I can't wait for it to arrive. I'm sooooooooo ready for it to finally get here.

I'm also hoping the universe comes together and all of my parts have arrived by Friday when the frame gets here =) That way I will (hopefully) be able to ride the new bike all weekend!

And don't worry... you'll get a full ride report and a review as just as soon as I have enough time to make a fair judgement. =)

I can't say anything about the Bianchi, but I bought a Surprise this year and I love it. I've been riding aluminum for the past 3 years and was concerned that the aluminum Surprise would be no different (although I like the way aluminum rides), I was wrong, it is a sweet, sweet ride. Smooth over the bumps and crevices on the roads and bike trails, handles so nicely, almost like auto-pilot. I have mine dressed out with Chorus and Campy Proton wheels...it is so much fun to ride, the first time I rode mine, in February, I ended up doing 50 plus miles - grinning the whole way. Anyway, I enjoy mine :-)...can't wait for my collar bone to heal so I can ride it again!!! (The bike DOES handle great, the crash was my fault, not the bikes - damn gravel...good news, no damage to the bike except for a scratched right pedal :)
