this is a ‘90 or ‘91 model, and few models higher in the food chain the the bike you’re comparing it to

I simply meant that there seems to be no resemblance between them, as if my bike is completely different. Not saying I have a poor quality ride, just "different", especially when comparing the forks. If both bikes came without stickers I'd never have guessed miner was Bianchi - I'd have said Schwinn!

How much for the pickup? Bike looks like a pretty nice deal, though, for someone who can deal with the rust.

How come this thread doesn’t get a sticky? Seems like it would make a lot of sense. Given it’s age and popularity I’m guessing this has been discussed and resolved already?

They're saving up to make it a new sub-forum.

It gets posted to frequently enough that it stays near the top of the C&V section pretty-much every day. Stickies are more appropriate for threads that sometimes get quiet enough to fall down a page or two, but have lasting / permanent informational value.
