    Hey there from Tucson, AZ!

    Hey guys! I'm 23 tomorrow and I just bought a 96 or 97 Bianchi road bike. I'm absolutely in love with it. I just got it a few days ago and this crotch area pain is irritating. I'm hoping that it's just me breaking in my body. haha.

    Anyway, have an awesome week and I look forward to getting to some of you!


    John

    Hi John, eventually the pain goes away, honest . It could be the way the bike is set up though, so you may need to do some tweaking there.

    Welcome to BF!

    Sorry for the crappy quality, I don't have a digital camera so I took this with my camera phone.
    It's a Liberati custom track from Rome, Italy. I fitted it with vintage dura-ace ex track cranks 165mm. Also an NJS low flange dura-ace rear hub and NJS dura-ace high flange front hub to black mavic open pros.
    Then dura-ace seatpost, nitto bars and stem (36mm for squeezing through traffic), mks pedals with toshi double straps, with a WTB speed V seat, because in my opinion, mountain bike seats are more comfy.

    Thanks for the welcome East Hill.

    Even with the poor quality photo I can see that your bike's a beauty! Did you go to Rome to get fitted for it?
