The first bike Edoardo Bianchi manufactured in 1885 had only one gear, not that he wanted people to suffer up the hills. It's just that his revolutionary vision of Celeste-colored human-powered two-wheelers predates the birth of gears. That's us, older than gears. Which is why when we introduce a new single-speed, it is somewhat of a contradiction. San Jose joins M.U.S.S and W.U.S.S. as the latest one-speeder that only makes sense if you get it. Unlike fixed-gear track bikes, which are the obvious standard for track racing and urban hipster pothole dodging, our single-speeders have a one-speed freewheel, so you can enjoy the pain off-road. Based on the popular steel Volpe frame, but with horizontal rear-entry track dropouts. It also sports a custom Bianchi rear hub, Cane Creek SCX cantilevers, WTB All Terrainasaurus 700x32c tires and the famous Bianchi ride, born before gears.
