overall score of this bike is a 9.5
