    2004 Bianchi Pista

    I'm going to buy a fixed-single road/track/street bike this summer. The most likely choice would be the 2004 Bianchi Pista. There's just one problem: where. I live in Finland and the Pista is a US model (and I don't believe that it was ever imported to Finland). So I'd need to get one from overseas.
    There might be another problem, because the model is two years old and many bikeshops might not have one in stock anymore.
    My question is: From where could I find one, and can this bikeshop ship the bike to Finland?

    Sheldon is one of the two places I've already found. The other one was Sid's Bike Shop in Manhattan, NY and the shipping would cost $ 370.

    Try the Evans cycle group in the UK.

    But the steep UK retail prices might cancel out any savings on shipping?

    Pista

    I work at a shop on Saturdays (just to feed my habit) that sells bianchi. I tried to order a couple about 2 months ago and they were out of stock. I called my rep and he said that bianchi is always low on inventory with these. I was trying to order the 2006 model so the 2004 is long gone.

    A Finnish shop just receaved their order of about a doezen 2006 Pistas. I guess I'll have to look for something less stylish.
