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)

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.

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?

Pistas are overrated!

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

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...

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.
