HAHAHHAHAHA! Concept....2006!

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

HAHAHHAHAHA! Concept....2006!

I think its funny because the seller is going to lose a lot of money since the auction isn't properly listed.

This is why you never buy anything from sellers with 90% feedback.

Nah man, it's a vestige of the short lived sport of cross-track - people would buy cross bikes, put "Pista" in hobbyshop decals on the top tube, take the brakes off and ride as fast as they could down hills.

At $20 it's almost worth buying just to leave the negative feedback.

The same seller has a Brava currently at $71 that looks legit, hard to tell from the photo though.

I looks to me like its intended to be humorous..at least whoever painted and stickered that frame meant it as a joke anyway. The seller probably doesn't know what they really have, nor what a pista concept even is. Anyone who would know what a pista concept is in the first place probably knows enough not to be fooled by that. I'm tempted to bid, just because I think it looks hilarious.

they are a company that sells items brought to them. THey dont necessarily know anything about any of the things they sell. Someone brought to them this bike with those markings, they did a quick google search for "pista concept" and copy and pasted the specs. It is totally wrong and the winning bidder has the right to take action against them since it was listed with horribly wrong info.

Yeah, you've gotta hold the back axle in with your hands and steer with your feet. Cyclo-cross-track is not for the faint of heart.

bargainland sucks balls. I won a digital camera from them a looooong time ago, and they didn't ship it to me because they said they weren't making enough money off the auction...the auction that I WON.

At least you don't have to worry about your chain line on your cyclo-cross-track-bike.
