Bianchi 59cm Volpe Touring bike. New. $1,300.00

  • Bianchi Cro-Mo steel equipped with Shimano Tiagra 3 x 10sp group.
  • Painted blue

Here's Bianchi's description of the Volpe:

The Volpe melds the responsive handling of a road bike with the durability of a cyclocross bike. A variety of surfaces and conditions can be conquered thanks to generous tire clearance and proven components.

Steel tubing is heralded as the best value for bike construction when it comes to strength and vibration damping. Our exclusive TIG welded, Chromolite steel frame and fork provide a smooth and stable ride on or off paved surfaces.

Whether you’re navigating your region’s rail trail network or working on your Super Randonneur achievement, the need for comfort is paramount. The Volpe features a relaxed head tube angle that is a bit slacker than a standard performance road bike, providing greater control in crosswinds. The Volpe’s chainstays have been stretched out while its bottom bracket has been lowered over a typical cyclocross model. Longer and lower equates to faster and more stable over rough terrain. Front and rear eyelets and bosses permit the use of fenders, racks, and panniers to tailor the Volpe to your riding requirements.

A reliable parts package from Shimano which includes brakes, hubs, shifters, and derailleur ensures precision and durability. A triple-ring crank with a wide-range cassette make quick work of the flattest or steepest pitched roads that come your way!

Volpe frame geometry: Lengths given are in centimeters. Top tube lengths are effective top tubes: level, horizontal lines from the head tube to the seat tube axis.
