    Strengths:    excellent frame worthy of years of component upgrades, quality welds, light, stiff but comfortable, responsive, climbs well and it's a Bianchi :)

    Weaknesses:    if used for racing - fork, rims & components. If used for daily commute - it's one sweet bike.

    Bottom Line:   
    I'm an older year round commuter in the Chicagoland area. (yes, even in winter...) I am not a racer or poser. This is now my everyday commuter bike and weekend warrior bike. The bike's geometry makes it extremely comfortable on long rides and handles the trails with agility. I only had my Bianchi for a couple thousand miles so far, but I enjoyed every mile on it. This bike is extremely versatile and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys riding a quality bike.

    Strengths:    Good frame, good wheels (except for tyres)

    Weaknesses:    Poor fork, low quality v-brakes and tyres very very heavy

    Bottom Line:   
    It's a good honest bike for the price, but as you become more agressive on trails I suggest replacing the fork with one that has a lockout and the brakes with more powerful ones.
    The frame is an aluminium one, quite light for the price and it seems strong.
    The crankset is a Detai, it's quite heavy (maybe replace with a Shimano LX if you can), front derailleur a Shimano C050, very basic but durable.
    I made up to now 1300 km on this bike, and - for the price paid - it seems a good bike for beginners like me.
