I own a 2001 Bianchi Pista and within the past week whenever I go over bumps in the road or when I brake hard I hear and feel a "clunk". What could this be?
Thanks in advance!

If its when you use the front brake it could be that the wheel is damaged/out of tru, it could be slightly scratched which means the pads are hitting some metal or the headset/fork/handlebars may be loose.
If its when you use the rear brake it could be that the wheel is damaged/out of tru, or it could be slightly scratched which means the pads are hitting some metal.
The wheels could also be loose.

I'd say headset is loose.....stand in front of your bike with your knee on the wheel and push and pull the handlebars back and forth....if you can feel that its loose then there you have it.
