Two New Fixed Gear Bikes from Bianchi
Shown above is the 2011 Bianchi Pista Dalmine, an aluminum framed bike with flat bar and carbon fork with alloy steerer. The crank has a 48T gear mated to a SRAM Torpedo rear hub (it allows for swapping between free and fixed by turning a bolt).
UPDATE 8/15/10: Initially, the U.S. will only get the Dalmine, and it’ll come with front and rear brakes and retail for $899.99. Dalmine is the name of a well known track located in Dalmine, Italy, that’s not far from the Bianchi factory. Also heard that Bianchi will be showing a few new alloy and steel track frames this fall…drool. Also, the pics are now larger and you can click on them to see full size!
Jump on past the break to see the Pista Sei Giorni…
The 2011 Bianchi Pista Sei Giorni, which translates to “Track Six Days” and is a tribute to the six day track races popular across the pond. It gets the drop bar treatment, a 48T crank with a 16T flip flop hub. It’ll come with a front brake, too (not shown).
Hat tip to Bikereviews for heads up on these.
