Just heard it through the grapevine that Cinelli are to reproduce their classic components in 2012, such as 1A, 1R and XA quill stems and Crits and Giro handlebars. Is there any truth to these rumours. Sent Cinelli an email but haven't heard anything back.
but not the 2A? they are going for crazy prices these days...
The Crits and Giro handlebars are back too! This article suggests that they'll be in 26mm diameter, which is a shame as we won't be able to use our old 26.4 ones with these new components. I'll keep the old ones and get both the new stem and handlebars!
Actually quite pleased about this - I found Giros the most comfortable drops I've used and my current ones are very scratched up
Quite like the look of that
31.8 Crit bars would be an absolute instant buy.
Deda makes Velocita in steel and pista from 6061, both 31.8...
Yeah, those are track bars not road bars :)
Quite like the look of that
I was thinking that looked tidy too - would nicely offset one of my ninja bikes.
fun fact: b125 are almost the exact shape of cinelli criterium bars.
...and campione's are the best cinelli bars
Bump - anybody seen anything more on this? Haven't had much success with le google
jon at shop 14 mentioned to me that these are available (couple of weeks back).
You will probably need to get your LBS to contact their distributor to do a special order since not all available products will be held in stock (by distributor).
Just found them available to pre-order on Wiggle[U][/U] - out in November apparently.
£60 RRP for the Giros and 1As though! Think I may be going Nitto instead...
I wish Cinelli would stop trying to milk the hipster crowd and make some interesting stuff again
2012 accesories catalog here:
(Retro bars/stems on pg.16)
*No grooves, perfect for brakeless and pre-aero brakes.
It's a shitter because I really like my Giros. Got some wiggly modern ergo bars on my other bike and they're nowhere near as comfortable. But 60 sheets? >>>>>>>>
Surely there's enough Crit/Giro's on ebay for everyone on the planet twice over ?
Edit - Just had a look on ebay, £90 for NOS Crits ?? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I had a tidy pair of criteriums and an XA stem to match, thinking at the time was they were very average and managed to claw back all of about £3 each for them earlier in the year, so your telling me now they are rare fixeh hipster gold? :*(
Why Cinelli didn't reproduce 2A stem?
