Have you tried or have you put 28mm tires on this bike?

TimH says:

I've not tried 28's. They might fit between the chainstays but it would be close and are certainly too wide for my brake calipers which are not stock. There should be clearance in the front with the stock fork but the one on this bike is not stock so I could not say for sure.

How are the wheels now? I've read about how they will un-true easily :/

I have about 1200 miles on the wheels and had them trued for the first time last week. If the roads are reasonably smooth where you live and you are under 200 lbs then I wouldn't worry about it at all. If you are heavy and/or the roads are bad in your area then they probably won't hold up.

Clean and practical. Ever consider running a freewheel?

I probably should have a freewheel for coasting down the hills here in North Georgia. The stock wheels had a freewheel but I just never bothered to put one on the new wheels.

I am 5' 8". The stock track bars had brake levers on the tops. The road bars moved the levers way out in front and so I replaced the stock 120mm stem with a 100mm stem. I'm not flexible by nature and the bike still seemed long to me but I got a little more used to it as I rode it some. Still might try an 80mm stem just to see how it feels.

somehow the geometry of bianchi pista 2015 seems kinda different with the previous version.

TimH says:

I think you are correct. Head tube angle especially is more relaxed than some previous years and with the low offset fork the the bike has lots of trail. This is one of the reasons why I want to change the fork - more offset = less trail = quicker handling.

Ah I remember seeing this in bfssfg. Good to see it's coming along nicely, very clean. I'd still opt for a lugged for imo.

Nice the way it is.I like the street drops/"hidden brake levers" The Rubino tires you are looking at are nice but wear VERY fast. The Zaffiros are good for everyday. Bell is good to see too. People react much better to a little Dingaling. Enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the compliment. I've used high end tires for duathlon and aggressive club rides on road bikes. Replacing tires is just part of the cost of doing business for me. The Rubino's have a very supple ride.
