    Bianchi Timberwolf

    Can anyone tell me when Bianchi made the Timberwolf? It's a chromoly steel lug frame. Other than that, I know nothing.

    Bianchi Timberwolf

    I remember selling timberwolves when I worked at a shop in 97. I have a 97 Delanli, that came with a judy xc. Does it have a fork, because that would help date it. Also componet groups change year to year.

    The fork is a rigid model, no suspension. Femco wheels. STI Shimano thumb shifters. I'll have to look at the rest of the drivetrain and get back to you.

    If it has STI Shimano thumb shifters then it is probably earlier than 97, maybe 93-94 instead.

    Probably Pre-1995

    I worked in a shop that sold Bianchi, also, and I'm pretty sure Timberwolves quit coming lugged after '95 or so. If yours is lugged, than it's before that time period. If the lug points are at "three and nine" o'clock on the top tube and downtube, then it's a SuperSet frame, which they did in '94 and '95. Before that they used the standard lugset that has it's points at six and twelve o'clock on the top and down tubes. They also did that at the downtube/BB junction, as well.

    Timberwolves were the entry level mtb of '94, '95, and '96 seasons. Beyond that, I don't know, but I would assume that they still were an entry level bike.

    I just got a Bianchi timber wolf for forty bucks, would you say I got a good deal?, it all seems original and it's just a little scratched up but it works great!

    There's records in bikepedia for 94, 95, and 97

    But if you close your eyes it becomes so easy to see
