Pista - 3/32" or 1/8" parts?(9 posts)

Pista - 3/32" or 1/8" parts?trout_bum

I would tend to think that it would run 3/32" chain/cog/ring but I just wanted to double check since I'm new to this. I'm eagerly awaiting my 2003 Pista-LBS said it shipped Tuesday!
Thanks.

Pista is an appellation frequently used in track and fixed gear. Campagnolo Pista chainrings and cogs are 1/8".

But you can replace the cog and the ring with 3/32 and run 3/32 chain. If cog or ring is 1/8, then you need 1/8 chain.

Whoa. I asked the same question to Harris Cyclery and was told I needed 3/32 stuff so I ordered three cogs in 3/32. What gives?!?

I'm also awating my Pista but I haven't checked on it in over a month. I guess I should ask where it is about now. When did you order your bike?

I ordered mine the day after Thanksgiving-~Nov 27? It's a 57CM. Hopefully I can pick it up next weekend, and finally know the definitive answer to my part size questions. It could run 1/8 as the above post states. However I wonder about the new Elita Truvativ crank, which supposedly has a BCD of 130-you don't see too many 130BCD 1/8"chainrings available. I wish Bianchi would give just a little more info in their spec descriptions.

They probably told you that because they sell 3/32 cogs, and they work fine with 1/8 chain and 1/8 rings. Stock is 1/8, though.
