The Bianchi Pista, one of the most popular fixed gear bikes on the market, will return as the Pista Steel once again for 2011.

The 2011 Bianchi Pista Steel is much the same bike as it was last year. The only big change is in the the color options offered for 2011: black/cream and white/gray.

Going the “retro” route, the Bianchi 2011 Pista Steel lives true to its name, as the frame is built from steel. Featuring FSA crankset, Shimano SS sprocket, RC drop bars, and a Alex track wheelset, the Bianchi Pista Steel is quite the bike.

Available very soon, if not already, to US markets. MSRP is $729.

Displayed in a a beautiful blue, white and carbon at InterBike is the 2011 Bianchi Super Pista.

If you compare the 2011 Bianchi Super Pista to the 2010 Pista Concept (which has been discontinued, according to Bianchi), the 2011 Super Pista beats its last year’s counterpart in size and strength.

Two colorways of the Bianchi 2011 Super Pista will be offered: blue, white and carbon (shown) and solid Celeste green (with carbon highlights). Available now at retailers as a frameset only.

Companies continue to add more retro specific road bikes to their lines, some for urban commuting or just classic road bikes. Another addition is the Bianchi 2011 Campione.

Some may say the 2011 Bianchi Campione is a little too old school with the shifters placed on the bottom tube, but for those riding an older bike and want to upgrade, the 2011 Compione is a perfect match.

The frame and forks on the Bianchi Campione feature chromoly steel, and the forks are straight blade (wish they were lugged). Other components are Shimano shifters, Bianchi Reparto Corse brakes, FSA Temp crankset, and Shimano 8 speed cassette. Releasing in metallic black.
