Jay/List In the November 1977 edition of Bicycling is a very interesting comment in Dick Swann's column "Question Man" on page 64/65. Mr. H.J.Battjes of Palo Alto, CA writes: I have an Ideor. I am told it is circa 1960, near Cinelli's factory, a fine frame. Could you elaborate? Response: This is one of several makers that have appeared in Milan over the last 20 years. Most of these small makers are ex-Cinelli workers; so the stuff should be very good indeed. Dick Swann

The response seems to confirm a link to the Cinelli factory. Has anyone heard about this before? Would anyone agree that the build quality of an Ideor is comparable to Cinelli?
