Cino Cinelli Olive Oil

Spotted by La Gazzetta della Bici at a bike shop in Japan: Cino Cinelli olive oil bottles.

Who knows more about the Cinelli olive oil production?

I invite you to contribute by sending in photographs of your Cinelli bike, illustrations, personal stories, and articles about Cinelli bikes and components.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I'll be danged if that badge isn't a "real" one...

  2. I remember reading about Cino Cinelli retiring from the bicycle trade and embracing olive oil production as a line. I believe that this was mentioned in a Bicycle Guide interview. If I remember the article correctly, the established olive oil producers doubted that a man who came from the bicycle industry could create a quality olive oil product. But ultimately Cinelli proved them wrong by becoming an authority (yeah Cino!).
    Up until now, I wasnt sure if this was bicycle mythology, but I'm glad that its been proven true.
