    S.A.S.S. is "Shiny Ass Single Speed"
    B.U.S.S. is "Butty-Ugly Single Speed"
    B.O.S.S. is "*****en Orange Single Speed"

    Good job! Copied from another post

    I don't think Bianchi has ever officially said what the letters stand for...



    1998 B.B.S.S. bright orange usually referred to as B.o.S.S. or bit~hin orange single speed


    1999 B.B.S.S. (kawasaki green) usually referred to as B.a.S.S. or bad @$$ single speed



    2000 B.u.S.S. (brown w/gold), I think it means brown or bianchi ultralite single speed (was 1st to use Easton Ultra Lite tubing)


    2001 C.u.S.S. (traditional Bianchi green) celeste ultralite single speed


    2002 D.I.S.S. (matte black) disc integrated single speed


    2003 S.I.S.S. (primer grey) steel, idiot! single speed (D.I.S.S. still offered as a frame-set)


    2004 S.A.S.S. (chrome) Shiny @$$ single speed

    Wow! My post has become reference material? The wingding got replaced by a "B"... here is the original thread:

    Bianchi's '98-'99 singespeeds are probably the only bikes to ever use a wingding in the name...
