    Pinky

    I thought I would share my new SS. My brother-in-law bought me this frameset to celebrate the birth of my daughter. This frame also has special meaning as it was the GUSS that first started my love affair with the one geared world. Who knew father's get birthing presents too. It has been about 6 years since I have thrown my legs over a 26" bike. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I forgot how quickly the smaller wheels get up to speed and there flickability in the twisty stuff. Am I going back no but its nice to have options.

    Feel free to highjack this thread with other fellow Bianchi SS.

    Hope you enjoy!Pinky-img_4500.jpg

    I have the same crank/ring configuration on my SS. I need to get some pics posed. Looks good!

    That's the business.
    If you run WTB Mutanoraptor 2.4" (favorite all time 26" tire) you'll almost be in 650b territory.

    I know those fit 650b's just fine. You go even odder than SS and use them!
    Just a regular guy.

    Struggled with the idea of trying it as a 650b. In the end I felt it wouldn't be fair to test the platform without having a bike truly designed for it.

    Love the Lewis. I actually repainted my GUSS celeste after it got sand blasted during a race series. Bianchi made great SS but crappy paint.

    love it! i still have my PUSS frame kicking around, it was a pretty damn fun bike. Yours is far more clean, mine looks like it's been through the war (it has even been rewelded). I refuse to get rid of it, i even thought about building it up again with a spare set of 650b wheels i have kicking around just for shitsngigs. The noir crank looks sweet on there, i love the pink on pink on pink.

    I f***in' love it .

    I have a WUSS, but the more I see the pink, the more I like them. I would proudly sport that bike .

    Thanks for the complements. Your chainring matches the cranks perfectly. I think I need a cog to complete the package.

    Bianchi does 650b! Don't fret for a moment about throwing some 650b wheels on your PUSS, Bianchi SS eat them up; it improves them significantly, here I am using 2.35 Nevegals. Of all the Bianchi's I think the SASS is the best looking and the PUSS the most avanguard. Either way you can't go wrong.

    Nice thread. I always keep an eye out for a Bianchi frame, cuz they fits me 650bs really well.

    Great bikes.

    Holy hell. That pink one is fire. All of them are sex. I want one. I think I'm going to bead blast my Kona and matte black it with some pink components. That sht would be tight.

    Nice, i have yet to weigh mine, but i'll report in when i find out in the next couple days. Im hoping for ~17

    Have had it for a couple years, but i'm falling back in love with it over this summer so i replaced all the old components with carbon stuff (skewers/stem/seatpost/bars) and trying to get it as light as possible... I'm really curious to see how light you can get these easton ultralite frames to be. They are retarded light to begin with, so it makes for a great build.

    I'll update as the progress goes... as for now, i swapped the mallets for some egg beaters... My only other options is seat,crank, and wheelset....We'll see what a seat does for me first before i dive into a new wheelset, although the wheelset is pretty light as is (fulcrum red metal)

    For now.... more pictures as it progresses

    I don't want another update until you do 650b. I'm almost certain that your Fox will fit them.

    Nice looking bike. I think I can get it lighter with a carbon rigid fork. The stock steel is a tank. The buil has been bulletproof.

    I love my PUSS sooo much, I just found another NOS frameset I bought as a backup.

    Umarth, I really want to throw a set of 650's on there especially since Stans starting making the Crests. Trying to finish a 16lb Niner A9C project first (yes, I know your 29er feelings).

    That made me dry heave. Because my ss29er is a full 10lbs heavier.

    Please let me know if this is inappropriate sounding but I really love your PUSS. One of the prettiest ridable pink things I've seen

    The GUSS was where my love for Bianchi's started. I actually had it painted Celeste after a few muddy races killed the paint.

    I used the stock pink bolts that came with the crank but put a 1mm spacer to fill the space from the longer bolt. Good luck on your build.
