Bianchi makes mountain bikes. One of the instructors in a mtb clinic I was in rides a Bianchi B.O.S.S. However, I'm not sure if this one on craigslist is real or not.

Why don't you start by asking the seller the dimensions, and see if it'll fit.

I love how it says 'Cash Only'. Just bring pennies. It's only 1,000. Fits in two pockets.

Not a real high end bike, but would make a sweet single speed project!

I have a Bianchi fetish, so at the current moment I wish I had a Bianchi mtb. Don't worry, your deal is safe. It is an old, low end bike, but $10 isn't much for a fun beater like that.

Well I'm buying it. I emailed the seller. It says its a little rusty in some places, and I've fixed rust on my other bike(s).
Think It'll be a worthy MTB for (the fabulous) maximan?

BTW he still doesn't know I'm 13. My dad will be buying it.

Actually, he'll post pics of his Wal*Mart bike, and also a few follow up posts saying that the three of you all hate him.

I hate no one. Well, no one on BF, at least.

Max's posting pattern, as correctly identified by Scootcore, is humorous, that's all.

I guess if we really wanted to help him with our advice, we would have suggested he get the Wal-Mart bike. That way he almost certainly would have bought the Trek.

Seriously, Max, I hope the WM bike works out for you. Good luck!

I think he wants help, where help is defined as validation of a decision already made. If so, that's perfectly fine, I just think we wish it was packaged as such, sometimes.

Cali, the Wal Mart bike is a piece of crap...I think the nicest thing a person can do is try to steer someone away from garbage...even if that person is insulted.
