Strengths:    Durable rebuildable and provides high pressure.

Weaknesses:    Parts wear out regularly (washer)but can easily be replaced. Gauge isn't too accurate but a separate gauge can be used to calibrate pressure. You have to search a built to find parts but the pump has been around a long time so sources exist.

Bottom Line:   
I have had my Pista since the early 1980's and have found it a wise purchase. The Columbus tubing barrel has been powder coated and I have replaced the hose, plunger washer and valve over the years. If you want a pump to last a long time that can be easily rebuilt get a Pista.

New Road Fixie - Bianchi Super Pista

The Super Pista is apparently the successor to the Pista Concept. Had a Pista Concept, but after several years of use the seat tube split (top front, where it doubled as a structural part of the seat clamp). :eek6: Originally installed with proper torque via a torque wrench, so I'll just chalk it ...

Chrome Pista build with an Italian theme

Hey guys, I know this is my first post, but I'm building up a Bianchi Pista frame I rediscovered in my basement that I remember forgetting about (what?) about 3 years ago when I bought it as a whole bike. The story goes that I worked at a bike shop and bought my first fixed gear which was a 54c S ... Read More »

New Pista

Came home with a new Celeste Green Bianchi Pista today. I was initially attracted to the elegant simplicity of Pistas. First of all it's a beautiful Celeste Green with nicely polished stem, brakes, bar and cranks. After riding it a short time I am really impressed with the way it rides and handles, ... Read More »
