|any one know what the model and year on this |
Bianchi? there are no stickers on the frame telling the model, I just know it's lugged steel with TSX tubing.
|I would say late 80's early 90's. TSX after SLX I think. (nm)||onespeed|

|Out of Reparto corse, simply called TSX-UL. I had one around 97. It was this, then EL-OS which was top of the line. Still a very respectable tube set.The cable through the top tube and rear chain stay were nice touch's. E mail www.columbustubi.com for the particulars. It was a great frame set for me. There was a little flex in the B/B area under heavy load, as I would get a little front deraileur rub in those conditions. I saw this on E bay or one like it. If you have acess to it on the bottom of the B/B shell there is a serial number. If you E mailed Bianchi in Italy they could tell you the year. A fine bike. Too bad it wasn't Celeste though. Others would dissagree.|
|I think '95-'96. TSX was slightly lighter than SLX...||rwbadley|

|They both had internal helical ribs for strength.
It should be a pretty nice ride, especcially in size smaller than 56cm. Larger frame size and heavier rider it may be a little squishy.

|I ride an old mid-80s steel lugged Bianchi. It's my backup bike, soon to be retired and replaced by something that fits a little better and weighs a little less. |
