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)

Super Random ?: blue Cinelli Alter vs. blue Cinelli Sesamo

OK, this is a super random, very niche question regarding COLOR of two stems lol
i dont really expect an answer, but what the hell, might as well throw it out there....

basically the only person that can answer this is someone who has seen both the blue/silver cinelli alter and the blue/silver cinelli sesamo...

this...


and this...


question:
ARE THEY THE SAME HUE/COLOR BLUE?



the reason i ask is i have a cinelli alter on a build, and the blue on it astonishingly enough matches the blue on my frame perfectly. buuuut of course i won the alter on ebay for relatively cheap and thought "oh the 120mm will be fine, the frame is a 58cm and i normally ride 60ish"....however pairing it with bullhorns makes it a touch long for me. its rideable for sure, but ive been in the process of fine tuning this bike and cant help but think a 100mm would be absolutely perfect for the build. i have a 1 inch threadless fork, and i like quirky stems like the alter and sesamo, and there happens to be a 100mm sesamo online for sale, but looking at images its hard to tell the actually hue of blue, some look light blue, some look like the exact alter blue....just being aesthetically nitpicky.

No, they haven't, but unless those pictures both have strange lighting I'd agree with them. They look very different in the pictures and I'd assume they are different colors.

yah based on that photo i would agree, but then i saw this...



in this pic it definitely looks like the same shade....




also then there is this photo of the blue alter that looks closer to the first picture i posted of the sesamo, and i know for a fact the blue alter is darker than this:





lol going this far for a bike stem is borderline ridiculous. ok it is ridiculous. i know i have bike part obsessive compulsiveness or something. but i think allot of us here do lol

I've only seen the black and white version of the Sesamo in person but I remember talking to the shop guys about the colours of Alter and Sesamo and they said the colours are supposed to match the other one.



Not mine

yah i would think they would be the exact same, since they both basically have the same "colorways"....

buuuut its hard to be sure. People adjust colors in photoshop, different lighting, diff cams etc. and its hard to tell from online images.

btw i read in bike blogs a year or so ago cinelli was going to re-release the alter? what happened with that?
