CINELLI VIGORELLI ROAD - HYBRID BUILT

A Cinelli Vigorelli Road built for a rider who wants a bike with style, speed and comfort and also plans to do oversea touring ride with it. After many conversations, Apex 1x Groupset, flat bar and Campagnolo Bullet Ultra wheels are selected for this unusual but cool built.




CINELLI XCR, RECORD 12 SPEED BUILT

This is a Cinelli XCR Bike we completed awhile back for our customer Michael, who hopefully is enjoying his new bike now. The bike is fitted with Campagnolo Record 12 Speed groupset/Zonda Wheelset brought in by owner. The result is a stunning looking yet practical Hand Made in Italy stainless steel road bike.

About the Cinelli XCR Frameset:

Released by Columbus in 2007, the XCR stainless steel tubeset represents the most important step forward in performance steel bicycle technology of the last 25 years. XCR was the world’s first – and still today is the world’s only – cold drawn seamless stainless steel tubeset. It is made from a bi-phasis martensitic stainless alloy whose superior mechanical characteristics (in particular its Ultimate Tensile Strength and End Strength) allow for sub 1,5 kg frame weights and superior weight/stiffness ratios than either aluminum or titanium. Additionally the crystal structure of the XCR’s martensitic steel is able to absorb vibrations noticeably more rapidly and uniformly than any austenitic steel, resulting in subtle but uniquely “zingy” ride quality.

Picture time!

A few jobs of installing ceramic bearing related upgrades for our customers have eventually led us to decide on carrying such upgrade components. Our choice is Denmark's Ceramicspeed, the long time gold standard for ceramic bearing technology, which can be found on most race bikes in local pelotons to world class competitions.

Riders who want to upgrade their existing groupet without replacing the entire set often opt for replacing the BB, wheel hub bearings, guide/pulley wheels and even headset with ceramic bearing to save up power for long rides.
