    Building a Pista Concept

    Im builing a 2006 Pista concept frame. Im going for a celeste / silver / white color scheme. I want to see if I can get white decals. I dont want to go with any carbon except for the bb.

    This is what im planning:

    Fork- Brushed Aero aluminum undecided
    Wheels- Campy Pista hubs laced to Mavic Open Pro rims -front either triple cross or radial
    Crank- Campy Pista, with Campy Pista bb
    Saddle- Bianchi Fizik Arione
    Stem- Thomson silver oversized 130mm 10 degrees
    Seatpost- Thomson silver
    Heatset- Campy Pista integrated
    Tires- ? something extremely light, clinchers
    Bars- ? something anodized silver oversized
    Pedals- ? either Campy Pista clipless or clips and straps

    I want to know what you thinkand if you would change anything.

    Alum fork and stem...**** you are not goin to be able to ride this bike on the street. That will be the most uncomfortable bike ever. You better go with a plastic seat while your at it.

    edit: I didnt even get to the radial lacing/ you are goin to die

    what kind of moron would ride clips and straps on the track and worry about power transfer?

    Yeah dude, totally... that power transfer to the front wheel is crucial.

    no way...the power transfer to the seatpost is way more crucial.

    Fork - Reynolds Ouzo Pro Track
    Wheels - Shimano Dura-Ace 7600 high flange hubs + Mavic CXP33s
    Crank - Shimano Dura-Ace 7710 crankset + Shimano Dura-Ace 7700 bottom bracket
    Saddle - Selle Italia SLR
    Stem - Deda Newton Pista
    Seatpost - Shimano Dura-Ace or Thomson Elite (depending on desired setback)
    Heatset - FSA
    Tires - Vittoria Crono EVO CS
    Bars - Deda Velocita
    Pedals - Time ATAC ... err, whatever you want that's secure

    Edit: this is pulled completely out of my ass. I'm a fan of Shimano for track components and the Deda stuff is quite nice.

    I've had a secret love for the Bianchi Concepts. I would buy one, build it, and enter a triathlon. Where I wouldn't run or swim. Just suddenly show up and blow past everyone in oxygen deprived wind tunnel form. The look on thier faces...

    Well yeah. It's a pipe dream and founded on only my love hate relationship with the tri folks around here. (We get a long fine but hack at eachother regularly).
