The Torino features a lightweight, double-butted, aluminum frame with hydroformed top tube, sturdy aluminum fork, and double-wall rims for durability. A wide, thick saddle, adjustable handlebar stem, ergonomic handgrips, and slip-resistant platform pedals maximize ride comfort.
Most city bikes at this price point are super-squishy, mush machines with a suspension front fork and suspension seat post. Of course, a suspension fork makes tons of sense for mountain biking, but on the streets it just adds weight and complexity. Plus, they are ugly and you can't really mount a sturdy basket on suspension bikes. This is a legitimate bike.
The Bianchi Torino is a step up from the Cortina city bike. It is the same frame but is a more serious, sporting bicycle with the following upgrades:
- an adjustable stem, if you want to adjust to a more agrressive or more upright riding position
- trigger button shifters instead of the gripshift
- narrower, less squishy saddle
Comes in four sizes: 41CM, 47 CM, 54 CM, 59 CM
