Interbike 2010 Report - Bianchi, Masi, and Velocity

Here's a few peeks that I was able to grab at some of the new 2011 bikes from Bianchi and Masi, our two boutique bike brands!

Here are a couple of models in the flat-bar road-bike/performance hybrid category, with a look and flair that only Bianchi can give:
Bianchi ups the ante in their cyclocross line with this model, the Cavana:
The Bianchi Volpe, our best-selling Bianchi model for all time, returns. They've made it in a cream color, and added cross levers to the handlebar tops. Other than that, they've stuck with the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" motto for this cyclocross/touring bike: Shimano Tiagra shift/brake levers, Tiagra derailleurs, Tiagra hubs, Sugino triple crankset, WTB All-Terrain tires:

Fixed-gear devotees anxiously await the release of the new Bianchi Pista every year, and this time around, Bianchi doesn't disappoint with the retro look of their popular track bike:

And here's the Super Pista version for true track-racing fans:

The Masi Speciale CX cyclocross/touring bike returns in a new color and otherwise pretty much unchanged:

They're making a singlespeed version now, the Special CXSS. I'm diggin' those fat 700x45C tires and the swept-out handlebar:
Those of you who have liked Masi's retro styling will really appreciate the full-on retro-ness of the new Speciale Strada, right down to the downtube-mounted shift levers:

Just a pleasant reminder that Velocity USA makes rims in a wide variety of colors (in addition to the standard old silver or black). We can get these babies for you pretty quickly from Velocity's warehouse located in Michigan, as part of our hand-built custom wheel service:
