CHEERS

Bianchi “ Veloce” oversize and manipulated tubing steel frame built with Bianchi Chromolite ( rebadged Dedacciai tubing). Carbon fork. Paint and decals in excellent condition.

55cm. centre to centre seat tube, 56 cm. centre to centre top tube, fits approx. 5’10” – 6’ 00. a tad either way depending on personal taste. Seat in pictures set at 5’10” as a guide. If not sure of bike fitting dimensions that can be done.

Campagnolo Veloce 27 speed groupset set. 3x9. Ergo levers, brakes, triple crankset, crankbolts, rear gear changer, bottom bracket. Daytona front gear changer.

KMC chain.

Bianchi branded ( rebadged ITM) seatpost, handlebars and stem. Selle Royal saddle with a tad more padding than an all out race saddle

Wheels. Rebuilt with unused N.O.S. Miche racing oversize hubs, DT swiss spokes, Mavic CXP 14 deep profile rims. Campagnolo pattern Miche 9 speed cassete. Tires like new.

This is a super stiff handbuilt in Italy rocket covered in Campagnolo that’s as Italian as it gets with not a lot of use. Spent much of it’s life being moved from A-B in a garage. Completely rebuilt from the ground up, nothing to do or spend, no nasty surprises at the bike shop.

If you want to ride at your own pace, it sounds like a good bike at a good price.
-If you want to keep up in group rides, you may need to look for something lighter. Just my opinion.

a 22 lb bike like the one the OP is speaking of is not going to be a deciding factor in you keeping up or not,

your fitness and ability to ride in a pack is all you need for most group rides. Im guessing the OP isnt looking to do much racing or he’d be on the waiting list for something carbon from Specialized

ive done back to back loops , timed, on my S Works Tarmac and then the next day on my old school Colnago steel 22 lb bike. The only difference was the tall gearing on the older bike meant i had to grind upsome hills i could spin up on the Specialized and this cost me a few seconds but everywhere else they were darn close

not saying the old bike rode as well or was as fun to ride as the new one, - and the new one was worth the money, just saying the equipment did not affect pure speed nearly as much as i thought it would

read my rebuttal to that - the bike you are referencing is a good bike, maybe a little high, id be happier paying 450-500 for it but the market is still tough in some areas.

the bike wont holdyou back u less you are racing at a cat 3 level or so - it would be out ofplace in a criterium with a triple up front, admittedly

The asking price is clearly too high but might be a nice bike if it's perfect and you can get it down to $450 or so. It's a decent steel frame, though tire clearance may be limited by today's standards. Veloce was probably the lowest end Campy sold on a production bike in the US. Due to the Campy specific freehub, you won't have an easy path to upgrade to a reasonably priced modern group. On the other hand, if the components are in great shape you probably could get several years of good service. Seller seems pretty proud of it, may sit awhile unless he gets lucky with an uninformed buyer.

MIrage was OEM on several models of SpecializedAllez’s and Giant CF bonded bikes in the early 90’s. Veloce 9 speed is actually pretty nice

It’s all about the bike. You need to spend $12,000 at least and another $700/900 on kit.
