I bought it like that. The seller was from CA (ebay purchase), if that helps any.

My Pista:

Sugino 75 crankset
Dura-Ace stem (with magically hidden binder bolt!)
Airwing bullhorns
Flite saddle

Probably next to be replaced are the wheels or fork, depending on what the winter project needs.

Two Pistas, different geometries!?

Here's my rig. Not sure if it's a UO-8 or a PX-10, but she rides like a dream. Found it at workingbikes pretty much intact for $60. Bought a cheapy wheelset from NYCbikes, added 17t cog & lockring from Yojimbo's, and Vittoria 28's. My favorite ride, all for ~ $200 total. The cotterless cranks have held up for almost 2 years. I've been putting it away for the past few winters, but I've been riding it so far this year. My question is, should I put it away if I want to keep it forever, or are there ways to winter-proof it? Someone suggested electric tape and spraying wd-40 on moving parts. Is that enough?

It was just a joke, mostly because there are quite a few on this page (and I know Paul and Pista).

my newest build. snow/ice bike. schwalbe 38mm studded tires. gawd dam dem studs are sharp! now all i need is some snow or ice. in the warmer months i plan to get some equally fat cross tires to use it as my all-terrain fixie, theres great trails around here. geared at 38x17 for obvious reasons! i hope my SS MTB doesnt get jealous!

Very cool bike- Hey I got some pink sidewall conti GP 3000s new in the box that would look perfect on the sexy beast- I'd trade for another pair of tires if you wanted, my boy-bikes are too insecure for pink tires in this city... :o

ink1373 12-23-04 01:07 PM

ooh, ooh...PM coming about those tires. i've been looking for a set for a while. i even started an obnoxious thread to figure out what they were.

ink1373 12-23-04 01:09 PM

hm...nevermind, you aren't set up for it. mail me at ink1373@excite.com and we can work something out. my boy bike is definetly secure enough for pink.

ZenNMotion 12-24-04 12:09 PM

They are Continental Grand Prix 3000, Telekom (or T-Mobile) pink colored sidewalls, 700x 23c, Gray silicon tread, set of 3, new in box. Originally purchased from Sean Kelly's website/shop in the UK. They still have orange ones, but no more pink. Good tires, but I've never mounted them yet. ZenNMotion@yahoo.com. I'll reply after Monday.

Jonny B 12-24-04 03:01 PM

Sean Kelly has a website/shop?! Where? URL?
