Yeah, that is a deal. And when, exactly, was the last time you saw yours?

Wow, I wonder what the story is behind that. If he had some shipping figures out there, I'd consider it.

Anyone know why the frame sizes jump from 55 to 58? What would a 56 rider get?

I guess based on Bianchi's specs (standover height), I'd probably be good on the 55.

Whats with the rusty shipping container in the background? Doesn't spell out "legit" to me

I'd do some serious questioning of this seller before even considering the purchase

I believe there is no 2008 Volpe, so get 'em while you can.
