    Here's mine, a 2003 Aliante Carve. Haven't seen that much action, I originally bought it for racing but for health reasons, it has mainly been gathering dust. For those all too rare rides I've been using my 853 bike.

    Ansel and other Cinelli/Campy riders.

    Are you using a 111 or 115.5mm bottom bracket?
    I have a 2004 Proxima in the mail and was curious.

    For those on a modern Cinelli frame (Unica, Proxima, Aliante, etc...)

    Is there toe overlap, on the med frame in particular?

    Normally toe overlap becomes more of an issue in the smaller frame sizes. I own 3 contemporary Cinelli bikes( Aliante Carve, Aliante Muscle and Nuovo Supercorsa), all size S (50 cm virtual) and none of them exhibit any toe overlap.Personally,I'd rather live with a bit of overlap than a lazy HTA

    I've never had a problem with toe overlap. In fact, I was noticing today at the stoplight that my toe did not overlap with the front wheel.

    Built up a GVH Proxima not too long ago.

    I agree with you on the welds. Nothing to complain about. True they are not flllet looking like Cannondale, but they are so much smoother than a mountain bike alum TIG weld, which can look like squirted toothpaste when powder coated.

    The overall fit and finish is excellent.

    For the record, incase anyone is looking for frame details on the Proxima, the headtube length on a medium is 130mm without the Columbus headset cups. Measuring from cup to cup is 150mm.

    Sweet!

    I too have a mostly white Proxima that I've been meaning to post pics of.

    Looks very similar to yours, except I have red tires and silver campy parts.

    Did you buy your med Proxima from GVH recently? If so, we probably bought the last two mediums ;)

    I think I didn't see this post before. Sorry. Anyway, the bb depends on the crank you're using. I have a Chorus crank with a 102mm bb, Italian thread. (Strangely, the new Cinelli Xperience has an English bb.)

    My Cinelli Unica

    This is my Cinelli Unica, bought from a friend. Campy Record 10, HED Alps Wheels and Look LS posts. Unica has more plush compared to my previous Colnago OvalMaster Ti Frameset.

    updated pics of the nuovo supercorsa- besides, this cinelli owners thread deserves a revival-







    decided to ditch some carbon- all that black plastic never seemed quite right on the bike so i went with an alloy record crankset, ti seatpost & spacers,plus a regal saddle, white wrap, nucleon tubulars & veloflex criteriums, upgraded fork etc.

    best,

    Yes

    Unlike another famous Italian manufacturer, all the highest end offerings from Cinelli are still 100% made in Italy. Curiously, when you compare the highest end offerings, the "Best Of"" from Cinelli 100% handmade and handlaid Italian frameset is CHEAPER than the Asian constructed Colnago CX-1. Go figure.

    K, I've yet to see a build of yours that wasn't impressive.

    Very nicely done, a great balance of components, even down to the bottles and cages.

    I'll be in touch soon, almost decompressed!

    Nuovo Supercorsa

    Howdy,

    I'm considering buying a Cinelli Nuovo Supercorsa, and I was wondering how you think it compares to other bikes you've ridden. The other bikes in the running are TIG welded Italians of Dedacciai EOM 16.5, or Columbus Genius or EL/OS tubing. I probably ride a 54cm or 55cm center to center.

    Thanks!

    Wow. Some really gorgeous bikes in this thread... I wish I had my own Cinelli to contribute. Hopefully one day, soon. It's difficult with them being relatively rare on the 2nd hand market.

    I want to clarify that this is evidently not mine, but for the sake of bike porn- Cinelli Track Pista

    You can see his entire bike collection here.

    Hi,
    I would love to ride this exact bike. Looks superb!! Would you think this Small,ie-virtual 50 cm(c-c), 52.5 cm toptube c-c Cinelli nuovo supercorsa will be suitable for my height? I am 166cm or 5ft 4inches. Thanks

    My god this is a beautiful bike (classy). Question for you all Cinelli riders. Been thinking of buying one at gvhbikes for a long time, but I need to know, what is the ride like?

    Is there anything specific about Cinelli's that I should know about? They look absolutely great, but I wonder about the ride. Will call gvh today to learn more, but I am curious.

    Thanks
