2007 Bianchi Pista Concept

Bought 25-9-15. Sold 7-8-16. Missing this a terrible lot... Was a lot of fun - and a real pleasure to both look at and ride. I never really thought i'd be so lucky as to own a Pista Concept... The seller was obviously a fucking idiot and completely ignorant as to how rare his frameset was - hence the old build in the pictures... He rode 44/20 with a coaster wheel and had a huge "Save The Track Bike" sticker on the top tube - I think that says it all...

Frame:
Bianchi Pista Concept 2007, 7005DB Tubes

Fork/Headset:
Bianchi Pista Concept I Cane Creek

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Shimano Dura Ace FC7700 TEAM I Shimano Dura Ace Octalink

Pedals:
Crank Brothers Eggbeater 3 SE

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
46/15 I Shimano Dura Ace I TA Specialities Alize Track I Izumi Track

Handlebars/Stem:
3T Rotundo Pro I Thomson Elite

Saddle/Seatpost:
Carbon I Thomson Elite Setback

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Mavic Ellipse I Continental Gatorskin 23c

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Mavic Ellipse I Continental Gatorskin 25c

Bike History

  1. Before (Like I bought it)
  2. After (Finished)

Current Stage Info:

I chose to black out everything on the bike to compliment the fork and avoid colorclashing between the Bianchi blue and everything else. Everything except for the crank and the seatpost was useless so, like my Cinelli Mash 2010, i practically had to throw everything out and start over. I really enjoy the result. Hope you will too!

Karl says:

Thanks a lot Raide! Well in fact i don't really know - it's just a china carbon saddle.. Costs something like 55$ on Aliexpress.

Thanks for you quick reply Karl.
I thought as much, I am a bit hesitant to buy one but might be a more sensible option considering dash and fabric carbon saddles are £225-370. All the best.

Exactly - and in fact they fits me very well. I haven't felt any pain in my bottom after riding with them ;)
