    Cinelli - real deal?

    Anyone see the Cinelli offered for sale on EBAY?

    Item number: 220226438431

    from the pics, it has the correct bottom bracket (Stamped Cinelli SC), but does not have the fastback seat stay - any thoughts ??- I know Cilellis sells LOTS of BB shells, but do they have the SC stamp on them? I have a Cinelli Equipe (Centurion), and it does not look like the same frame.....

    ..thanks - that is what I thought as well... so do you think someone in the Cinelli factory simply pulled the BB shell out of the bucket intended for super corsa frames and mailed it out to someone else?...

    I don't think that BB has anything to do with the Supercorsa frames per se, and doubt Cinelli had special bottom brackets for their own frames, though they could conceivably have modified them. Cinelli's first and perhaps most definitive design for its cast BB shell was the model SCM. My guess is that the S.C. refers to the model of the shell and not the bike to which it belongs.
