Strengths:    Same frame has the bianchi king bee. Good forks for the price. It has disk brakes!!!!!!!!

Weaknesses:    Does nat have all the same components has the king bee. ( I changed a lot of them and pretty much got a king bee.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for the price, worth a lot more than Bianchi sells it for. Just put better components on it and it will be a top of the line Hardtail MT. Bike.

Date Reviewed: February 22, 2007

Strengths:    2006 Frame is a tank and can handle nearly anything

Weaknesses:    Nonw! This is on tough machine. Though I suppose if you're picky and want a really light weight bike, with just its stock parts it may be a bit heavy for you.

Bottom Line:   
I have a 2006 Lynx with Sram SX5 in the rear and a 3.0 in the front and a Rock Shox Judy fork for starters. Hayes disc brakes and WTB everything else really make this bike a sweet ride. With trigger shifters I'd recommend this bike for anyone because once you burn out the original derailers and everything else, with the way the bike is built, its not something you'll want to ditch anytime soon.

Strengths:    Decent commute bike, very strong, only got marginally dented in an accident which gave me a broken spine and scapula.

Weaknesses:    wheels not responsive enough on turns.

Bottom Line:   
good commute bike, i don't know how it would stand up to the rigors of mountain biking, for the price i paid i feel i got a good deal. only a couple of flats on each tire, which i took care of by using a slimy tube. am planning to fix whatever is wrong with it after the accident, and use it as a secondary bike; for the primary commute bike, i am considering a trek 6500. i have put more than 4000 miles on this bike in 2 years, and it needed just one tuneup for a spoke change and brake tightening. used it in shine, rain, snow, you name it.

i have to add that i did not use the gears a whole lot, chief setting was 2 on front and 5 or 6 on rear derailleurs; once i tried 3 on front and 4 or 5 on rear, but found this setting exhausted me during my 4 mile commute (averaged 15-17 minutes).

Date Reviewed: July 28, 2005

Strengths:    Light, reasonable ride, tyre - Ritchey Megabites

Weaknesses:    crap crap forks, threaded headset sucks

Bottom Line:   
This is a well worn bike but has not stood the test of time or durability. Everything is pretty much dead on the bike, the running gear is gone, the cranks are loose, the threaded headset sucks.... Bianchi should stick to road bikes
