NBD 1996 Bianchi Volpe

New bike day for my wife! She got a 1996 Bianchi Volpe, and itís a nice one!

Owned by a recently retired, long time bike shop employee who is ďthinning out the herdĒ.

Itís just about the cleanest used bike Iíve ever seen!

This style of the Volpe was my fav. The bike oozes price performance vibes.

Tange infinity tubing, RSX triple, all the mount points, time for a cross country bike tour... or at least down the west coast.
