    Bianchi road bike DEAL OR NO DEAL

    Hi some one is selling me this bike for 80 dollars. Apparently the bike can use a new front tire but other than that it is in good working order. Should I get it ?

    Well to start with I would say no deal because it looks to me like the fork is bent which is a big deal. 2nd, who knows what that bike is because the decals are homemade. I would keep looking.

    Pass at that price, unless you can get a new fork for cheap.

    While the BIANCHI decal is not legit, there are ways to check to see if it is a Bianchi. Check the front of the steerer tube for a decal. Look at the lugs and the top of the seat stays to see if they say Bianchi or have a B.

    The status of the ad is now SOLD so perhaps OP did not pass...

    You'd be better to offer $150 for this one - http://thinkpink.usedottawa.com/Repo...osition=1&hb=1 (Although shimano SIS certainly isn't anything to write home about)
