I try not to count other people's cog teeth in public. I spoke with the owner and he told me the rear is 20. Regardless, 60t is something I can still marvel at. Especially one that beautiful.

At first you see the beat-up paint and you assume it's just a ****ty ten-speed conversion. But then you notice the horizontal dropouts and lugwork and you start to wonder what it is. Hmm.

The frame is beautiful, but it is overly gaudy/too much with all the other pink.

Swap out all the pink on the wheels (rims/tire/hubs) with plain ol' silver and you got a winner!

I agree I really like pink bikes but you have to balance it out with white and chrome.

I would ride this pink bike:



The above example looks like it's missing a Barbie decal and a Toys R Us price tag.

Couldn't agree more, a wheel change will make that look fantastic.

I think the Toyo Godzilla Scrod built for his sponsored rider is the tits.

^ I know that the Bianchi celeste color and the word Pista is really played out, but that white/celeste Pista Concept is sweet.

Classics don't get played out

I don't even like modern bikes but that Pista Concept is sexxay.

Just noticed the City Grounds sticker on there, and the fact that the tires are not lined up with the valves. Less appealing, but could be an easy fix to Pron 2.0
