  1. It's a Bianchi Veloce. All Italian pa$$ion, and it owns your neighbor's Huffy like woah. Paid $700 for it on Craigslist, probably the only 'nice ' thing in my whole house right now. Worth almost as much as my car. Woo.
     
  2. That is worth $700 dollars?
     
  3. Used. It's a Bianchi. They're pretty badass.
     
  4. Yep. Nineteen and a half pounds, carbon fiber fork, all that good stuff. Try seventeen hundred new at MSRP.
     
  5. Great...One more schmuck to hold up the right lane during rush hour. Thanks...

    <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A> ... j/k! Looks good!
     
  6. that really looks good, I like cycling (on tv)..
     
  7. What kind of groupo does it have?
     
  8. i bought a $600 apollo road bike. its not that great, but im lazy and it takes a hell of alot less effort to ride than a mountain bike
     
  9. Campagnolo Centaur/Veloce mix, 27-speed drivetrain.
     
  10. Sweet. My former bike used Shimano Ultegra and I've riden a bunch of campy stuff and they're just as good if not better. I had a chance to ride a Look 585 with full Campy Record carbon that blew my mind. The bike (with Cosmic Carbones) was under 15 pounds.
     
  11. side note... we had it for sale at $9,899
     
  12. record carbon is brilliant, changed from ultegra to that
     
  13. that's a very nice bike. congrats.
     
  14. My dad has an apollo road bike and it weighs 9kg.
     
  15. Sweet, now go imitate Panzer and run over a dog with it. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>
     
  16. *Run over Panzer with it.
     
  17. I just got an old Norco aluminum frame, it is light, etc.. and was $50.
     
  18. Very nice.
     
  19. The Mormons in the East Bay are given Bianchis.
     
  20. nice bike and enjoy it.
     
  21. Right on man, they're great to ride.
     
  22. Yes.
     
  23. I'm trying to get my parents to buy me a nice road bike at some point. I'm a cheap bastard.
     
  24. I want a cannondale mountain bike for off roadin and shit. Treks are real good too.
     
  25. Me too, so I just souped up an old 1974 touring bike that I got for free. New seat, new sprockets, spoke and brake tune up, touring handlebar extension. Works fine for me, and only cost me 80 bucks. Touring bikes cost over 900$ for the cheapest one brand new.
