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)

Chrome parts for a Bianchi Pista

I have a new Pista. It's pretty, but the fit isn't quite where I'd like it to be. Can anyone point me to a good source for chromed stems and pursuit bars?

Fine. The haters can hate. Now, where can I get a cheap, shiny 130mm -17 degree chrome stem and some shiny, shiny pursuit bars? I live and ride in the burbs, and I want to be adored for my quirkiness and bling.

Doesn't the uber brakeless SS san fransisco hill bomber dj cat scratch or w/e his name is ride a pista? I can't imagine why anyone would assume that we are going to make fun of someone jsut for having a pasta.

hmm a new account named fakenger with a pista asking for information on chrome "pursuit" bars and a -17deg stem. How could anyone possibly think this was a fake.

yo check the DIY post they have a way of un anodizing parts, so you can get a reg nitto 21 pursuit bar and then just DIY for shiny parts
