Bianchi Bikes (new but look old)crossITup

Have you seen the Bianchi Corallo and Giada? If you look on and look under City Bikes you can see them. I'm wanting to buy a set for me and my wife but am wondering what the price is. I guess they only sell them over here in Europe.

They have the old brakes that pull up onto the rims and the cushy seats & all. Sweet looking!!

i give credit to bianchi for building and marketing that.

it looks so cool...i would seriousl;y think about buying one if it did have rod actuated brakes...and then ripp off all the reflectors and get misself a basket throw in a baggeutte (looks cooler), some fromaggio, a bottle of vino and cruise central park in my white linens lookin' for chicks.....

yes i am stupid but ideas and imagination maketh the person and cultivate aesthetics too.

bianchi USA are so boringSpirito

i inquired if they could import one (extra cost at my expense) as i would imagine it would be easier for them to ship over as they do anyway....

or some info on who to contact in europe, or some more info.......the response

This model is not available in the US.

Thank you,

Bianchi USA
