Bianchi San Jose

2008



Description 

One-Speed Cyclo-cross/Commuting machine that is simple, efficient and reliable.  I have added Planet Bike fenders and replaced the stock tires with Vittoria Randonneurs. This is a great bike for the price - about 600.00 new and I have seen them on craigslist between 300.00 and 400.00.

That's a nice looking bike. Does anyone know if that's one Sky Yaeger did before leaving Bianchi?

She did. Her designer sticker is on the back of the seat tube.

I have about 6500 miles on mine mostly commuting miles. A few fun rides though I did a century ride on it last fall. It was my only bike at the time with fenders and it rained most of the day. I also have a front and rear rack mounted on it. The front is a little nashbar job that works great holds a six pack perfectly. The back is a blackburn a trunk works fine but the chain stay is a little short for panniers. My small front ones all the way back work fine. I also replaced the seat with my personal favorite and changed the bars too. Italia flyte gel and the bars are the on one midge's. And of course pedals. This is a very versitile bike and very low maintanance.

I purchased one of these in November and have ridden it constantly since then. I have nothing bad to say about this bike - it's a great all-around ride. Knowing that going from fixed-gear commuting to hitting trails is as easy as flipping a wheel and swapping some tires is great. Highly recommended.

Great singlespeed cyclocross/commuter bike for the money. I like having the option of running wider tires vs a standard singlespeed road bike. And it's steel!

What's the usual price for a bike like this?

This, along with the Raleigh One Way and the Redline 9.2.5 are the finalists for my new singlespeed. Hope to find somewhere in Houston that actually has the bike to get a testride! (as I love the look).

I'm riding an old Ibis Hakkalugi cross bike but if I wanted a newer bike this would be 1st on my list. Having the option of big tires, studded tires and room for fenders make the San Jose a smart choice as a commuter bike.
