Subject: [CR]Re: Cinellii status

Listmembers,

I'm soliciting your thoughts on how to "finish" my red '73 Cinelli Special Corsa, serial #1748. It is as original now as the day it was purchased from Spence Wolf's Cupertino Bike Shop on September 6, 1973 (thanks Vance). So what's the problem you ask? I understand that Spence had an issue with how Cinelli packed their frames for shipping, therefore he specified no downtube decals be applied at the factory . ergo, this beauty has no downtube decals. The original buyer requested an Avocet Racing II saddle, Phil bottom bracket and thin foam Grab-On handlebar wrap. Fortunately the original owner also bought a Campy bbkt and Cinelli #2 saddle along with the bike, these I have,both NOS/NIP. So your thoughts: have dt decals applied and change out the saddle, bbkt and handlebar wrap, or leave as Spence and the original buyer intended? cool, drizzle in P-Town

&gt;Steve,

&gt;

&gt;I bet your saddle sores come from your period correct Professional saddle

&gt;vs. the B17's I ride. For many of us I think Grant P. is correct, the B17

&gt;is more comfortable.

&gt;

&gt;If you are racing/training maybe the Professional's narrower shape is

&gt;better; I was never a racer so I don't know.

&gt;

&gt;This came about during a phone discussion with another listmember =

&gt;yesterday. I have a bike repair business, he was asking me about the =

&gt;availability of period spokes--Robergel, Radealli (spelling?) etc. I =

&gt;proposed a few items that have superior modern quality (this boy has =

&gt;built wheels for 30 years, I don't want to hear about good, old spokes =

&gt;as there weren't any!) but vintage appearance for cyclists who want =

&gt;spokes that don't break and might not want to use tubular tires. These =

&gt;are my favorites for period appearance with modern reliability, it would =

&gt;be good to hear any others:

&gt;Spokes: Wheelsmith butted have a sharper transition between butt and =

&gt;midsection that looks more like an older type of spoke than DT's more =

&gt;gradual diameter change.

&gt;Rims: Torelli Expert, 480 gram clincher rim of a squarer appearance, =

&gt;clear anodized, shaped like old Mavic Mod E.

&gt;At ten feet it would look acceptably like an old tubular rim especially =

&gt;when shod with:

&gt;Tires: Vredestein Fortezza, or Rivendel Roly Poly depending on how =

&gt;skinny or fat a tire you want. Both fast rolling, comfortable, and =

&gt;tough. Both have skin sidewalls and black tread. Hope this keeps =

&gt;anyone from setting their 1965 classic up with blue Open Pros and =

&gt;green-striped Michelins!

&gt;

&gt;In terms of size and shape, what are the closest Brooks equivalents to

&gt;the Ideale Model 80 and Model 90? For saddles of the same period, how

&gt;does Ideale quality compare to Brooks?
