Pista means Track in Italian and Bianchi’s fixies are very definitely in a traditional track bike style. The frame geometry and head-down bum-up approach are ready to race. They are also beautifully made and as close to a work of art as most fixie freaks would ever care to own.
The Pista and the Pista Via Condotti both share the same Bianchi double-butted steel frame and start retailing for about $1,000-odd.
The Dalmine (shown below) has an aluminium frame and even some brakes.
Last in the series is the Pista Via Brera, a steel frame fixie with flat bar, brakes and demure tan finish which Bianchi is marketing as “mocha”.
