Hello Jerry. In regards to the reason why Mr. A. Colombo changed from the beloved Cinelli Coat of Arms to the Winged C. I remember reading a profile of Cino Cinelli in an old issue of Bicycle Guide. The interviewer asked Cino why the change? Mr. Cinelli responded something to the effect that "Its like when a new boss comes in and moves the funiture around". I believe that the Cinelli Coat of Arms uses certain parts of the City of Milans C of A (like Alfa Romeo and Masi) the knights helmet apparently belonged to his father. I will try to dig up that back issue of BG for specifics. Speaking of Bicycle Guide, if anyone knows how I can get in touch with former BG editor John Derven, please contact me off the list. Best Wishes, Dave Martinez
