Help needed quickly, Bricca track bike? pics inside.

I found this on a local website and it right away caught my attention. I've had fixies before (all conversions) and enjoy them quite a bit.




Asking price is $300, I can't really afford it right now but if it's worth it I can find a way.

Hmm looks pretty big, perhaps my size... If you get it and decide it's too big let me know.

I got it today, all I needed to do to ride it was to pump up the tyres and re-tap the driveside crank. Rides beautifully but a bit to big. Thats fine, I'll survive.


Oh, by the way, it's a Cinelli.

Doesn't appear to have the Cinelli seat stay/binder bolt arrangement. Does it have Cinelli on the BB shell? If so it does not necessarily mean it is one. Love to see more pics.

I'm seriously questioning the cinelli claim as well,,, we'll need lots of pics to prove it.

It says Cinelli on the BB lug underneath and has the Cinelli logo on the bottom headtube lug. It's also got Columbus tubing.


I'm going for a ride in a bit down by the lake to snag some nice pictures of it, you will have them by the end of the day. It's 20* out, but I see clouds coming and I don't know how long it will last.

Doesn't mean anything other then that the bike utilizes a Cinelli lugset.
