2010 Bianchi Pista Classica

bianchi-pista-classicaFor those of you who weren’t so keen on Bianchi’s Super Pista, feast your eyes on the Pista Classica. According to Bianchi USA’s marketing manager:

The Bianchi Pista Classica is a steel frame with steel fork with chrome lugs, a chrome fork crown, drop outs, fork ends, BB, etc. It has beautiful details. The Bianchi Pista Classica will be available in frameset only and delivery is not scheduled until early 2010. No price is available as yet.

    damn that’s pretty

    Yep, that’s got way more soul than the Super Pista. Unless you are really using the frame for it’s intended purpose in the velodrome, you gotta go with the Pista Classica, hands down.

    I’ll miss you, savings account.

    Soul? It’s a generic frame with some celeste paint. Just buy the Soma Delancey or any of the other iterations of the frame and save the cash.

    THAT’s the celeste one I saw elsewhere! Mmmm…pretty.

    dang… thats purdy. I’m kind of glad there’s no price on it yet, because I can pretend I can afford it.

    that’s a really nice frame. nice lug work too!

    The straight fork destroys any soul this bike might have had.. ugly.

    So here are the important questions: Is this frame made in Italy like the very similar looking Dolomiti from Bianchi and what type of tubing? Could it be Columbus Spirit Tubing, like the Dolomiti? If that’s the case, this frame is gonna be serious. It shouldn’t be too expensive though. The entire Dolomiti with Campy Veloce components, etc goes for under $3000 so I would expect this frame to go under a $1000, which is a great deal. Let’s hope that’s the case, because I really, really want one.

    of course it is nice, but if you really look it at, its the same like a surly, made by maxway cycles, bah!

  13. fonzyNovember 19, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    Mikus, are you serious this frame is at 10000 miles from the surly, anyway, i have pretty much the same questions as Dave, particurlaly if it’s made in italy, and i hope so, because if it’s made in china like some of the pistas, it’s just pretty, and it would be a shqme …

    Any word on price?

  15. FedericoJune 27, 2010 at 1:29 am

    There is no way that its going for more than $750. Has anyone seen one around?

  16. FedericoJuly 13, 2010 at 2:48 am

    Word is that it was never approved for 2010 construction even if demand was gauged as high. The price point for the concept was going to be around $2,000 give or take. Worth every penny. Between the lug work, the beautiful flat crowned fork and the fact that this was going to be produced in Italy and not Taiwan.
