Cinelli 2012 bicycle range part 1.
Next up were the new Carbon road bikes , Saetta and a Cinelli Pro with the new Shimano Dura Ace electronic shifting system, both were very nice and super lightweight. For the more budget minded cyclist the new Gazzetta Della Strada should fit the bill nicely. It's basically the same frame as the Gazzetta track bike but built with wider seat stays and a wider fork to accommodate 700c x 28 tyres and comes equipped with fenders front and rear plus a front rack. Cinelli has redesigned this frame after receiving lots of feedback from riders around the globe who wanted fenders and larger volume tyres for commuting, touring etc. The frame is built with Columbus tubing and equipped with Shimano Sora and is priced at 147,000 yen so is well within the reach of most commuters. Also they had 4 bikes on display from their cheaper Bootleg line including a new track bike in black with bullhorn bars . The other bike pictured above is their Alloy Cross bike made with Columbus tubing and although it's not available as a complete bike, the frame will make a great base for building up a nice race ready cross bike.
