1993(?) Bianchi Campione

Looking at buying a sub $400 bike for training/commuting. I found this Bianchi that the seller said he would take $350 on. It has a 105 rear derailleur and hub, sora shifters.

Sweet Bianchi Campione

I'm gong to check it out in person Friday but it looks to be in pretty good condition and the guy said it's his baby and by the looks of it he did baby it.

There is also this Bianchi via nirone that looks like it's in good condition as well.

Bianchi Via Nirone Road Bike 59cm

I'm 6'1, 190lbs and am a pretty active rider here in Michigan so I want this to be able to hold up to the harsh roads too. Looking to upgrade from a hybrid now.
Anyone know if this seems like an okay deal?

The 56 cm Campione will, most likely, be a bit small for you...I will let others weigh in on the Via Nirone..pricing for the Campione seems about right (maybe a bit high)...

Pretty sure that's a '99. Tig welded, wishbone chainstays, and the color is called something like 'new pearl lime.' I had a 99 or 2000 - never was sure which - and I wish I still had it. Excellent frame, I thought. But, like you, I'm 6'1 and 195 lbs and, believe me, a 56cm would be too small for you. Keep your eyes open for a larger one. I am.

One a 56cm the others a 59cm. Your best fit would like be 58?

I'd do some test riding and keep shopping.
