The Cinelli Winged store contacted Tracko and Kelli to shoot their latest lookbook. Head over to the Winged Store to see more!
Giro really does make the best gloves and they recently teamed up with Cinelli on a run of their popular DND riding gloves. Check them out at the Cinelli Wingstore.
Mash and Cinelli continue their collaboration lineup with these ergo, 70mm reach, shallow drop bars, perfect for street track , CX or road bikes. No cable recesses means they’ll look great on a track bike! Pick up a pair at Mash.
I was a bit surprised to see this on the Jony and Marc’s RED auction list. While I’ll always prefer the vintage models, the modern Laser Nostra continues the tradition of that iconic look with a modern geometry and details. If you’ve got between $10k and $15k sitting under your mattress, it might be time to sign up to bid! See more information at Sotheby’s.
“Red and yellow, kill a fellow…”
Maybe that’s why I love these old Team Raleigh track bikes? There’s something venomous about them. Like some predatory beast, I loved looking at the old photos of British steel eating their competition alive on the boards. The last time I was in Melbourne, I shot another Northside Wheelers in-store display, classic racing track machine, that bright red Cecil Walker. They’re both the same owner, with an impeccable taste for steel race machines.
This one’s a keeper! See more for yourself in the Gallery!
One of the true hustlers in the urban cycling scene is Chas from TCB Courier. Also a Mash / Cinelli rider, Chas was approached by the Italian brand to design a cycling cap for their Rider Collection Cap lineup. Check out this interview as Chas talks about what got him into bikes and the stigma associated with cycling caps!
I’ve got one and it’s one of the more unique caps out these days. You can pick one up at Cinelli’s Winged Store!
French bicycle boutique Road Art took an everyday Cinelli Vigorelli and gave it some extra juice. I always wondered why Cinelli didn’t bank off the Lazer aesthetic before. This bike looks incredible!

This came out so rad. I saw one of the rough cuts at Eurobike. Here’s the scoop:
“Lucas Brunelle Goes to Africa movie has been produced by CINELLI and edited by Benny Zenga.
Filmed by Lucas Brunelle while riding the new #BootlegHobo cinelli bies through the 1700km of the legendary Diamond Coast route, final stage of the Tour d’Afrique!
Hobo is a totally new steel bicycle, engineered and equipped for off-road rides on long distances,
Tour d’Afrique has been an incredible test for our new bike as well as an outstanding way to announce Hobo to the world!
With such a cast a short introduction about our friends spotted in the video is a must!
Chas Christiansen, 100% pure San Francisco, is one of the top riders of the Cinelli Mash Team, iconic figure of the fixed-gear culture, always on the highest steps of Criteriums, Alleycats and Cyclo-Cross Single-Speed races podiums.
Lucas Brunelle is the famous video-maker who introduced the first-person point-of-view shooting technique in cycling races thanks to his great riding skills and the innovative helmet-integrated cameras-system with which is filming and reporting the most extreme race contests all over the globe since more than ten years.
Last but not least, Dario Toso couldn’t miss, explorer of the contemporary, historical ambassador of the Bootleg State of Mind.”
Let’s face it, the name Cinelli and Columbus is synonymous with Urban Cycling. Personally, I feel like they’ve done a lot to bring alleycats, track bikes and general radness to the industry. Especially with sponsorships and their collaboration with MASH over the years.
At this year’s Eurobike, Cinelli’s booth featured an extensive Columbus display, the Bootleg HOBO with Lucas Brunelle’s video and the newest from MASH. I even ran into Red Hook Crit Barcelona champion Fish while I was shooting photos. Check out more in the Gallery!
The Urban Cycling Hall of Fame committee met last week in Chicago to select the first year’s inductees, as well as next year’s board. I still can’t believe I was in Chicago for two full days and only got to pedal around for an afternoon. But hey, work is work and sometimes I fly into a city without getting to fully emerse myself in it. There are dozens upon dozens of rad shops I wanted to check out but didn’t have time. Even though we only went to one shop, I have to say, I’m pretty stoked on visiting this one in particular.
Cycle Smithy has so much eye candy hanging from the walls and ceiling of their space. It’s overwhelming and was totally unexpected, mostly because I had never heard of the shop before. With the short amount of time we had there, I managed to shoot a few (quick) detail photos of this Cinelli Laser pursuit track. It’s a bit of an odd-bird build, with a mix of Italian and Japanese components (that seatpost) but I’m not complaining. Nor was FYXO. I wish it wasn’t raining so I could have taken it a block or so away to shoot better photos but this is what I got.
