Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I'm interesting and it's non-negotiable.

nah, just posted this because the seller doesn't seem to know what it is they are selling, so there's a possibility the bike could be stolen. also a chance that someone on here could know someone who recently lost a red bianchi.

i emailed the seller and asked for more info and a picture.

b and v are right next to each other on the keyboard.

as far as the "if you are interesting you can call to adriana to 914-9090443. (negotiable)" bit, maybe they wrote it when they were stoned/drunk.

Doubt they were drunk. That's pretty typical syntax for a native speaker of Spanish who hasn't learned too much English. Also, b and v make the same sound, so if you're not actually looking at the frame and just know it's a Bianchi, there's no reason you wouldn't use a V.

It's true! My mother in law pronounces Trevor like Trebor. I would like to hear her say vagina, but I really don't want to ask her.
