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)

Apprezzamento zona per Cinelli

Come one, come all! Vigorelli, Gazetta, MASH, Mystic Rat do not fear, all Cinelli's are welcome here! This thread is for people who appreciate Italian bred racing machines that come to rule the velodrome and until recently, the asphalt of our urban and suburban streets. It's about darn time there's a thread dedicated to these marvels of engineering and works of art fueled and inspired by racing tradition.

~It'll be appreciated that all MASH related jackassery and bickery be left at the door.~

I'll start, it's been awhile since I last posted pictures of my '10/'11 Vigorelli.

that's fair, but you dish out a lot of critique anyway, you can't handle a slight jest?

cute kitteh... Nice bike... It's always the little things that everybody forgets to check when taking a photo of their bike... You did good job, but just remember that as a photographer striving for perfection, take more pictures!

Of course I can but I rather keep this topic on the bikes than critique as there's already a thread strictly for that. And for the record, I have the QR the exact same way on all my bikes even my dogma 2, I just like it that way.

I've learned to never trust a camera screen, the lower resolution size is very deceiving. Multiple shots from the same angle/ shot. Sort out post production. I did not touch any of those photos except adding the watermark and resizing from the obscenely huge original file. I reserve my adobe toolkit only as a last resort.

Does this mean you get a PedalRoom in the distant feature?

I didn't know you had a Vigorelli, Leuky. Looks really nice, especially that Shamal. Are those RB-002s?

Hell yeah. Good thread Leuky! Don't you also have an 08 Vig with stickers all over it?
I hate to post a picture I've posted on bike forums before... but I'm just so excited about this thread:

I'll take a new shot this weekend when I'm riding the century.

She does but does not condone it. She says she reserves the exclusive right to say "I told you so".

Had a Vigorelli roll through the shop tonight... seemed like an alright bike.

Something like this would cause me to drool...

That's a fine looking bike, sir.

I have wanted a Vigorelli for so long, but my Kilo is still running strong.

I saw a grey historgram (blue cinelli) the other day as we rode the max. I was hoping it would board, but it did not. Looked good.
