Back to School

The Cinelli SC.  A true classic in the world of bicycle design.

The owner of this ride had a Cinelli SC some 20 years prior, and stupidly let her go.

I did my best to recreate the youthful love affair using a modern Cinelli SC frame in superb condition, Campagnolo Super Record groupset and components in even better standing, searched high and low for ridiculously rare pantographed pieces that were also new.

It’s no coincidence that the Alfreda Binda buttons pair perfectly with the Campagnolo Omega decals. It’s a little detail, but one I really like.

The craziest thing about this bike is the completed project is still half the price of what some will pay for taiwanese plastic with Di2.  Long after the battery has died and the bike is worth it’s weight in carbon, it’s nice to know that this classic era of bicycles, cars, clothing, music and furniture is more popular than ever.
