Dude around here was riding one in a triatholon when the carbon blades failed in turn causing the rims to explode. Long story short, he lost his ear and road-rashed half his face to smithereens.


WTF. I had no idea you registered. Welcome to HB, faggot!

You should put some pics up of our bikes. I'm on a shitty iPad and don't know how to get the image properties.

Road 24 miles today. Feels good man.

So Ive been riding just a cheap road bike conversion for about a year or so. I was thinking about asking for a new bike for graduation. How do you guys feel about Bianchi Pistas? Ive heard mixed things about the more recent models but mostly good overall about the brand and quality. Ideally i would like to get a Pista and an aerospoke cool cool

razz cheap steal frame with road drop outs ---> cheap steal frame with track drop outs. On top of that you want to add a $300 anchor and call it a front wheel. Go for it, brah, though it makes no sense at all I'm sure your street cred will go through the roof. Don't forget to learn some sweet fixie tricks though..........

Yes, Aerospokes are really heavy and are just a fashion statement. You are better off with either carbon wheels (If you can afford them.) or regular 700c wheels.

It's a great bike. Good frame, decent parts. You get what you pay for.
I've been riding my 2009 Kilo TT for a year now and I love it.
However, once you get it, you'll have the desire to add better parts.

yeah Aerospokes blow, if you have money like that to toss at an ugly front wheel, go for some nice rims instead

depends what you want? if you're looking better than deep v's you're probably going to be building the wheelset. I have a set of profile hubs that I absolutely love (now on my brothers eighthinch) laced to deep v's but if you are looking for something even nicer but still rideable on the street I'd point you in the direction of Mavic's. Either open pro's or MA40's but H+Sons are nice as well. As for hubs I'd go with Phil Woods, Dura Ace, Profile or GranCompe

I'm working on getting a new headset/handlebars. I love my fixed gear.

Such a great experience riding with no brakes and all.

I moved up my seat about an inch and a half. Wow, much better experience and I think i have way more control of the bike. Track stands are 10 times easier and before when I wore jeans they almost wanted to ride up haha.
