    Silver Alex rims laced to Bianchi/Formulas
    Vittoria tires still have life, rims are very true.
    Truvativ cranks, 51t, 49t or 42t chainrings.
    90mm Specialized stem
    MKS pedals, no clips or straps unfortunately.
    Bianchi Pista Saddle
    FSA 1 1/8" Headset black, Aluminum black seatpost.
    Chaintensioners, ive fit a 38c in the rear triangle no problem

    It's a pretty generic bike, how much are they charging you for it?

    I read in another thread that a batch of those frames were built with off center stays.

    Those frames suck! I returned to the Randall Scott for quality issues. Beside bad paint, the fork was a bit off and I had to use a long reach brake when they said it accepts SR. But the CC LR brakes barley fit, I mean barley.

    Now both frame had screwed brake bridges. Both frames had to be re-drilled to fit brakes as the wholes where too small. SR Shimano and Tektro brakes would not reach the rim. Using LR brakes form CC and Tektro would not fit unless the wheel was all the way forward with small 23c tires. Which ment you had to have a perfect chain length gear combo. I also think the seat stays where at a weird angle which made things worse.

    Nice looking bike, but CRAP quality! BD or Schwinn offer much nicer bikes.
