For some strange reason I'm not feeling it with this bike so......I checked it out on bikepedia and now I know why!!

Back in the day we sold Bianchi's and for some reason the Vittoria tires irritated me. They seemed cheap and cheesy, almost like $3 Taiwan tires but Bianchi went with them anyways because of the Itailianness of them. Bianchi did some other wierd things like spec'ing Miche headsets. WTF? Miche?

Overall its a very nicely spec'd bike with a full Campy Veloce Ergo group (except the headset), SS spokes, Mavic SUP rims and a few other nice features.

$500 is 38% of MSRP which is a little high but its not bad either. In regards to the rust you see, I wouldnt worry about it. As long as the chroming on the components is OK there isnt much to worry about.

See if she'll take $450.
