Great quality and looks great

PostedSeptember 15, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Tried a number of bikes inc some carbon ones. The Bianchi in 53cm felt just right for me compared to the others. You know straight away when something feels right. I wanted a more relaxed geometry but still have the ability to push on fast and the Impulso seems a good compromise.
Although an aluminium frame, and therefore a little heavier especially with the heavier wheels, the ride is very smooth and the Shimano ultegra / 105 components are very slick in operation. The saddle seems fine and comfortable although the longest ride I've done so far is around 30m. I would have preferred more of Bianchi celeste turquoise colour on the frame but it does look very smart in predominantly black and white with flashes of celeste. Looks much better in real life than in photos. And you don't see any of the welding joins at the top of the frame due to Bianchi's manufacturing process.
I'm getting back into recreational road cycling after 35 years and the Bianchi doesn't disappoint. It's feels very stable downhill and round corners and I'm not worried about the slightly heavier weight as I'm not a mad hill climber nor am I interested in racing.
Evans were very good and patient with me and have price matched a number of items that I purchased and even suggested additional ways to reduce the price on offers that I was not aware of.
So I'm pleased with the Impulso and trying to ride as often as I can before the winter sets in.
