Jerry Tenenberg asked, Can someone shed light on the typical wheelsets that were found on 70 - 73 Cinelli SC's? +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ My SC originally came with Campag Record high flange, but I think that the equivalent small flange would be fine - that was popular on Masis of the era.

Of course, the flip answer is that Cinelli SCs of that era are not properly shod unless they're wearing Cinelli BiValent hubs. Preferably the second generation (one-piece hub shells, which broke less frequently than the three-piece), but either the single or double helix skewers are acceptable. http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Italy/Cinelli/Cinelli_parts.htm
