@huima Riding a bike is faster in Toronto when there’s a walk and then connection/transfer, and traffic is heavy to moderate. Your choice of a Bianchi for commuting reflects (a) you live in an honest country and/or (b) you have secure lockup facilities. I almost always ride my beater — an old Raleigh mountain bike with shopping baskets — that is of low attractiveness to thieves, and I wouldn’t be heartbroken if they did steal that.
