Bianchi P.U.S.S. Mountain Bike 19.5" Single Speed and Alfine IGH 29"/27.5"/26"
Rare Bianchi P.U.S.S. mountain bike (includes Alfine 8-speed wheel and single-speed)Size L/19.5″ The Bianchi P.U.S.S. (“Pink Urban Single Speed”) was a limited edition frame built in the mid-2000s. Designed by Sky Yeager and and made of Easton ultra lite tubing, the PUSS was the coolest-looking single speed ever made*. The frame originally ran as a 26″ single-speed. There is also enough clearance to run 27.5″/650b wheels front and back, with up to 2.1 tires (depending on tread width). However, the fork has clearance for a 29″ wheel running a 2.0 tire, and I found that running a larger wheel up front gives the bike a slightly more modern MTB geometry. Although designed as a single speed, with rear-entry dropouts, with a little ingenuity, the PUSS can also be run with an internally-geared hub. The bike is currently set up with a 29″ American Classic wheel up front, and a 27.5″ Alfine 8-speed wheel in the rear, making for a great city bike. Also included is a 26″ Mavic Crossride single-speed rear wheel if you want to switch back to pure 96er/69er single-speed fun.
