Cinelli Laser

A friend just bought a Cinelli Laser pursuit frame. He is looking for the solid-disc carbon wheels Cinelli put on this bike.

Anyone know any leads to getting these wheels?

Anyone know anything about the manufacturer of these wheels? Were they made by Campagnolo with a Cinelli sticker? Or did Cinelli make these wheels?

I believe they are called Campagnolo Ghibli's. They came in different generations.

I own a Cinelli 650c front disc and it doesn't bear any construction similarities with my Campagnolo Ghibli rear disc. The Cinelli discwheels are hollow by the way... and noisy It has a Gipiemme hub but I'm not sure who manufactured the actual wheels.

Edit: Velobase has it the wheels were Gipiemme built

I guess there might have been some variation between the years and teams who used them... Not an expert so don't really trust me

There were a few different Lasers, from my limited understanding, and different wheelsets. Eric Heiden's were labeled Ambrosio, others were not.

I'm sure you've seen this, but:

I was told yesterday that Cinelli still custom make the odd Laser now and then for special clients.

Nuts.

Did he buy the Laser on eBay a few months ago. This was my dream bike when I was a kid. Sadly, my walls had posters of bikes like this and no Farrah Fawcett.

The noise of vintage disk wheels is such a beautiful sound to my ears, particularly when you are at moving at a good clip and the hollow echo of the wheels blurs out the wind and forms rhythm with your breathing as you struggle against the clock. It is the sound of momentum. It propels you.
