    I think that the reason Strongbow calls for a setback seatpost has nothing to do with your fit, but the seat looking to be slid all the way back on the rails while using the non setback post. If that is the case, you'd be better served with a setback post as there would be less stress on the seat rails.

    Ah. I get it now. I thought it was more a look thing but yes, I am using too much of the front of the rails up and a set back would centre it nicely.

    Honey do list will need to wait again. Off to the Internet I go to shop!

    yes, what Velodog said. I wasn't trying to say you should move your seat back or change a seat post just for the way it looks.

    It looks like your current seat post has a very long clamp so that's good but clamping all the way at one end puts more stress on the rails and can dedfinitely lead to them snapping. You might want to change it sooner rather than later especially if you're a heavy person.

    Already changed! I realized my wife's bike had a set back seat post that she did not need and swapped them out. Her post was a bit heavier but the hell... it's a winter bike and the heavier this one is, the faster I'll be in the spring on the light race bike!

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I've owned 4 total, but current Cinellis are a custom Cinelli X MASH and a new Saetta...

    [QUOTE=armstrong;4522941]I have a question about the Cinelli "stamp" that goes on the shell. I've read somewhere that if your Cinelli doesn't have it, it's a fake. QUOTE]

    Perfect segue to say I would argue quite the contrary - the Cinelli stamped bottom bracket didn't appear until Cino Cinelli had all but left the company in the hands of Antonio Columbo in late 1970s. Prior to that all 'real' Cinelli's were hand made in Italy (there wasn't any other sort back then) under the guidance of Cino and had no 'Cinelli' on the BB.

    For hardcore Cinelli lovers the era when flying C Cinelli stamped frames started appearing marked the turning point in Cinelli in terms of quality and as a marque - Cinelli in name but not in spirit.

    Needless to say I am a purist - my '72 Speciale Corsa - mint and unridden.

    It deserves to be ridden.

    Not to be rude, but a collector saves his bike while a purist rides his.

    I also have a rider - a '71 SC frame saved from the rubbish - being built up a little differently - will post pics when finished

    Edit: maybe 'purist' isn't the right term - more like 'OCD grumpy retro grouch' I guess.

    Mine is a 2014 Cinelli Experience Veloce. It's my first Cinelli, but will not be my last. I love this bike!

    My XCR is a XL, Columbus fork, CK headset, SR '15 with Bora Ultra tubulars, veloflex carbon tubs, Keo chromoly pedals, Fizik 00 bar and post, 130mm stem, Aliante K'ium saddle and Fizik bar tape, Elite cages. Rides like heaven, don't miss my Cento 1 SL at all, which was 1lb lighter.

    Hi, fellow Cinelli Xcr owner here, do you have any problems with slipping seatpost? I snapped 2 binder bolts already trying to tighten the seatpost. Sigh.

    No, it is still brand new and I have only adjusted the seat post twice. I am using a torq wrench set at 5.5 and so far so good. What a gorgeous bike this is! I really like the straight blade fork and 44mm head tube.

    Are you sure it's the right sized seatpost?

    Then try some carbon assembly paste. I've used it on a slipping aluminum handlebar stem interface with success.

    Yep it is a 31.6mm Thomson, the stays are so far apart that having a tight clamp seems to be a design flaw, the bolt should be bigger diameter. My second bolt just snapped the first time I tighten it and was not even very tight.

    I am waiting for my 3rd bolt and going to clean the seatpost and inside diameter seat tube with isopropyl alcohol, I suspect that it could be the copper anti-sieze that is causing the slip.
