Bianchigirl- where are you ?? Price sounds really good to me. Pretty sure it is a Japanese manufactured Bianchi, but the Bianchi experts may prove me wrong.

I am sorry Jack but I do actually have to work once in awhile *giggle* it is a very nice looking bike looks like a '94 or '95. I if it was my size and real close I would have a hard time turning it down. retail for a premio was about $450.

Hey,

Thanks for the information guys. I haggled it down to $175. Do you guys know if the shifting on the exage components is indexed?

Dunno, and it's tough to discern in the posted pic, but the shifters in the pic don't look bulky enough to click

that is an even bettter deal. shimano Exage components should index. again judging from the pic it looks to be a '94 or so. once you get her cleaned up post a few better pics esp the drivetrain and luggs

All Shimano exage components are index shifting (both MTB and road bike)... Tange Infinity is a very good frame.

Go grab it!

Probably Tange 900, mine was. I sold one a year or two ago for $225 or so. Viola, I found the pic!
