Looking for an entry level road bike to do some cross training and try out sprint/olympic distance triathlons. Currently considering: 2002 Fuji Finest-AL for $510 or a 1999 Bianchi Brava for $550. Any helpful reviews would be apprciated.

what is coming on each bike. An older bike(the bianchi) may have some better components or may have some beat up, lots of miles ect....

The Bianchi has Shimano RSX components and is in like new condition - the tires still have the nubbies on them.
The Fugi has Shimano Sora components with a Cyclone crankset.
The only advantage maybe that the 99 Bianchi has a Shimano crankset - but the new Bianchi's also use a Cyclone crankset.
