    1999 Eros questions

    Up for auction on ebay is what I believe to be a 99 eros.
    Can you tell me if this frame was produced in Italy?
    Also is there a geometry chart available?
    Worth $ 400.00 can't tell exact condition from photos.

    thanks

    My kid had one of these when he was young. His was from 1996. As I recall it had 8 speed Mirage/Veloce. Not sure about whether it was made in Italy or not, definitely an intro level bike so it may have not been Italy but the build quality was good where ever it was made. My son's bike was a 650c because it was a smaller frame. Seemed to have pretty standard geometry. Unless there was a big jump in quality.component level between 1996 and 1999 that bike is overpriced. I bought his bike NOS for
    $500 and sold it for $350.

    Below is the sale flyer when I sold the bike in 2003:

    1999 Eros

    I own a 1999 Eros,I bought it new,and would never get rid of it.I also own a 2005 Pinella
    and a 2003 Fuji Team,and the last bike I'd get rid of is the Eros.It is everything I love about Bianchis.
    I have upgraded the group to Centaur/ Veloce,with Proton wheels,and a Profile BSC fork.
    I do not know what a 99 Eros is worth.But, I can tell you that if your happy with the price you'll love the bike,its great.
