This is my 53cm 2003 Bianchi Pista. Stock fork, stem and frame obviously. A flipped and chopped set of lightweight drop bars, Truvative Elita cranks @ 165mm, a new Cane Creek S2 headset because I destroyed my Aheadset one a few months back.
Just traded up from my stock Bianchi hub & Mavic CXP22 wheelset to some non-machined Velocity Deep V rims laced to custom Phill Wood anodized hot pink hubs. 32 hole in the front, 36 in the back. They were built up by Marcus at Yojimbo's Garage here in Chicago. www.yojimbosgarage.com. Phil Wood hubs ride like butter.
I opted for some Crankbrothers Eggbeaters in lieu of toe-clips because I just never liked being strapped in.
Geared at a comfortable 48/16 for Chicago streets.
This is my daily rider. And I love it/her to pieces.
