Bianchi Pista 2007 vs. Lemond Fillmore 2007

Hi there,

I've searched the forums but could not find any in depth info comparing these two specific bikes.

Basically I have 450 to spend on a fixed-gear, but cannot decide between these two! I will use the bike for leisure riding and the occasional 20-30 mile country ride.

I love the look of the Pista, more than I do the Fillmore, but I have a feeling the Fillmore would be a better all-round bike? However, I heard someone say that the Fillmore's bottom bracket wasn't suitable for fixed?

The Pista (53) seemed to fit me well (I'm 5'10 and have short-ish legs for my height), however I found that atfter about 20 mins my wrists ached a bit. Could this be solved by moving the saddle position and/or using different bars?

I'm not up on componentry, so would like some informed opinions about these two models and how they compare!

Many thanks,

John
