I love this bike. I got it about 10 years ago. I went to buy a set of rollers from a guy in Charlotte who advertised them for sale in the local paper. I finagled my way into a wind trainer in addition to the rollers for about $50 more. To cap off the deal, I half-jokingly said, "if you throw in the Bianchi, it's a deal." Much to my surprise, he agreed. I think the total was $125 or so.

I got this mid 80s Bianchi Nuovo Record for free! I later added 172.5 Athena crankset, Stronglight headset and Mavic Open Pro SUP wheels on the record hubs. I ride to work a couple of times a week in the Winter and nearly every day in the Summer on my friction shift Bianchi.

By the way, every Winter I still use the rollers and the wind trainer.
