I have just purchased this pink Pinarello Surprise Pista off eBay (Kowalski on here).
This was bought brand new from Edwardes in Camberwell in 2006/07. The colour scheme is a bit of a mistery as there aren't any other Pista like this one. The best explanation is that is was a 'one-off' made in Giro pink. If Edwardes didn't know at the time...It will be hard to find out why there is only one...Please let me know if you have more information.
The bike spec has evolved since purchased by Kowalski with only the Record headset and 1" threadless carbon forks being original. The bike originally had a Royce track wheelset and a Campagnolo Pista Record Chainset which was changed about 200 miles ago for the FSA Track chainset and the Token wheelset you see in the pictures.
The Nitto bars, Bontrager stem and Prologo saddle are brand new.
Here is the bike as it currently is:
It is all about to change as I will be using it as my daily ride.
I will move components from my Mielec so, Omniums, Hed3, risers...
I will move the FSA carbon track chainset on my Dolan Seta for track duties and sell the Nitto bars.
I will update this thread as I go.
