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)

Help a noob please!

I try to search/dig out information as much as I can on my own before resorting to asking questions. If there is a thread on this or if the info can be found elsewhere, excuse this thread.

The only question I have is: What is the chain width on a stock 07 Bianchi Pista? 1/8" or 3/32"?

I know, I know, it seems like a question with an answer that can be reached easily! Guess what? I've called over 20 (22 to be exact) Bianchi dealers today and 70% of them tell me 1/8", 30% tell me 3/32". It's beyond me why a dealer wouldn't know this information, but I KNOW you guys can help me out, as you always do.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

99.9% it is a 1/8, unless someone installed the wrong chain

You can always put a 1/8th chain on a 3/32 gear but not the other way.

Thanks for the help guys. I was actually told by a LBS and sold a 3/32" COG. I myself was almost positive it was 1/8", but I knew I'd get some back up on here. Thanks guys!

Edit: Correction, it's 3/32"...
