I hope the mods delete this. I'm pretty sure it's against the rules

Just got a Bianchi pista for my commute. Rode it thru heavy rains without any fear whatsoever. Plus they look pretty sweet and cheap compared to road bikes and an awesome workout.

I'll stick to gears, thanks... TN is way too hilly for fixed gear or single speed. Our winters aren't too rough anyway. However, I'm putting a road cassette on my MTB because I really don't need the 28 & 32t cogs on the back. I just need less spacing between individual gears. So I'm going with a 12-26.
