Who would replace a Campy (Athena?) rear der with Sora???


Vintage Bianchi Road Bike w/ Columbus SLX Steel Tubing (51 mm)
[h=2]Vintage Bianchi Road Bike w/ Columbus SLX Steel Tubing (51 mm) - $450 (Belmont, MA)[/h]




















condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Bianchi
size / dimensions: 51 mm




Beautiful bike with a smooth ride to take you around town or on long training rides. Classic 1980s vintage Bianchi road bike with Columbus SLX tubing, in excellent condition. 51mm (20 inch) frame. Original Celeste green paint.

Recently tuned up. Many new parts including: 8 speed cassette, 700c wheels (tires, tubes rims), 9 speed chain, brake and gear cables and housing, Bontrager grip tape. Comes with Look peddles. Original Campangnolo groupset (except for a new Shimano Sora Rear Derailleur).

I will also include bonus items: 2 Celeste green Bianchi bottle cages, new Looks cleats, and extra Campangnolo Rear Derailleur. There are a couple of minor scuffs but the paint is in near perfect condition. Great bike for someone probably 5'5 or taller. 30-inch standover height.

That could be a sweetheart of a bike with some tweaks here and there.

I rode a CSI a week ago and it gave me second thoughts about selling my frameset.

They are truly exceptional road bikes.

Vintage Nishiki Touring Bike! - $190

This is a 1986 Nishiki Cresta GT Touring Bike. Its a 21" frame and is made of Tange lugged cromoly. This bike rides amazing...it feels so smooth. It unfortunately is a tad too small for me or else I would never get rid of it. The wheels are 27" bronze anodized Araya's and spin smooth and true. It also has a rear rack installed as well as three braze ons for water bottle cages. This would make someone a fantastic commuter or all day tourer. I have changed out the handle bars but I have the originals as well. Let me know if you have any questions.

Is it a bad bike? Looks non-original, but both the parts and asking price seem decent.

It's French AND a Gitane. That's two strikes.

In all seriousness french bikes usually are substantially less desireable, the bike is huge, it's a franken bike, it's dirty, the stem, tape and saddle look hideous in this combination and he's far from the city. I'm not surprised it's been stagnant. Personally I don't like the "attention collectors" thing...collectors know what they're looking at without his help. It comes across pompous and the bike isn't worth the tag line.

Do the fastback stays mean that this is a semi pro or a super elite?

That's a cool bike. I like the story behind it. Nice parts. And $250 is cheap.
