Bianchi Super Pista Vs. Cinelli Mash Bolt

(closed)
I'm choosing whether to get the Bianchi Super Pista and the Cinelli Mash Bolt. I heard many great reviews about these two frames but don't know which one to get. I wanna get the Bianchi, but I just dont like the teal color on it. I wanna get the Cinelli, but i'm afraid that one of my fellow Fixed gear riders would call me a biter. Help?!?!

Then don't get the teal color, it comes in black and white as well. Who cares man, everyone who rides a track bike nowadays is just jumping on the bandwagon.

amen to that. its all about vintage road bikes now. :) :)

don't get a Bianchi if its not celeste. ! ..... anyways you shouldn't even consider a Bianchi if you call it TEAL

and they both ride the same, built in the same factory, probably painted by the same people

You could always get the Cinelli Mash Histogram. There is also other frames like Fuji Track Pro, Felt, or a LOW// if you could find one in your area. Try looking around for other frames within your budget.

LOL. Great reviews on the Bianchi Super Pista?

Do you realize how much that frame flexes?
OH, and for the record, it's also a super over-hyped alu frame.

If you're leaning towards the Bianchi go with the 2011 Super Pista its blue and white.

Neither.

Everyone and their mothers have these frames. Both are overhyped and not worth their ridiculous price.

Be original.

i wouldnt go as far as to say screw track frames. track bikes have their nice qualities too.
road bikes are definitely better overall, alot more fun imo.. but in all seriousness...commuting... riding track or.. the dreaded "fixie" is a hell of a lot more convenient with the lack of pieces to clean.

but sticking on subject.

save your money and get a visp :P

Slanted top tube or not I guess, get what you want they're both good frames. Who cares if it's "hype" it's your bike after all !

HAHA! Neither country is paying their workers correctly. So in other words thank them, cause if this were the states those $800 bikes will be much more.

Get which you want and the fuck out of it.

They'd be around 1.2k like a LOW. Not too much of a price difference. People would still buy them like crazy.

Richard, go to mccully, buy a nice bike. the end. preferably cannondale or giant. They always have caad10's on sale for like 1800. youll love it. or get a mountain bike, mountain bikes are dope. all your friends with stupid track bikes will have numb balls when they cruise down beritania st and that aluminum piece of crap chatters their balls until they cant make any more babies.

(if you live on oahu that is)

Also, every fixed gear in hawaii looks the same. If you get a non-aluminum bike and dont put a fucking dinner plate of a 55t chainring on it, youll be original.
