Sad city bike

Most people (99 out of 100? 999 out of 1000?) would have walked by this sad-looking city bike without a second look.

Not us, though.

Surprise! It’s a Pinarello Pista.

So Big Mig’s Pinarello Pursuit bike

This one:

14876777905_335f037ced_o

Well, Bradley Wiggins bought it!

“I don’t know if you saw Indurain’s team Banesto bike, there was a thing about it a couple weeks ago on the internet. I ended up buying it. It’s one of his time trial bikes from 1992, he won a stage of the Tour de Romandie on it.  

“The seller wanted $75,000 for it on eBay. I didn’t pay that, I contacted him directly and asked him straight up, ‘How much do you really want for it?’ I had a chat with him. He didn’t even want that much for it, but he put that price on because he didn’t want to get underdone for it.  

“I’m not telling you how much I paid for it. Less than 75,000, oh f*** yeah! A lot less!”

He’s got plenty more, too.

Rest here:

Pinarello Stelvio single-speed

We have little use for the unicrown fork, but this is otherwise a neat bike (even if we find the decision to convert this particular frame to single-speed a little curious).

psss$_57

This is an original Pinarello Stelvio steel frame made with a very exclusive Dedacciai Kens tubeset (oversize, extremely light), internal cabling. Original red paint and white deals…excellent condition throughout. No rust whatsoever, bright and perfect chrome, engraved and windowed lugs and dropouts, engraved brake bridge/bottom bracket shell/dropouts/front derailleur hanger.
Set up as a single-speed for show (or ride) with Campagnolo C-Record Delta brake calipers, C-Record platform pedals and toe-clips, Alfredo Binda leather toe-straps, Campagnolo Chorus 9/10/11-speed wheelset (Mavic rims), Gusset single-speed cog and spacers, Campagnolo Arhena crank, Campagnolo Bottom bracket, Campagnolo Chorus threaded headset and seatpost, Cinelli bars/stem, Selle Italia Flite Evolution full carbon saddle, etc.
This is a very unique and special build.
Everything is in excellent show condition. Brake hoods are perfect, pedal dust-covers are original and excellent, headset wrench flats are not rounded/worn, chain is not stretched, wheels are true and round, frame is straight (verified on the frame table at Ted Wojick’s shop), threads are perfect.
Frame was sourced from Holland and will be sold with original paperwork (paid for in Dutch Guilders).

Size 52. 52.5 top tube, 52 seattube center-to-center (53 seattube center-to-top)

Its namesake (again, makes the conversion all the more curious as gears would surely come in handy on this ribbon of tarmac):
