    Cinneli Mystic Rat

    I have been looking to purchase a SS and have read alot of reviews on several bikes I am interested in, but have not found many reviews/comments on the Mystic Rat.
    Is there anyone who has bought one or familar with this bike?
    Thanks

    all white is not fun, but it's probably a better buy than the gazetta. i'm sure it's a great bike to ride.

    I think it looks pretty tacky, but I feel that way about almost everything that Cinelli makes. It's probably a decent bike, but Google is showing me prices around 1K, which is more than I'd ever pay for it.

    You can't go wrong with a cinelli....

    It might give you bad luck, if you're into that stuff, as the I remember the first time somebody posted anything about that bike was when he was asking to do after he was hit by a car on that model.

    that build is pretty legit. i'm trying too although i have to admit that when i first saw that jared leto pic it made me cry a little on the inside for my build. i'm still, however, completely in love with my cinelli and i dont have anything bad to say about it or any other cinelli frames.



    the mash frame is pretty played out at this point but the 2011 frame paintjob looks pretty sick. i'm sure velospace and pedalroom will soon be flooded with 2011 builds though.

    to the OP: if you're considering spending $1k, you might want to consider just buying a decent mid-range frame or a more economical complete (kilo comes to mind) and then saving the extra cash to upgrade parts/buy tools/build stuff.

    Oh man. Just searched that pic of Jared Leto and didn't realize they made a music video.

    I watched it and cringed as I saw a bunch of people I used to ride with from LA midnight ridazz's group rides. Weird

    Thanks for all the input. I found the bike for $900 and when I compared it to some of the other bikes around that cost, I felt that the
    components were worth the extra cost. I am also interested in the Capo, but have seen some reviews pointing out concerns with the
    wheels, crank, BB and pedals. All agree it is a very nice frame and fork, but with the other upgrades needed in some of the components
    I am still leaning towards the Cinneli.

    If you buy that mystic. Get a case of Mr.Clean Magic erasers. You're going to need it. Trust me.

    Also if you have a Clean OCD issue. Stay far far away from that pretty rig. Youll be itching yourself at night thinking about it......

    I like coasties (currently riding a Trek cruiser). Anybody have any experience or opinions on the current Schwinn Racer?

    (head slap). Sorry folks. Didn't mean to be trollish by posting in this thread. More coffee needed to enhance perception.
