Rai’s 2004 Bianchi Concept Track

Rai loves Bianchi track bikes. After buying various models like his old RCD2 Pista and his 2006 Concept, all he really wanted was a black 2004 Concept. When Kyle from Tracko / GSC posted this frame for sale on his Instagram, Rai jumped on it, built it up with his parts and began riding it immediately. For dudes like Rai, the black Concept represents the track bike’s heyday in SF. It’s iconic and while this bike certainly has street cred, it is going to start seeing some time at Hellyer in the near future. Of course, he’ll have to replace his booted tire first… Check out more shots of Rai and his 2004 Bianchi Concept in the Gallery!

      Definitely a Chub Hub yes. However, with a LOW sticker appliqué?

    Bars look interesting. I’m not used to seeing them wrapped from the stem out.

    • Jack Lewis

      It works great only if you’re using a very firm tape like Fizik microtex, otherwise it’ll get messed up pretty quickly.

    • Ian Stone

      It looks a little cleaner since you don’t have to tape it down on the end.
