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)

Where can I get an older model the Bianchi Pista in Chicago?

I've looked through the bianchi dealers on the bianchiusa site, and checked out most of the stores. they either only have the new 2009 bianchi pista or the concept. Anyone have any ideas?

Rather than buy an older Pista that may have some street-cred built in, buy your street-cred seperately and apply it to whatever bike you have. From an old ebay auction:

"I have too much street-cred and need to make a little extra cash.This is a great opportunity for anyone just starting out in the messenger world that doesn't really know how to fit in, or what city is the most hard-core. You will be able to tell people that we are bros, that you are down with real-life bike messengers, that you have totally partied with us, and be able to boast wild stories of how gnarly a ride was. I will even include spoke-cards and descriptions of races so that you can tell wild stories about being there,broken toe straps,well worn raceing shirt,waterproof socks friend invite on myspace and a broken frame(raleigh team frame that has been mashed way to hard) This will undoubtedly help you build even more street cred! Happy bidding and let me know if you have any questions about my cred"

Which shops did you find Pista Concepts in the Chicagoland area? I called all over my area and everyone is sold out and are giving me responses such as "Bianchi is sold out completely"
