Hi,
I am currently rebuilding a 1980's Bianchi into a fixie for winter training (keep my best bikes for the summer weather!!?)

What do you think so far??

I purchased the wheels as seen in pics, with a campag hub, but having trouble finding a single speed kit to fit - can anyone assist me?

Thanks,

Andy

Thanks for reply, I've been told the Shimano hub pattern will not fit mine, must be for campag. I need free hub single speed, none fixie, if this helps.
Cheers mate

Look forward to seeing that finished, nothing like a nice Bianchi and I really like those wheels. Your brake cables might want shortening by the look of it...
