    Hi I have recently tried hard to get a bike and I did consider Bianchi (in the end i got a bargain principia) however i do think they are slightly heavier than other bikes but not much plus the are so cool compared to a carrera hope this helps

    I'd look closely at the lower end Giant Ocr's or a Cannondale R500 maybe, I think the pedigree may well shine through.

    Worry more about what components you get other than weight. For that sort of money you should be able to get a tiagra equipped machine & they are all upgradable.

    Also, might be worth checking out Ebay, my gf got a 12month old Shimano 105 equipped Trek 1200 for £300 last December - bargain!
