yeah i do realize the geometry is nice.
but that is exactly what i am talking about.
super tight geo (overlap and all), threaded components, less rake on the fork (f barspin clearance)
throw some nice silver components on there, nice mavic/lowpro wheelset.
any ideas? possibly keirin steel or stay italian?
It's not hard to change up a Bianchi Pista to make it "more track."
Here's a picture of mine and how I changed it.
Painted to shit and just a fuckin beater. Can't even ride it anymore, because the bottom bracket - chainstays creak.
Lets compare it to your Pista.
Notice the tire clearance from your downtube is different compared to mine? A simple fork/headset change made that difference. Change your gearing and take out a link in your chain, and it will bring your rear tire a lot closer to your seat tube.
And when someone said that you can sell your bike complete for around $500... They weren't lying. You'll get more money parting your bike out, as opposed to trying to sell it complete.
And it doesn't matter how long or how far you ride your bike.
If you make a mistake, you've made a mistake, own up to it and don't try to approach it with confrontation. It's the internet.
Switched out the Cinelli stem/3ttt Pistas to Nitto Pearl/B123s.
Also switched the RX-1s/MKS Doubles to Time Atacs.
Still need to re-pack my Suzue/Open Pro wheel set, then I'm gonna throw it on there.
But for now, Phil to B43/Deep V.
