|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.
