    Does anyone possibly know when they are putting this (Celeste) color out again??
    Thanks

    They are mainly pushing the blue/white, but I'm sure if you hunt around, you will find one at a shop or online.

    They have it for pre-order, but still don't know the date

    How do you know it's Pre-Order? It seems like you can just buy it outright now. Even if it's pre-order.... right there is your chance to snatch one up before they're all gone.

    they are available. most sizes are back ordered but he has a 59 in stock. bianchi has a container shipment coming in this week and that they will be available some time next week. so they are available just a tad scarce right now. thinking they should be readily available some time in april.

    I emailed them and they are backordered on most sizes (mine being 55). But thanks for the info @Nash, really helps give me an idea of how long i got to wait

    Why? Just the color/graphics? I agree, that I found the black 2010 Super Pista ugly, but the 2011 is nice. They fixed the seat clamp problem and cleaned up the look of the seat-tube quite abit. It's not all that different, but designwise, it's better.

    I didnt like how they used that nut on the seat binder would wouldnt they use a nice seat binder bolt like other bikes

    The biggest problem with the Pista Concepts was the seatpost collar cracking from over torquing. By changing it to a removable seat-clamp now, they fixed that problem of having so many of their frames become complete useless due to one little common mistake. I feel the new collar is integrated well into the frame and does not look bad at all.

    I've own two Pista Concepts in the past, and personally, I would rather have one of these 2011 Super Pistas than an old one.

    are you serious? the colorway is a blatant ripoff of the cinelli mash and not an aesthetically pleasing one at that.

    I don't understand why Bianchi can't get the color right.

    That blueish crap they call celeste these days is not correct!

    If we're gonna talk about the celeste color, and reference older Pistas, then this is the perfect time for me to pimp my mine:
    my celeste Bianchi Pista
    sorry, I had to do it :)

    I'll see your individual bike pimpings, and raise you a cluster: Bianchi di celeste

    If you look at the cluster, you'll see a wide range of shades - not just in large time periods, but year-to-year (and European vs. Japanese, and Euro market vs. North American market). Personally, I like the really old celestes, like this early '60s Specialissima:

    Although it might just be the red in the decals that sets it off.

    Those Pista's are the best. I love the ones with the stainless steel track ends

    Okay guys, found a 2005 pista concept in mint condition. Is it worth the investment, or should I wait on the new super pista in celeste?
