Help me ID a Bianchi

I'm considering taking a drive to see this bike, but the seller is a flake and I've decided I don't want to deal with him unless the bike is something worthwhile.

so here's a crappy pic of the bike in question. The price is reasonable enough, I'm not looking for an evaluation, and this wouldn't be a flip...just another steed in the stable. Let me know what you think...worth a drive or not worth a drive?

The curved seatstays are what caught my eye. the Vertical dropouts have me thinking its a low-end Aluminum frame. I see that the drive-side chainstay has the Cable stop on the bottom so I'd assume the cable routing is under the BB. Looks like the DT is ovalized at the connection to the BB shell. And as you can see its Got Canti brake mounts.



any idea what this is?

Hello I bet if we could get a better pic the TT says Boardwalk. I did a quick look and this looks like an '07 Boardwalk hybrid. some of the alloy 'cross bikes in that era use the curved seatsays but the RD cable comes down the right SS from the top. the hybrids use a more traditional routing.

Thank you!

I just went and looked at some pics of the '07 Boardwalk and it certainly looks like you're correct. Not worth the trip for me.


Sorry for the modern bike posting....I shall repent and go ride something old.
