Howdy roadies,

I'm usually over at mtbr, anyway, I have a friend who's getting into road bikes. He has up to 1K to spend. Any ideas on complete bikes that would be good. I assume bianchi, but which one? Any others?

Thanks all, I appreciate your help,
Buttstew

Heck, I'd use it to commute if I didn't live 35 miles from my job!

I used this listing once before to inquire of Bianchi's and am now a happy owner of a 2000 Eros. (My bike is as green as a Phelsuma, that's partly how I picked my screen name). I believe that I have put over 350 miles on it and the only aspect that I can complain about is the stock saddle - takes a while to get used to.

Definitely look for an older model and save a few bucks. Then spend those dollars on other gear.

Best wishes!
Thanks Gecko...Buttstew

I'll pass that on to my friend. I'll tell him to check out the Eros and Campione.

Thanks,
