Ben Coffey of Cinelli Bicycles USA came to the SF Bike Expo with some parts that at first glance look like NOS, but are actually new reissues for 2012. The classic Cinelli 1A Quill Stem is being reissued as a 2012 part, originally announced back as NAHBS this year, it has yet to ship. Ben assures us that they will be shipping in January for about $100 msrp. Available at your local Cinelli dealer.
Cinelli will also be reissuing two handlebars, the Giro and the Criterium 65. Shown here, the Criterium 65 offers a bend similar to the original bar and finished in a satin milky finish to replicate the look of the original bar. Available also in January for $100 msrp.
Following the overwhelming success of San Francisco graffiti artist Mike Giant’s velvet art bar tape, Cinelli has decided to add a second red colorway to the lineup.
