Kinda sexy and stealth, no?

    That’s HOT! I don’t think I own one piece of clothing (or bike) that isn’t black! So yeah, an easy LIKE!

    The frame and forks look OK but the components look cheap and nasty. It really needs some decent parts on it…

    So you get a black Pista frame and put black rims and components on it. So whats the big deal.

    I thought the chrome was what set the Pista apart from other off-the-pegs? That looks like a generic 299 dollar fixie. That seat is especially horrible.

    What I want to know is why almost every fixed/singlespeed needs to have such tight clearances? Fine for dry riding and the velodrome, but blows for bad weather when the option of fenders or more rubber would be nice. Not saying they all need clearance, but a few would be nice.

    The Pista, although a ground breaking bike, has always struggled to develop itself as something truly unique and has often relied on gimmicky color changes. Personally, I was under the impression that the whole ALL BLACK thing was played out. Most riders I know that started getting into fixies a handful of years back were doing all black. Sleek, sexy and flashy is where it’s at now. I think Bianchi could have done better to simply streamline the bike (like they do with their higher end Pista). Those bars and that stem are uggo…just like the seat…and the fork. Sorry, not to be too negative, but I’d like to see Bianchi try to sexify that bike and keep up with the times.

    I think the chrome looks miles better.
    The black looks like something you’d buy at walmart.

    The ‘Smell the Glove’ Pista?

    doesnt do anything for me.

    you wanna know why their are so tight clearances on the track bikes? because they were made for the TRACK.

    Bright colors are better for being seen by people not paying attention in automobiles. I’ll take bright red…

    well, humanoid, it is a pista. it was traditionally a track bike. if you wanted something with clearance, you should maybe look into a touring rig or a cross bike. they are made for bigger tires. Bianchi’s been around for a long, long time. i highly doubt that forgetting to build the bike with higher clearances on a track bike was high on their priority list. get a life.

  16. FryeJune 14, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    Just another all(most) black fixie, yippie!

  17. ...get a life?June 14, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    well, adam, it is a pista. Bianchi knows people arnt buying pistas to ride around the velodrome, theyre buying them to jump on the fixed-gear bandwagon. so its perfectly reasonable to wonder about more realistic modifications on such a bike than “oooh now its black isnt that cool.” get a life.

  18. humanoidJune 14, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Ha, ‘…get a life?’, well said; I guess adam’s life includes flaming strangers for no good reason. I’m liking my life.

  19. humanoidJune 14, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    ‘Tim’ how many people ever ride their ‘track bikes’ on a track…?
