Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

2008 Cinelli Track Frames - Vigorelli + Supercorsa

I just saw the new 2008 Cinelli catalogue. It looks like for 2008, the Vigorelli got a little blue in the rear end but has the identical geometry and tubing. The Supercorsa...well, we can all dream.

Does anyone here ride the Supercorsa as a daily ride? If so, do tell. I run around town on a Vigorelli every so often, but mostly I just use it on our pseudodrome in Pgh.

Looks like the Supercorsa has an awfully low bb shell, although maybe it's an optical illusion. Super-sexy frame!

You can download the pdf catalogue with the geos here

http://www.cinelli.it/EN/index.html

The Supercorsa pista has a bb drop of 60mm (the Vigorelli has 58mm) so I don't think thas the Supercorsa bottom braket is low

I was at the Cinelli factory near Milano last week and the Supercorsa pista is really nice, the problem is that is quite expensive, at something like 1200 euros is more than the double of the Vigorelli.

I've a Vigorelli waiting to be built at home :-) (I'm just waiting for the Miche Advanced cranks)

The road version of the Super Corsa goes for $1100 at GVH bikes. I wonder what they would want for the track version. It looks very similar to the road frame.

The upside is no big lame words all over your non-compact ugly frame. The "Cinelli" on the downtube looked like someone was working a late night while photoshopping it onto the frame.
