2014 Bianchi Lupo Shimano Sora commuter touring cyclocross

2014 Bianchi Volpes are in! We’re excited to have the Volpe in stock in basically every size, and also to announce the new Lupo.

2014 Bianchi Volpe Shimano Tiagra touring commuter cyclocross

If you want to try a variety of riding, you’re best off with a Volpe. We love the Volpe because it works as a fantastic commuter, light touring bike, mixed-terrain road bike, winter trainer, and could even be used for cyclocross. The Volpe is made with a steel frame (Bianchi’s own chromoly tubing) and  features generous tire clearance (room for a 700 x 37 tire and fender) and all standard rack and fender eyelets. Bianchi outfitted the Volpe  Shimano Tiagra 3×10 shifters and derailleurs and a strong wheelset using Tiagra hubs and a double-walled, eyeleted rim. The price for this versatile, quality bike is just $1295.

2014 Bianchi Lupo Shimano Sora commuter touring cyclocross

The brand new Lupo is based on the Volpe frameset, but with a more affordable parts kit. It has the same intended use as the Volpe, only with Shimano Sora 3×9 shifters, derailleurs, and hubs.  Although the Volpe has nicer components and is lighter weight, the Lupo would be a great option for someone looking for a touring or commuting bike on a budget. The Lupo is in stock in multiple sizes for just $1049.
