I'm picking up a Bianchi Pista in the near future and wanna swap out the stock threaded fork for a steel threadless fork. I'm also curious about track specific wheelsets, I'd really dig a Mavic 5spoke wheelset or some other carbon fibre track wheelset

Skip the Pista if you're considering upgrades.Quack

If you have big plans for a hot track bike, I wouldn't pick the Pista as your foundation. Don't get me wrong, it's a decent bike and I own one, but it is considered entry-level in the track world. Crash it, bash it, and when you get smooth and smart, go high-tech. There are a couple pretty cool aluminum framesets that are available for the price of a complete Pista that will provide you with a better starting point for a hot track bike. Enjoy the track!
