    Bianchi Premio on CL worth?

    Hi, I was browsing CL and saw this bike Bianchi Premio. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this would be a good price for such a bike, I tried researching more about it and it seemed like what the seller is saying would be true.
    However I know there's a Bianchigirl here on the forums and would value her opinion!

    Also apologies if this isn't the right forum.

    Welcome to the forums Berkbiker, and thanks for the vote of confidence.

    That is a '93 and it did come in the twotone blue paint. I would certainly try and get the price closer to $200 but I am cheap. It does have a Tange infinity DB frame/ fork and there are brazeons on the frame for a rack or fender. There two things about this bike that concern me though. The QR for a seatbinder, you need to look really close to be sure the 'ears' where the binder goes are no damaged or cracked. Also the stem looks very high and if it is up past the 'minimum insertion' or 'max height' mark it could have fork damage.

    Others in San fran area who frequently buy/sell bikes and can tell you better if that is a good price. If it fits and everything works it looks like an OK deal close to $200 would be a good deal.

    Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto (2), '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '88 Trofeo, '86 Volpe, '89 Axis, '79 Mixte SOLD, '99 Mega Pro XL Ti, '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, '89 Trek 2000, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape

    I'm about 5'5". Thanks for all the helpful information, I have tried a 53cm bike before and it was just touching so I think a 51 or 52cm is around my size.

    Google bike sizing, standover height is an inaccurate way to size bikes. There are a lot of other factors. And a standover of a 51 or 52 is going to be almost identical to a 53.
