What year is this Bianchi Veloce?Spinarooni

I'm looking at this Bianchi Veloce at my store and its that 50s blue color. I look at the web site and this bike is yellow for what I guess is 2002. The bike is selling for $1319.45 and its the 18 spd set up. Is this a good deal? If I get this it will be my first road bike for I am an avid mountian biker. Thanks
why didn't you ask the store? nmclimbo

If by 50's blue you mean celeste, that color is offered every year on the Veloce. They offer an alternate color every year that varies from year to year. The yellow color shown on the Bianchi web site is a 2001 model. 2002 models aren't out yet.

I would check the shifters for cues. 2001 levers say 9 speed on them. 1999-2000 levers have buttons molded into the hoods for Ergobrain controls, and 1998 levers do not.
