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)

Seat looks like it could use some Viagra. Would go well with a similarly droopy penis looking Mutant stem.



Very nice bike.

bought the crankset seperately from the chainring. the omnium ring isnt anything special, but it works just fine, and is perfectly round. no complaints.

How's your chainline?

If the singulator isn't set up right it probably won't provide adequate chain tension under load. Check that too.

The chain line looked okay. One of my friends suggested having the singleator pushing up instead of pushing down (in order to have more chain on the cog) Im not sure though. Im running out of ideas, may be time to got to the LBS.

Attn fellow Cinelli riders - plz help bring this thread back to life for a minute or two?

Heres my baby against typical garage door background - as you can see I'm on road drops/hoods now for daily use...

You should take more pics of some of the nice details, such as the Cinelli signature seat binder.

What's the black clamp thing on the fork near the brake?

It's a keirin brake adapter as the fork crown of the supercorsa pista is too narrow to drill a acceptable brake mounting hole into.

Ahh, gotcha. I hadn't seen one of those before.

Not many compact bars for 26.0 stem. My guess would be either Soma Hwy1 or Civia Emerson bars.

Have to admit am more than a little disappointed that the weekend went by and not a single additional Cinelli pic? I know there’s got to be some more of them around this place…don’t you have one Leukybear? Oh well, I tried...

Yeah, you're right - I but am a terrible photographer with just an old point and shoot so consider myself lucky to have even come up with the one that I posted

It is Wabi's light wheelset that he offered back around the holiday season last year. Am using it as a testbed to see if very light, low-spoke-count wheels hold up for my riding before possibly wasting time and money on a long-contemplated wheel build that could get pretty expensive. So far, so good - zero problems and I like how they perform

Found this unbranded bar in a take-off bin at my shop so I cannot disagree with Soo Fuego’s educated guess, with Record aero levers

Leukybear is absolutely right that I'm using a clamp-on brake adaptor due to my fork not being drilled - though just as an FYI...my frameset is from mid-90's back when they would not have considered such things, but current SC Pista is available with a drilled fork


Nobody's gonna ask what is the gearing, how much it weighs, or how big of tires it can take?

Oh, awesome. I remember Wabi only offering a black wheelset which is why I ended up going with another option. How did you remove the black coating on the rims? Thanks!

Sorry, should have been clearer - towards the end of last year Richard offered a special limited edition lighter wheelset. They came the way you see them...



IIRC there's someone else here who also has them...

There's one up for grabs right now with a reasonable starting bid. It's a Superpista, though, not a Supercorsa Pista like IAmSam's.

Not many compact in silver, mostly black nowadays. Shame, that.
