|I was thinking about getting this group, but don't know anything about it? any experiences with it, good or bad?
I was going to put them on a Bianchi Pista concept.
|Back in the 80's, they were cheap Campy knock-offs||MR_GRUMPY|

|Think of them, as if Campy made a cheap Veloce track group.
The bottom bracket might be junk, but the rest will work fine.

|Had a pair of their pedals in the 80's. They were fine. When Campy didn't offer a budget line you bought as much Campy as you could and filled in with Miche and Ofmega.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

|I have the Pista cranks on my single speed. These are the 2002 models. Finish is nice and they work well. Their BB's okay but when it dies, I'll probably switch to a Phil or Shimano cartridge replacement.
Should cost you less than $80 including the BB (don't buy one as it comes with the crankset). I got mine with 170mm length arms and had the shop change the 48 Miche ring to a 44 TA track ring.

|I was wondering where you bought them? I saw a special at Chucks Bikes on a Pista group for $285 does that sound like a good deal?|
|I've never priced the groupset||boneman|

|I only wanted the cranks as I already had decided on the wheels and had all the other bits. I bought the cranks at Condor in London|| |
