    Help! Need Advice Fast Ebay Auction Ends in 1 hour Bianchi Campione

    This may be a stupid question but hey I'm a novice. A friend just got a Mercier Kilo TT from Bikesdirect.
    Now it's coming with free brakes and free freewheel. I was about to purchase one, but then I saw this

    Do I go with the brand new bike (not sure of the quality), or the used Bianchi?

    it looks like an older bike; if you're looking for a TT bike, this steel bike will probably weigh in on the heavy side, and down tube shifters are located on the tube, NOT the handlebars (just in case you didn't know). I don't know if I'd go $300 for it... and, make sure, if you're going for it, that it's the right size!
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to avoid a heavy bike so I'll be going with the Mercier.
