    Really nice bike and I appreciate it's very understated design and finish. I don't think other makers like Colnago, Guerciotti or Ciocc will be as restrained if they tried to design such....
    Proves to show that bling isn't everything on C&V bikes.
    I'm a bit perplexed though that the photographer did not bother to inflate the tires for the pic which is otherwise done very well...... I'd put the chain on the big chainwheel and put the drive crank arm just past 3 o'clock too to complete the "perfect" shot......but then that's just my picky and OCD tendencies acting up again.....

    She's a beauty. I love the aero details such as cable routing, caliper placement, shifter location. Plus the color is gorgeous. Thx for posting.

    How much can you steer the front wheel, with that cable routing for the front brake? Not sure I like that detail.

    Otherwise, very cool, including the manly man's cluster, looks like a six speed 12-14 :-)

    I would not assume the tires hold air. Crank arm position does not seem to have a standard beauty shot convention as compared to wrist watches where its almost always 10:10. With the very limited steerage allowed by the front brake cable this one is probably best as a wall hanger. I think the significant thing about these series of Cinelli bikes is that they definitely paved the way for the Kestrals and follow on carbon fibre bikes to come.
    We will ignore the "bondo" babies they were.

    I think with my visual OCD, even as a wall hanger the flat tyres would do my head in! That said, Laser is always ultimate p0rn for me.

    For that matter, where is the rear brake? It has a pair of levers.
    Was this a time-trial bike?

    Looks like it is under the chainstay bridge. There is some black there that is not the pedal.

    Yup. It has its very own cunning little fairing attached to the bb shell.

    Quite the looker. Cool to see it with a shimano drivetrain and the Modolo Chronos. But that headset... Is it Stronglight?

    The rear brake is in a cowling under the chainstays.
