    Pista Porn

    I did some upgrades recently and snapped some photos of my Pista. I was able to find the hard-to-find Cinelli track bars and stem. I also stumbled upon and brand new Selle Italia Alpine saddle that I've never seen before. Overall I'm digging the build. Want to move to clips next and then I'm thinking about a Campy crank. Can't wait to take it to the track. Anyway, thought you folks might appreciate some pics.

    I know but in the Bike Porn thread you're not suppose to post your own bike and I thought the Pista thread was only for Pista Concepts. In the end, who cares. It's a forum.

    I didn't mean to steal his thunder - I just thought it was cool he posted up his modern pista w/ similar saddle (color), bars and grips.

    Pista porn sounds like a crazy fetish. I like it.

    That is gorgeous! I love that frame. If I ever stumble upon one I'm definitely grabbing it. Well done.

    to op

    i really like your build. withe the gum wall tires, cinelli fork (looks great!) and white parts. definately need an all silver crank though.

    also this is the first chrome pista ive really noticed looks better with the decals than stripping them off

    I like the white fork. Is it the stock fork painted, or is it something else?

    I think the black chainring is ok. You don't want your bike to be too shiny.

    What tires are you using?

    The fork is a Cinelli SuperCorsa and the tires are Veloflex Pave.

    I prefer the look of a quill stem and the fork is a Cinelli SuperCorsa.

    Why are you going to switch from SPD's to clips and straps?

    So jealous, I have the road version from the same year. I would love to find one of these to match.

    I'm riding to work so I'd like to just wear my regular sneakers and not have to carry around a second pair of shoes. Makes it easier.

    True, but if you remove a link and slide the wheel forward, it will be closer to the seat tube and make for a cleaner look, at least in my opinion.

    I agree and I've been thinking about doing it.
