I purchased my Bianci Ocelot way back in 1995 or somewhere in that time frame. I have rode this bike in the mountains and the city streets. So we are talking about somewhere in the area of 20 yrs. Of course I have had to do maintenance to the bike but the frame is as strong today as it was back then. My wife has offered me new bikes throughout the years but I can’t put this was down until I absolutely have to. I stand by this bike

The Bianchi Ocelot is a great beginner bike. It offers supeior value for the money over most other brands. It has a FULL cromo frame and cromo fork, unlike many entry level bikes with only cromo seattube. It comes with entry level GripShift and Shimano Acera-X derailleurs. The bike weighs in at 29.5lbs, relatively light for a bike costing about $320.

Well it's been about 1 year since I got my Ocelot and I am atill as pleased as I was when I got it.Bianchi ain't the OLDEST bike company inthe world for nothing!!! This is still the best deal for a rigd frame bike in this price range. Trek, Cannondale , Gary Fisher etc have crap frames at this price range
and take a look at their forks comapred to the Bianchi, thin , wispy.. WEAK. Sorry folks but Bianchi might not have the HYPE of the rest but they got a better BIKE than the rest!!!!!!!!KICK ASS!!!!!!

Nice bike, I haven't had a chance to ride all that much, but like what I have seen of it so far. Good entry-level bike for an entry-level rider like me. It is very smooth (more so than I expected) and relativly light for the price. Plus the few adjustments I have had to make have been very easy.

I have no idea about MTB and this leads me to the conclusion that Ocelot is a great beginner bike. Only 1 week but riden every day for 2 hrs. No problems except some shifting rproblems on steep hills, probably just my fault, need lessons and also gear shift problems, need to change to Gearshift ESP system I think. MY ADVICE: BUY IT!!!
