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)

2009 Bianchi Pista

My 09 Pista. I've been riding it for about a month and it handles so much better then my conversion. Just installed the saddle, hopefully it's more comfortable then my original.









Let me know what you think!

You get my personal seal of approval. I like the stripped down chrome pistas, but I also like them with labels. Congratulations, that's my second favorite chrome pista on BF. One thing, though, why bother getting such a nice wheelset when you run risers? Oh, to hell with it, it looks cool!

I'd seriously consider switching to some steel or alloy toe clips, otherwise it looks like you're set.

i really really hate seeing such nice pistas with that stock fork. i understand that it's a good functional fork but it's just so incredibly ugly.

disregard the plastic clips and seat angle. but please regard the actual saddle and everything else.
