just noticed the problem yesterday. I am going to contact them out of curiosity, to see if the geometry was changed between the two frames, but either way, its not going to fix the problem. I believe I can solve it by going clipless, because my toe clips are indeed a little long.

do you know how to ****ing read? I have been riding this damn track bike for months, but when the frame was changed the toe overlap became more severe ... no overlap before, overlap after, same frame and size....not sure what is so damn hard to understand here.... you guys drive me ****in nuts

Where did you get this "new" bianchi?
If it was found on Craigslist, it could have seen a head on collision in the past.

I ride in nasty traffic jams every day, and have for years, and I can't say toe overlap has ever been an issue. If you are turning 90 degrees then your bike is stopped and you are walking it.

It's obvious that your saddle is too far forward.

What does saddle position have to do with toe overlap?

did you have a different kind of fork on the old frame, or stock on both?

You should have swapped for the San Jose.

What size frame do you have?

Track bikes are built for the track. It is why they are called track bikes.

Road bikes are made for the road. It is why they are called road bikes.

Decide if fashion over function is what you want. If you go with the track bike, quit yer b!tch!n' and HTFU.

No, Francis, we understand your gripe perfectly. You had toe overlap with old frame, you've got toe overlap with new frame. You claim it is worse now, claiming the new bike is somehow smaller.

If the new bike IS 3mm smaller, you'd feel it, assuming everything else is exactly the same; which it won't be. If your toe clips have moved a couple of mm's, your tires have more pressure in them, you've gained weight, changed shoes, changed riding habits, or just plain forgot about how much overlap you had with the old frame, you'd think hey! this new frame is smaller. Bianchi is ripping me off! I must post on forums immediately my EMO angst.

When you reported this problem to your LBS, what did they say?

If everything is really the same than it's obviously the geometry. Only your LBS can explain. Are you positive both framesets are the same model from the same year? I don't follow the pista too closely but they seem to look quite similar from year to year.

I do have a question though:

today I stopped in a track stand for a sec at an intersection and caught my toe, which is how I noticed the problem....I guess I can be super careful making sharp turns and not trackstand ever
Why are you hitting your toe on a trackstand? That's either not toe overlap or you're doing it wrong.

Oh I got it. I got that you bought a track bike and have no clue what a track bike is. And you are complaining about correct track frame geometry because you lack any ability to ride a track bike. I wouldn't ride a track bike without some level of overlap. And I ride in NYC. Seriously, grow a pair. Learn half decent bike handling skills. And grow a pair.

Perhaps the problem was with your old frame, not this new one. But yeah...don't trackstand. Ever.
