Yeah its a bit obtuse.

Yeah its a bit obtuse. Definitely not aggressive, but its comfortable. Being with this bike a while has definitely made me lust hard after keirin frames with their steep angles and super tight geo. That’s a project I’m working on very soon...

Yes indeed. When I bought this one a few yrs ago, I think they also had an orange and pink model, and the celeste you mentioned. Recently I’ve noticed blue frames showing up on the street here too.

The more I look at it the harder I believe this is a Bianchi

Haha, so someone is

Haha, so someone is licensing Bianchi name in Japan? Every Pista frame you will see here is like this though. It's not entirely out of the question, happens with lots of other products. Shit, you can still get Zima in bars here.
