Bike trading information? Windsor Hour vs. Pista
i have a 2004 bianchi pista which is sized at 53 which is a little bit too small for me. i put up an ad a while ago to see if anyone was willing to possibly swap for similar bikes but a larger size. i got a response from someone offering to trade a 56 Windsor Hour (pictured here http://img390.imageshack.us/img390/7383/dscf00329cw.jpg) i dont know much about windsor bikes at all and i was wondering if this is a good swap or if i would be losing out. do any of you all have information about Windsors or do you own one or know someone who has one? please help me out. Thanks
it's a rebadged fuji track, so you can research that for all the information you need. they sell for about $350 new, although that one apears to have some upgrades.
you should check it out... a 56 Winsor/Fuji may not be much bigger than your Pista. The Fuji track is measured center/top instead of center/center (BB to top of seatube)
if the size is right giver.... mmm brooks and Deep V's
Windsor bikes are "hecho en Mexico", not sure if that makes a difference or not. I know you can get a complete Windsor on ebay for around 350. I think the Fuji might be a better bike, but what do I know, I still ride a conversion.
