    It's not a good candidate for that.

    Actually, this bike might be something of a collector's item...this was a "Twenty-Niner" mountain bike before the marketeers came up with the "Twenty-Niner" label. Bianchi USA was way ahead of its time, the market was not ready, and they lost their shirt on this project, because too few people understood what they were trying to do.

    Offer it for sale as a "Twenty Niner" and you should get a decent price for it.

    What size is the bike? If you want to sell it I might have someone who is interested.

    No bike is that large, you must have measured wrong. A 30 inch frame would be for someone 8 feet tall! ;-)

    See: http://sheldonbrown.com/selling for details on how to measure a frame correctly.
