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)

Bianchi Hub Stripped

You guys told me not to buy one but i did. Got a complete rear wheel of a stock pista for 40$ to last me until i built my rear wheel up, sounds like a deal right? Lockring thread stripped under normal use. Dont buy these unless you either dont want to ever change your ratio or dont mind a lock tight wheel.

And thanks for the the help to all the raleigh q's. I will be posting my finshed (now blemished) Robin Hood next time the Brit bike thread appears.-c

what year pista? I think 04 and earlier versions used non-windowed formula hubs, or at least that what it looks like on my GF's bike. No probs thus far.

they look like iro/formulas but once your look/ play with the threads you can feel it is a much softer allum.
The bike was an 06' i think.
