In old logo, the only 42 width that was typically offered was the 66/42. The 63 and 64 did not come in the 42 width. Now I suspect there could be exceptions, but I've never seen one.

\r?\n> A few years ago I heard that Richard Sachs had some old logo 42 cm Cinellis,

\r?\n> price for NOS wide, old Cinellis, which should give you some idea of how scarce

\r?\n> they are. I'll add that this scarcity extends to used examples, though

\r?\n> obviously they don't command the same amounts. On the rare occasion that they

\r?\n> turn up, I see nice used examples sell on eBay around $100 - $150. That's why I

\r?\n> have zero sets when I'd like to have three. The 40 cm bars are MUCH easier to

\r?\n> get, though still not abundant. 38's are a bit more common still. My

\r?\n> impression is that 42's were unsually wide in the pre-1978 timeframe of the old

\r?\n> logo, whereas they became the standard for adult men by the 1980's. So, hoping

\r?\n> that someone might trade a set of 42s or 44s (I don't know that the Giros even

\r?\n> came that wide in

\r?\n> the old logo days) for your 40s is a bit like asking if someone would like to

\r?\n> trade their Inverted Jenny postage stamp for a normally oriented one. Okay....

\r?\n> I'm exaggerating a little, but figure that the 42s are worth a few times the

\r?\n> amount of the 40s.
