Thanks! The upgrades are going to take a while because I'm in the process of paying off a Super Pista to build, but I'm trying to spread the love to all my bikes equally. haha

this thing looks great and i admire your plans for it. a bit pricey but it'll be really nice considering most people with these don't take them very seriously. i like it!

Thanks! Yeah, I've always thought great components on an alright frame is better than alright components on a great frame, and eventually I'd like to swap most of the components I plan on getting for this onto a vintage Italian track or Japanese Keirin frame anyway

Love your decision to go threaded. I've always felt these pistas needed a threaded cockpit.

Thanks! I hated that damn threadless set-up that it came with.

Nice! I plan to put track drops on mine soon, switch things up, cheers!

Thanks! I'd actually prefer to run compact drops but these are the bars that came with the bike and I haven't found suitable replacements yet. Track drops definitely look great though.
