We now have two Bianchi Pista Concept frames in stock. Both are white with celeste graphics and include the carbon fork and headset (sizes: 51 and 53). I weighed the 53cm frame at 3.30 lbs. We can also build these up as complete bikes. Give us a call at (817) 924-1333 if you have any questions.

Free Colonel's Bicycles beer koozies to the first 20 people that request one. They work great with a Bud tall boy but that's the only beer I've tried them with. Bring beer when you come to pick yours up and we'll test em out on other brands. This will be done strictly in the name of scientific testing and the experiment will cease when the first person pees on the carpet!

Two great quality pumps that really work. The smaller one is the Lezyne Classic Floor Drive Pump, and the larger one is the Lezyne CNC Floor Drive Pump. We have been testing the CNC pump in the shop for the last several weeks. Mechanic Aubrey Williams aka Florida Williams (that's another story), swears that he can inflate a 700x23 tire from 0 to 100 psi in just 14 strokes. They both have long hoses and screw onto either a schrader valve or presta valve leaving your hands free to focus on pumping. The long hose allows me to inflate my tire at the trail head without removing the bike from the receiver hitch rack. The CNC pump features a larger aluminum barrel and all CNC construction with a gauge that registers 225 psi while the Classic has a steel barrel and registers 160 psi. Both pumps are great quality. I personally think that having a pump that goes from 0 to 100 psi in just 14 strokes is worth the extra money.
