    2 different Italian (friends) - 2 different pronouncement?

    BTW - picked up my Cinelli Mecano yesterday, rode it today, WOW what a beautiful bike & ride... Comps everywhere!
    "It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate rememberance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

    I always thought it was "Chinelli" as in ciao or cello.
