Bianchi Bergamo

2008



Description 

From Bianchi's 2008 catalog: "The light and zippy aluminum frame, shared with the Boardwalk, is mated with the unique SRAM DualDrive single-sided shifting system. An ingenious, self-energized internal 3-speed hub is paired with a 7-speed rear derailleur for easy right-handed shifting, which eliminates two chainrings and the front derailleur. Shifting is super light, smooth and intuitive and easy to downshift at the stop light. Rack and fenders make this one smart city ride" 

It's the Bianchi competitor - if a little more aggressive - to Novara Fusion, Breezer Town Bike line, Cannondale Street, Specialized Globe City and others.

All in all, this has been a pretty good transportation appliance, a good deal for the price. I haul a laptop, clothes and tools in panniers on my 4 mile commute each day. I added a genset for lighting, and changed out the puncture-prone Kenda Kwest 700 x 38 tires for Kenda KwickTrax 700 x 32, a big improvement. The SRAM DualDrive is superb: easy to use and a very practical range of gearing, which I fully use. A couple of 10% grades on the way can be handled without coming out of the saddle, and on flat smooth surfaces it's a comfy ride. On the other hand, this bike's handling does not inspire confidence at speed coming down the hills, so I don't, and the frame amplifies every pebble on rough surfaces, even on the 38s. The SRAM DualDrive is one of the best features of this bicycle, it's too bad it's not featured on more commuting-oriented bicycles.
