Strength:

measured stiff, stable, comfortable, design

Weakness:

overweigh, unusual geometry

in two years using senna can not get used to the bike, especially on the flat...So I began to doubt the geometry of the bike,I'm not an expert, but judging by past experience. As for the quality, measured stiff, stable, comfortable, and unfortunately overweigh (with dura ace group, and quite of carbon parts).

Strength:

stiff, comfort

Weakness:

none

had a aluminum bike before with carbon fork. the carbon seatstays on the bianchi sl3 noticeably eliminates the road buzz. stiff enough for sprints and climbing, yet comfortable enough for a long ride.

Strength:

Good comfortable with the carbon fork and seatstays. Stiff main triangle but does not beat you up on rough roads. Nice color scheme - black/silver.

Weakness:

Heavier bike for this price range. Centaur works well, but the Vento wheels are quite heavy.

Surprising comfortable Aluminum/Carbon bike for a light rider - smooth on rough roads, reasonable acceleration, good on climbs.

Strength:

Solid build, pure silk on the road, not to stiff to make for a sore ride.

Weakness:

Nothing yet!

The best bike I have ever been on! This bike is light, factory light, not additives yet and only a touch over 16 pounds. I’m not much of a climber but testing the hills I found allot more response and much better times then on my other bike (Iron Horse Cyclone). Smooth ride and very forgiving , solid build and solid fit. I almost got a touring bike but one ride on a Bianchi and the pure comfort of this design I am glad I bought this bike.
