Opinions on 1990 cannondale SR2000 and 1988 bianchi brava

Hi

Been looking on Craigslist for quite some time for a decent c and v road bike that won't kill the bank. Two interesting ones popped up the other day in my size, and both appear to be in good condition.

The first is a 1990 cannondale r2000 with full dura ace. The asking price is $325.

The second is a 1987 or 1988 bianchi brava. It's black with Celeste decals, downtube indexed shifting and shimano 105 everything. The asking price is $200.

Any thoughts on which you like better and why and a decent price for each. I will obviously ride each before purchasing either one.

Thanks

Two different size bikes. How tall are you?

Thanks for the pics

I'm 6'1" and generally ride between a 56 and 60cm depending on the geometry

Any thoughts on these bikes?

The Cannondale is the superior bike, but it is too small for you. That's a 52 or 54.
The Bianchi is a very nice, solid, but not particularly flashy rider and is close to the correct size.

The ad says the cannondale is a 57 but you're probably right.

The CannonDale looks like about a 54.

Same seller for both, so kind of easy to test them both out for preference. At 6' +, IMHO, they're both too small.
