just recently became a fan of good Bianchi Pista Concept builds. Is it rare in the US? because thinking of cop one if I'm in there. Sorry for the silly question, your Pista Concept is really nice!

You would have to source one used. You can't just walk into a store to find one anymore. It might be difficult to find a frame quickly on a short trip.

How does your ratio feel on flats and climbs?

lukebaumstark says:

its enough on flat to get going and its bearable on climbs. the ratio itself is about 81 gear inches or something like that? ive considered dropping it down to a 16 on the rear but i keep reminding myself it is street ridden and find it unnecessary to do so haha.

Yeah. Unless it's virtually flat where you live, it probably is unnecessary. Your current ratio sounds perfect though.

great setup and photography!

just curious, how do you get the bike to stand like that with nothing supporting it??

lukebaumstark says:

Thank you! It was held up by a large rock and my friend photoshopped it out. If you look closely you can see that one of the pedals is positioned flat because it was on the rock.

lukebaumstark says:

Thanks! I'm 5'9" my inseam is about 30-32? Short with short legs. I've ridden my friends 57 it's not too much bigger at all just a little bit longer reach and slightly bigger stand over.
