Bianchi Volpe or Jamies Aurora
« on: November 09, 2008, 07:15:19 pm »
Hey all.  I'm looking to buy a new touring bike and it's down to the Bianchi
Volpe or the Jamis Aurora.  I rode a Volpe across the country last year,
but it was stolen.  The Jamis is a bit cheaper but seems like a good bike.  
Any thoughts on the two?

Thanks much,

I'll go ahead and cast my vote for the Jamis Aurora.  Both are steel bikes and have similar ride characteristics.  The 2008 Bianchi did not come with eyelets for a low rider front rack which is a bummer.  The Jamis Aurora is solid, and if you want to smooth out your ride a bit more, I like the Aurora Elite with the beefy carbon fork.
