Pretty much stock except for swapping out the 110 mm stem for a 90 mm stem, the 16t for a surly 17t, the road bars for a straight bar, and a different brake lever. I may put my white deep Vs on it but I want to enjoy the lack of extra weight for a while.

Thoose CST C1288 Tires

OK, just got the same bike about a week ago. Took it out the other day for its first ride (30miles) -other than around the block. Anyway as I am less than a mile from my house and Boom! -front tire blows out. Figured I'll just walk it home and deal with the flat tomorrow rather than fix it there on the spot. Taking a shower at home and I hear another BOOM... rear blew out. Both blowouts went right through the sidewalls. Didn't have them over-inflated... I guess what I'm getting at is are these tires that bad or were mine just sitting in a hot warehouse forever, or something to that effect?

RE: Thoose CST C1288 Tires

i got mine in january and rode on the stock tires for 3-4 months in chicago winter weather (except when there was salt on the road) and never had a flat. i put vittoria randos on in march and haven't looked back. i do remember those CST tires being really light and fast though. i may throw them back on there for the rest of the summer, given that i put my brake back on and won't be skidding through them. i think you just had some bad luck. they are pretty bottom-of-the-barrel tires though, admittedly.

This is the one you meant, right?

yep thanks!

yep thanks!

beautiful bike...

...the poster in the background, not so much. what a "shit show" coventry was!

ya, coventry sucked

but they're playing pretty damn well now! i'll post some updates soon. i've finally dialed in everything on this bike to my liking.


I'm assuming your cat sleeps on that couch. Love the old school styling of this bike tho. I'm considering the same one.

haha. ya, no cat...

but you can tell where i sit. ya, i never planned on owning a bianchi pista but as soon as i saw this one... anyway, i'm happy with it.

Replace the fork

It weighs as much as two deep-Vs....
