Bianchi Torino and Torino Dama: Lycra Function with Tweed Style, All on a Sweatpant Budget.
Daniel Hayes, 3/2016
The Bianchi Torino is a stylish, easygoing aid to fitness, activity and mobility. It is not for riding centuries. It is not for 'shredding the gnar'. However it will handle fitness and enthusiast rides from just around the neighborhood to moderate-milage commuting, path rides, trips to the local market and being the leisurely family getaway bike. Both the Torino and the Torino Dama sport hydroformed 6000 series aluminum frames with Shimano Acera / Tourney TX 24 speed drivetrains. With a price tag well below $500.00 it's enticingly affordable, and its adjustability features and seven various sizes distributed across either the men's or women's frame styles help the already relaxed position to be customized over a wide range of fit possibilities.
The Torino's classic frame is a nod to the European cafe commuter, mixing a relaxed and stylish look with the versatility of a piece of all-around fitness equipment. The relatively short virtual top tube length puts the rider's position decidedly upright, but an adjustable stem allows for broad variability when it comes to forward reach. The alloy wheels are equipped with durable 700 x 32c Kenda Kwest tires that serve as an excellent blend of rolling speed and resilience. Ergonomic grips and an elastomer equipped comfort saddle ensures that you'll feel less fatigue after a few miles down the road.
The Torino is a great first step fitness bike. For people uncertain of whether they want to commit to a sport whose price tags can initially seem daunting, or whether cycling might even be a proper outlet for their fitness lifestyle, they will find a ready and durable, capable and easy to manage introduction to the sport on this style of hybrid. Travelers love this bike. It's light and robust with a versatile range of gears that facilitate comfortable riding whether the terrain is calm and serene or, well, not so serene. Come in for a test ride and we'll help you find the fit that you need and help you settle on one of the six color options that Bianchi makes available.
