    buying a bianchi pista

    a friend of mi n is selling a 55CM 2001 bianch pista. i believe its an 01 because it is flat black with bianchi and pista outlined in green and a green seat, and it is in really good consition. it has a few upgrades. i cant remember brand names.
    new handlebars
    new chrome looking pedals with straps
    vittoria tires
    surly hub and new rims
    NEW HEADSET BRAND CANT REMEMBER BUT COSTS $130.

    ALSO IS 55CM GOOD FOR A GUY THAT IS 6FT IT 6'1?

    WHAT IS A GOOD ASKING PRICE FOR THIS BIKE??
    SRRY FOR BEING A NOOB!

    Might be a little on the small side. Depends on the stem and how long your legs are.

    I'm 6', and have a 2005 57cm Pista. Not sure if the geometry's different, but I wish I had the next size up.

    Go test ride it. If it fits, buy it. Ride it. Have fun. Put Jesus post cards in your spokes if you are going to NYC.
