... last fall I reported a Bianchi propped against a barn on Rt 50 in WV, seen week after week as I drove to the cabin.

We opened the cabin for the season last weekend, and the bike is still there.

Next time up, my wife says I can stop, check it out, and see if I can offer a few bucks to rescue it. I don't know if it fits me, and I can't really say I'm fond of Celeste green, but this is kinda like finding flags lying on the road -- some things are just obscenely wrong.

will surely smile upon you for this small act of kindness. BTW I ride a 51-52 and would gladly adopt it if it's salvageable.

A Bianchi fan

YOU WILL GO AND SAVE THE BIANCHI. DO NOT ASK FOR PERMISSION!! I TALKED TO GOD ON THE RIDE THIS AFTERNOON AND HE SAID IT WOULD BE OKAY FOR YOU TO LIBERATE THE BIANCHI FROM IT'S SURE DOOM! HE ALSO SAID IT WOULD GET YOU CLOSER TO THE "A" RIDE WHEN YOU EVENTUALLY GET HERE! IF YOU DO NOT SAVE THIS BIKE, HE SAID HE WOULD MAKE YOU RIDE A MOTOBECANE...WITH 7 SPEED RSX COMPONENTS, AND GIVE YOU A PERMANENT SADDLE SORE! THAT IS ALL!
