Great review, thanks! I’m having difficulty deciding between the Bianchi E-Omnia T Type and Trek Powerfly FS 9 Equipped. Your thoughts?Reply

Hi Peter! If you appreciate the style of the Bianchi, and their brand, it’s going to be tough to beat. I see it as a fancy import with unique design features. Trek is more “vanilla” and common, at least in the US and Canada, and I consider them to be the all around best major brand. I don’t think you can go wrong with the Powerfly FS and I’m a big fan of full suspension vs. hardtail because of the increased comfort and capability. For dealer support, proven design, and comfort… I’d go with Powerfly if I was buying for myself and price was not a consideration.Reply

I purchased the T type and love it. One difficulty I’ve had is finding accessories for it with the proprietary rack. Do you know what type of panniers and bags work with the rack? Thanks!!Reply
Court8 months ago
Awesome! I’m glad it’s working well for you Tiffany. The rear rack is pretty unique, I wonder if you could make it work with a Velcro strap style trunk bag or panniers that hang over the top like this? The fender plastic below the metal tubing makes it a bit different than other racks I’ve seen. Perhaps others will have an idea, I’ll think on it and let you know if anything else comes to mind Tiffany!Reply

I’ve bought one, love the bike but that battery cover rattles like hell and the unique luggage rack is too unique to be very useful!Reply
Court4 months ago
Thanks for the feedback, Nick! Yeah, there’s a balance between how unique and custom something is vs. the price and how refined it is (how well it works). I like what Bianchi created here, but I can see how the rack would be a little awkward in some situations :)

I replaced my home-brew pedalec with an XL Nexus E-Omnia T-Type. The bike I received had radius hydraulic brakes, 203mm rotors, and Vittoria 48mm e-randonneur tires. Still no word regarding Omnia specific bags, currently have a Topeak MTX trunk adapter zip tied to the rack.Reply

Thanks for the update, Brian! Sometimes the bikes I’m loaned for reviews are samples or pre-production and the parts change a bit during launch. I have’t heard or seen much for the Bianchi products since covering this one. It certainly is a unique product, and a brand that is cool! Maybe supply chain has impacted the parts and caused their bags to come out slower or be canceled. In any case, I hope your E-Omnia works well for many years to come!Reply

I was able to purchase some panniers from Oregon Ebikes. They were able to get them directly from their Bianchi contact. I love the paniers and the system. It allows you to easily remove them. I’m new to biking, but prefer this system over the velcro straps on my husband’s trunk bag we purchased for his Bulls bike.

So far it’s done quite well thanks! I have about 600mi on the bike so far. Less powerful than the home-brew, but the Bosch activation system is a lot smoother. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one that’s bought a Bianchi e-bike from my local dealer and getting support has been interesting. The limiter is still set for the larger 2.4″ tires, hopefully that will get resolved after the holidays.
Being a larger person—over 6′, 220lbs—the air shock fork has been nice. One of the biggest issues I had on the home-brew was dealing with the effects of vibration of 28mph for 90+ minutes a day on poor roads, and the fork seems to help with that. I found the suspension seat post counterproductive; replaced it with a narrower saddle and a good carbon seat post and have been more comfortable since. The seat post is a huge upgrade.
The tires as equipped have been extremely flat resistant. During the first 50–100mi of riding they were very slick in the rain and had almost an egg shaped profile; having worn down a bit they have much better wet grip. I figured out the tensioning system for the belt, and was struggling to keep the belt tensioned, but I found the Abus lock was the culprit. With the lock mounted at the furthest possible point it still does not clear the rim well enough to maintain tension.
Related, I’m sure, the rim profile of the wheels I have appear deeper than the original spec. Most likely helps make for stronger wheels, possibly better wind profile. I do get pushed a little in a cross-wind but not excessively. The Nexus e5 rear hub seems to handle upshifts under power smoothly, makes a clunking noise if I downshift while pedaling. I try to avoid that situation.
The radius brakes are competent but the levers are disconcertingly squishy. I’m going to see if I can get my LBS to top off/bleed them because they don’t inspire confidence. I added SQLab Innerbarends to get a “hoods” position. Toyed with the idea of pursuit bars but the twist shifter isn’t really compatible.
Thanks for the info re the Panniers, Tiffany, I’ll ask my LBS again if he can locate anything.
