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)

Cinelli Vigorelli vs Bianchi Sei Giorni

Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying a new bike. Opinions on which one to go with?

What parts are on each bike and is there a big cost difference between the two?

I'm just looking at the frames to start with. The Cinelli frame is $799 and the Bianchi is on sale for $899. The Bianchi is a complete bicycle but I'd switch out parts for better ones. Here's the link to the Bianchi...

It'll be my first fixie, I usually ride a road bike. Do you have any other recommendations for other bikes I should look at?

Thanks!

Riding a ghost bike is bad mojo.

I have not had the chance to kick my leg over a Sei Giorni so I have no input there. But I do have a Vig and its a nice bike. I believe its going to have a more relaxed geo compared to that Bianchi. Personally I like the relaxed geo and my Vig is very comfy and I can ride it for days. If you look harder you can find the vig a lot cheaper. The Vig is a nice bike, but honestly I think the MSRP price is a little steep.

Flip a coin; which bike do you wish for in the end? That's the one you want.

If you want my honest, absolutely unbiased answer, I would tell you to go get a vigorelli out of the two.
Here's a random picture to better illustrate my point.

I would pick the Cinelli over the Sei Giorni any day.
