Pros:Light-Weight, easy to ride, nimble, accurate gear shifting, top quality parts all the way around.
The Bottom Line: This is a fantastic bike which I look forward to riding all the time. Everyone I let try it is very impressed, and immediately compliments the bike.
After going to lots of stores and trying different bikes, I finally decided upon the Bianchi Boardwalk (with my hard-earned dollars). It was a bike I was attracted to from the moment I saw it, and the bike I compared all the others to. I do not go off-roading, so a hybrid is what I was looking for.

I am a tough shopper, and I wanted to make sure that my money was being spent on a bike I would be really happy with, and most of all, I wanted to make sure that I wouldn't have "buyer's remorse".
I compared the Boardwalk to the Trek models and some others. The Bianchi just drove better. It was smoother, lighter, and just felt like a better, higher-quality bike. I can only compare this to driving a Lexus for the first time. Once you drive the Lexus, it is a standard that you will compare other cars to. That's how I felt about the Bianchi. I wanted to find another bike that compared to it so I could weigh my decision, but the other bikes didn't compare at all.
The "Matte Fake Ti" color is a really nice graphite/charcoal color. Shifting is also really smooth & easy. This bike is so much fun to ride, and I also have pride of ownership. The bell is pretty cool too (my kids love it), as you can just spin it around and around with your thumb. The tires have really good traction, and the rims are very 'racy' looking. It's just a hot bike.
There are also built-in LED lights in the seat for night riding. The lights will strobe, or stay on constantly with the selector/on/off switch.
This bike is just very light and very cool looking. It is so much fun to ride. Bianchi really makes a nice bike.
