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)

Hmmm out of curios, is it sourced from alpina like the ones on concepts?

I wasn't aware of that. Maybe Scrod knows.

That is a very nice looking weave pattern. I admit to knowing next to nothing about carbon products but I enjoy the textured surface on some of them. Looking forward to seeing the bike built up.

Not sure. I asked Stephen Dolan a while back if the Bianchi forks were Alpina and he said no.

Thing is the fork on my Pista Concept looks a lot like the Alpina, including the transition about half way down the fork legs. About the only difference is the stated rake on the Bianchi fork is 28mm and it's 30mm on the Alpina. The new Super Pista fork lacks the transition and the crown area looks totally different.

The Fuji Track Elite used the Alpina Wing Pista fork.




I've seen that fork on EIMEI bikes, too
