    Bianchi Brava Info?

    Hey there,

    I'm still looking around for a good bike and I've heard the name Bianchi been thrown around a lot but I've also heard they're overpriced for the name.

    Found this Bianchi Bravas with Columbus frame tubing http://lh4.ggpht.com/_dNxi8h53r7s/Tc...jpg?imgmax=800)
    but couldn't figure out the year nor find good specs on these.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    this one looks like am '86. the brake lever hoods are missing. the frame as well as most of the componenets are Italian with Suntour shifters and derailleurs.

    Bianchi prices are all over the place but in general they run a bit high, it seems everyone thinks every Bianchi is a top of the line racer. how much is this one? does it fit?

    Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto (2), '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '88 Trofeo SOLd, '86 Volpe, '89 Axis SOLD, '79 Mixte SOLD, '99 Mega Pro XL Ti SOLD, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,

    Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '86 Bertoni (sold), '09 Motobecane SS, '98 Hetchins M.O., '09 K2 Mainframe SOLD, '89 Trek 2000, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape

    The guy is asking for $220, which I feel isn't cheap but then again isn't super high like what most ppl ask for a bianchi. It looks like it's in pretty good condition and it definitely fits my height. But is it worth it? I have a Schwinn Super Le Tour right now, it's a little tall for me, but I love it. So I want to make sure this bike is just as strong, light, and worthy haha

    What do you think, Bianchigirll?
