90's Bianchi Trofeo

This is my first bike and I am working on a saving up for a new one. But I love it to death, not so fun uphill but it will do for now. It sat in a basement for most of its life so it is in pretty good condition. I ride it all over the shoreline and it is a great old bike. Although it could use better brakes.

Welcome to the forums. Nice looking Bianchi. What wrong with it on the hills? Try some oil free nail polish remover (Cutex) to clean the braking surface on the rims and some heavy grit sand paper to scuff up the pads. That might help but you may need to replace the pads. What shoreline?

Well I have some tuning to do cause if I change the front set of gears to a lower gear too fast the chain falls off so I have to slowly do it which is a pain on the hills, and I live on the shoreline in CT.

AH. Yes even on a well tuned machine you drop the chain like that under a load. I used to love riding along the shore when I lived up near Hingham Mass.
