New Rider from Bay Area

Name: James
Location: Fremont, Ca
Bike: Bianchi Pista

Just wanted to post up and do a basic intro. I recently got into cycling since a bunch of my friends have been doing it a while. Having tons of fun out riding around the bay area, and some parts of Sacramento also. I picked up this Bianchi Pista from a friend last year for super cheap, and even tho its too small for me its a great bike. Deff in need of Maintenance so I am trying to learn more about the different parts the bike so I can start figuring out what I need.



Based off of the color and parts on the bike I am guessing its a 2003/04 Size 51

Its pretty much original, but I did add GR-9's//Toshi's after tearing a generic single strap. I dont plan on doing to much to it because I dont feel the need to show off with expensive parts, but I am looking for a better saddle and I need to learn what size bearings are in this thing so I can replace those.

Thanks,

James

Yea, my guess is the chrome isnt cool enough for htem anymore. Its all about Super Pista's with tons of over priced parts on them. I love the bike! Will be doing the LIVESTRONG Challenge Davis ride on it in June!

Sold the Pista and bought a bike I actually fit.



Has a lot of random borrowed parts so I will post up a thread as I piece it together.
