    Cinelli Giro de Italia bars. Does anybody like them?

    While I have not rode them yet, I have sat on the bike and the severe slope from the top of the bar to the area where the shifters go looks a touch uncomfortable. Here is a pic.

    I find the Cinelli model 64's (aka Giro de Italia) to be a bit of a shallow drop for my tastes. The model 66 is a deeper drop and are my choice for traditional bend bars:

    I have the Giro d'Italia bars on my Nishiki attached to the contemporary Cinelli quill stem. The drop is not as steep as the Model 66 bars I have on my other bike but I find I use the drops more often as it is an easier reach. Gerry

    I am addicted to the Giro's - I have them on my daily rider, and wouldn't have anything else:



    Have considered trying the Cinelli Criterium model out for sheer looks, but the rounded top section would probably interfere with my method of riding out of the saddle, in the drops: shoving my wrists to the sides of the bar. Helps to steady the bike.

    uh.... did you use magic to get your bike to stand for the shot, Kurt?

    BTW... deep drop Pista bars (Cinelli, 3ttt) on my road bikes seem to make me happy.

    Well it seems they might be comfy. I'll try them for a while before I wrap the bars.
    Thanks,

    PSP7 magic, yes. You can see how it was held up in my most recent posts showcasing my 1961 Paramount:

    "Since we're on the topic of Paramounts this week..."

    Take care,

    Giro d'Italia 64s rule and I was totally pissed off when Cinelli stopped making them. I'm using Deda 215 deep drops now as I found the Deda shallows to be a touch too shallow for my liking. There is another 64 model called 'Top 64'
    -the later Top 64 model is made from a different material than the older style 64s. The are a stiffer bar.
    -Top 64s are a bit more 'square' (are wider on the tops and curve more sharply from the transition from the top of the bar into the drops) than the older ones
    -Top 64s are a 26mm diameter (older ones are 26.4).

    Nice Pinarello BTW

    What brake levers or B-rifters are you using? get the cranks in, set up the seat in position, fit the levers and then review. Modern levers with integrated shifters present a very different shape to the hand while "on the hoods" I have big palms and short fingers, never liked the shape of the Campagnolo levers provided. When Aero Gran Compe levers came out my hands were much happier, that and #66 bars, I would consider Tekros today for a lever w/o shifters.

    Sorry Kurt, but the bike and the derailler were cheap so I figure, what the hey, ride away! That way I don't put much pressure on my 75 International, which actually rides much nicer than the Colnago!

    I will more than likely rob the 10 speed Veloce shifters off my Bianchi as I have found a real good deal on carbon Chorus shifters that would go better on the carbon bike. The top tube is a little short for me so I imagine I will be trying out a few stem and bar combinations until I get the fit I like. Which is a shame because I have a lot of time and effort in polishing that stem and the center section of the bar { Cinelli anodizing is very tough ** I am waiting for the ups man to deliver the fd and the bottom bracket. The only thing left is the shifters and a cassette. Here is a pic of the Centaur crank I polished. The camera does not do it justice.

    I like them too!

    I used to use Randonneur style bars (GB, Nitto) but now I prefer the Cinelli bars.

    I am 6'1" tall and the bike I currently ride is compact for me at 57cm. That means my seatpost is long to get the bike to fit. I ride with my stem about 6" lower than my saddle. I do most of my riding on top of the bars or on the brake hoods. The shallow drops of the Giro bars work great for me in this situation. I really like this riding setup and I love the Giro bars.
    If 80's steel was good enough for Hinault, Moser, Kelly, Roche, Lemond and Anderson then I need to prove my worthiness of it on a daily basis.

    Grooved 64s are a completely different bend

    The grooved Giros are a completely different bend from the earlier 26.4mm round version. I like to ride on the tops of the bars and I know I wouldn't like the newer style. It's also hard to ride on the tops of the Criterium bars; your hands want to continually walk out along the shallow curve. My favorites are 64s and 63/66s, which seem to be pretty much the same thing, as far as I can tell.

    My favorite is the old 64, too.
