Since I already talked about Giovanni Battaglin, I had to link to this bike. This is close to being one of my “Holy Grail” bikes. A 1994 Battaglin Team Bike. Columbus SLX tubing for the frame (light & stiff). The group is 9-speed Campagnolo Chorus and the whole thing looks spotless. Fortunately its a 56cm frame, so even though it’s tempting, I’d be way too small for me.
The little details like the pantographs on the forks are what make bikes like this stand out.
Again, more neat details.
What is it about those Cinelli Bottom Brackets that just make me feel all funny inside.
Bike is listed on eBay, currently at $1200 with reserve not met. (Price-wise $1200 seems about right to me) eBay Listing
I was doing a bit of research on Cinelli and came across this crazy, yet very cool invention. These hubs were interchangeable from front to rear and the freewheel & holding mechanisms were attached to the bike. Cinelli claimed this would decrease wheel-change times during races – makes a lot of sense!
