Hey guys first time poster here, I have been lurking the forums awhile now ever since I started riding and decided it was time to join up. I was always a car guy and still am with modding and upgrading my Audi and have posted in forums and everything but once I got into college I needed to find something to do and found that I loved riding. So my first bike was a 2010 Bianchi Pista Chrome, I rode it a lot but never really changed out anything on it expect for some wheels and handle bars. Here is a picture of it how it stood when I sold it.
It was a nice bike and I put loads of miles on it every day but I always wanted something a little newer and something I really could build up. So while searching Craigslist and other online sites I came across my new bike, also it was in my price range. The original owner rode it only a hand full of times and no longer rides so was looking to get rid of it. I made the drive from Minnesota to Chicago to get the bike. Some will say thats crazy but here in MN you don't see to many like this and its actually the one I wanted. Here is it.
Those are pictures when I first brought it home, it now has, new bar tape, and seat. I plan on upgrading the bottom bracket,crank and some other things.
its a 2013 Bianchi Pista Sei Giorni, Sorry for the not so short intro but I look forward into learning more about bikes and being apart of the community.
Last photo of both bikes together for the last time.
