Rai’s Bianchi Concept

I’m in SF now and it’s only fitting that I post about a Bianchi Concept. I feel like these bikes gained popularity here on the hilly streets of the Mission, moreso than the track, where they were intended to be ridden. The last time I was here, I shot Rai’s RC D2 Pista. He was in search for a Concept at the time but couldn’t find one. A few weeks back, he bought this bike from Marc Marino to fund Marc’s Red Hook Crit and here it is, chilling in the alley outside of Mission Workshop.
