Wanted, extra large man who rides a Bianchi

Why: because while going through Dadís old boxes of bike stuff, I found this. I donít thing it was worn but I do suspect it was probably touched by some like mechanic with grease on their fingers.

free, which is why Iím not putting it in the ďfor saleĒ

Arms zip off

Pockets in the back perfect for cigars

section.

post a pic of your 59 or taller bianchi and Iíll send it to you.

That is awesome and very generous. Donít have a Bianchi nor a 59 or better frame.

Someone will be thrilled!

I don't have a Bianchi at this time, but I do have a very tall green bike. 😃 Unfortunately, I don't have any cigars for those pockets. 😁😉

Someone tall with a Bianchi should get this. I'll pass. 😎

If that is a made in Italy Jersey it might fit like a ‘Murican medium, those Italian fellas are a bit on the small side. LOL.

Was ready to see some really tall frame showing signs that it probably belonged to the tallest brother of Dikembe Mutombo, but its a nice surprise. That jersey looks cool and it is a really nice gesture from you.

If I had an Eddy Merckx jersey, I still wouldnít send it to you because you donít know how to follow simple directions. But thatís a very handsome bike you have.

Ok, well I tried, didn't see where it specified the pic had to be of a Bianchi.

I saw the thread title and wondered ,"Oh, what's Bianchigirll up to now?" .
Then, I noticed that she wasn't the originator of the thread.

Give her some time, great gal and I think she might be on the road working in her truck.

Too late (but thank you for the kind idea!), but I'm not going to miss a chance to post her:


63cm Campione d'Italia, albeit with almost every component upgraded.

Always happy to post in a Bianchi thread. I will say a Euro XL jersey tends to fit more like a largish medium to large on us Americans. Here my 56 cm Ď83 Specialissima

After I give it to Merziac, if it doesn't fit, he can pass it on.
