Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

sorry, there you go. Also, some are fuzzy, as my digital camera sucks.

I like the protector you have on the top tube...I typically justuse extra bar tape for that, but yours looks great...Where did you get it? What brand is it?

depressed -- just got my new thompson x-2 stem in, only to realize that it's 31.8 clamp size is too big for the syntace bars. Boo. now I have to wait for the regular "elite" stem to come in...

unless someone can recommend a track drop with 31.8 diameter.

Seatpost cost more than the frame. Almost eveyone of your parts cost more than the frame. I love it.

Deda Pista Oversized. In matte black. Dead sexy. Mates well with the Deda Newton Pista stem.

I have the regular steel Deda Pista drops. They are burly and strong.

Juvi-kyle has the hook-up.

P.S. You can get the Deda Pista steel bars directly from Bianchi for $29. If you're into that.

For some reason those pedals are drop dead gorgeous.

Btw, if you ever, you know, find some drops you want, I'm willing to buy those syntace off you. You know. If ever.

What an aesthetically lovely frame treatment.
Bianchi should do that again.
