|Friend looking for road bike...ideas?||Buttstew|

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,

|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.

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