There is no way this was marketed as a "sports touring" frame when it was built c.1965. It's just the way Cino designed them. But with the 108cm wheelbase, the 73* HT angle, the 72.5* ST angle and the clearance for 700x32mm tires (35's would probably fit, but I haven't tried them), I think it qualifies.

I mean, yeah... it's a mid 60s Cinelli. It doesn't matter which Hall in the Building of Bicycle Fame, this bike belongs in it.

One of the most sanitary neo-retro builds I've seen... silver Campy Record triple, capped off with a well-loved Rolls and an OG Banana Bag. A raise of the glass to you.

@nlerner: 650B on Black Mountain Road? Looks great. What brakes? Any issues? I'd really like to try this to get wider tires on my wife's bike.

OK, guess not 650B after looking more closely. I'd still like to hear about the brakes and tire size.

Thank you. I like it. A lot.

First two photos are 700 x 38mm gravel kings. Fit was tight, but a very cushy ride. Last photo is 700 x 35mm Compass tires, which is mostly how I have it set up. Also a nice, cushy ride.

One more vote for the International.



This picture is slightly dated - the mounting clamp for the Jubilee front mech cracked (as I'm told they all eventually do) so the bike is back to its Campy NR derailleurs. I've also changed the bar tape to a color very close to that of the frame, white only looks good when it is new. I really love the way this bike rides, but I do avoid long, steep hills.

My old Dawes Super Galaxy was brilliant, a lovely thing on long rides in the country.

This is a pretty good sports tourer

I'm partial to my Moots Mootour. Quite relaxed geometry, plenty quick and light.

Pretty sure Spence would beg to differ.
