Bianchi 928 Carbon Mono-Q 105 Compact - Road Bikes: Reviews

One of the most versatile bikes we tested, the 928 Carbon is comfortable enough for mountain centuries and quick enough for hard efforts on twisty courses. With its race-inspired geometry and compact gearing, the Mono-Q earned high marks as an efficient climber, though testers would have liked to see wider handlebars—not only for better control on descents but also (for some) to promote a posture that opens up the chest and lungs. If you live for winning sprints at your weekly group ride, you'll probably want something with a bit more pop; it's fast and fluid, not twitchy. "The 928 is extremely comfortable," said one tester. "Road vibrations are muted, and the overall feel is quite buttery." 18 lbs, 56cm;
