I have a new obsession.
This is a Bianchi Mini Velo. They are smaller than regular road bikes but have the same ergonomic geometry to feel almost similar to a full sized road bike.
The purpose of these bikes are to save room, easier portability and storage when you are not riding.
You know, I have no idea how I happened upon this bicycle…I think I was looking at folding bikes and this caught my eye.
Now I can’t think of anything else. You see, I had a folding bike but sold it because the whole folding/opening/weight/wear&tear on the bike made it less useful in its functionality for me. But I miss my folding bike. And now have a reason to ride a smaller bike/folding bike to work.
And now, nothing will do until I can find a Bianchi Mini Velo. Sadly, they are mainly sold in Japan, where space is obviously at a premium.
Thus begins my campaign to bring these beautiful bicycles to America.
