Second Life

In Yorkshire they would call this mutton dressed up as lamb. So it's a rescued 2001 Bianchi Pista made to look vintage with no regard to authenticity. In other words the more decals the better. Everyone seems to go mental over the crankset. And in car-collector parlance it's known as a trailer queen.

Reynolds 520, filllet brazed from Bianchi (USA)

Fork/Headset:
no name carbon

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Campy Pista

Pedals:
Shimano >gasp<

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Paul Components crank 50T, Velocity cog 17T, Miche

Derailleurs/Shifters:
che cosa?

Handlebars/Stem:
Modolo pista / Deda ahead

Saddle/Seatpost:
Brooks Red Swift HBPWC Philadelphia / Velo Orange

Brakes:
Dia Comp (don't hate me)

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Velocity wheelset / Veloflex 21mm gum wall clinchers

ditto

Accessories:
hand-stitched leather handlebar wraps from Ciclo Di Cuoio

More Info:
installation of the handlebar wraps takes about 2 hours and 27 iterations of the f-word
