Bianchi Pista 2003-Anyone have one yet?(4 posts)

Bianchi Pista 2003-Anyone have one yet?trout_bum

I ordered one of these around Thanksgiving, still waiting-Uggghh. The good news is my parents offered to foot the bill as my Xmas/Birthday gift.My shop said 3-4 weeks for 57cm size. Supposedly the first crop sold out before they even shipped. Anyone have an update?(LBS is probably sick of my weekly calls)! I've read Bianchi has supply issues-this true? Am I looking at February or what?

Like the new color, with "gloss" even. Enjoy it, I love my 2000.

You're in precisely the same situation as a couple of my buddies. I ordered my Pista back in early August and it arrived in mid September. Once I started riding it around, everyone thought it was the bomb and a few people placed orders for their own. They're being told anywhere from mid December to mid January, so sit tight and don't cancel your order. It's worth the wait!

fixed, the new big thing?desmo

Amazing. When I bought mine last November Bianchi's US warehouse had 2000's and 2001's in abundance. My LBS got me a 2000 for $475. On top of that UPS bent the rear wheel. Their warrenty dept. had no more 36 hole CXP's and popped for Open Pros. Wadda deal.
