Bianchi Via Nirone Dama - Sora Group
Great first serious bike, great first triathlon bike.
From Bianchi, most of this translates to "it's comfy":
Buying your first road bike shouldn’t be a difficult choice for a new cyclist. The choices should exceed your budget with regards to quality and value. That’s where the Via Nirone hits the mark for the ladies.
Women should ride the best performing bicycle they can buy. Italian design is at the root of all the Dama Bianca bicycles; stylish, functional, and first in class racing pedigree for the Dama market. Bianchi offers unique, individual, small batch production frames which state the rider wants to enjoy miles on a bicycle during a winery tour, a metric century, or training for their first sprint triathlon.
The Dama Bianca Via Nirone is built around our road endurance geometry we call C2C (Coast to Coast) and utilizes our proven K-VID (Kevlar Vibration Isolation Device) vibration damping technology in its carbon fork, a size specific hydroformed aluminum frame, as well as BAT (Bianchi Active Technology) to optimize sitting and pedaling position on her bike. All of this is brought together on our C2C bikes in order to increase rider comfort allowing you to stay relaxed and ride confidently further than your last ride.
Though this bike is brand new with full factory warranty, we also listed it in used bikes as the close-out price means it is competitively priced to used bikes.
Currently, we have sizes 44 and 50 CM. A 46 is on the way.This is a brand new bike with full factory warranty. Coco's believes in getting the best bike for the money and that often means buying a bike that is last year's model. With the exception of high end mountain bikes, there is not a ton of innovation being done in the bike industry on a year to year basis. Generally, especially in the sub-$2000 market, new year refreshes are cosmetic. In fact, often, the change is to downgrade components - move from a name brand headset or crank to a house branded item.
