    Went to Tokyo for silver week, and checked out a bike shop while there. Had a look in the outlet section, and upshot is new 105 equipped Bianchi on the way to my house sometime in the next week. Pics when I get it.

    Nice I rode a Bianchi 1885 out of Varese for a week last September, including a 175km day from Varese up into Switzerland around Lake Lugano, Lake Como then back into Italy and Varese, that was a big day. Did 500km around there that week, was a lovely bike. Liked it better than mine in a lot of ways.

    I got some nice wellgo pedals, which suit the bike quite nicely.

    Can you recommend a simple-ish bike computer?
