Here's my cookie cutter cinelli
Am I stupid for paying retail for a 2012 Bianchi Pista from my LBS? I did the vintage Craigslist bike thing last summer and it was a headache start to finish, so I'm looking for something new and with a warranty. Will be riding single speed and not fixed gear FWIW.
it's an old road bike, so it has a more relaxed geometry than a track bike. the chain stays are longer, the seat tube and head tube angle are more relaxed. it would be all wrong if you wanted to race on the velodrome, but looks perfect if you are looking for a way to get around town!
And on that note, if anyone has a line on a mid to high-end late 80's Peugeot frame (56cm), PLEASE let me know. I currently have an 88 Ventoux but it does not belong to me and unfortunately for me I have fallen head over heels in love with it so I want something comprable to replace it.

Is far from finished (single speed at the moment)
Pake crank, Origin 8 (80cm) stem and Nashbar Bullhorn handlebars on the way.

Brakes for the Crash race since it involved many hills on open roads. I ran drops and no brakes obviously for RHC, just late to post . I didn't agree with it brakeless at first but once the group split up it was a ton of fun. Super happy we made it out there to race it, the Brooklyn scene was amazing

nice you raced!
whered you make the trip from?
what did you place?
2nd at Wolfpack and at RH I took 7th and my teammate took 10th. There was a nasty crash at the last corner so we had to take different lines. I have never wanted a 5th place so badly! Prizes were rediculous.
We're planning to do the RHC in Milan as long as we keep pushing for it! Id do these races 100000% over road racing. Less stress and I can drink the night before a race! Haha
