A reader sent me these photographs inquiring if this was a Cinelli as it had a http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifbarely visible Cinelli decal. While Cinelli bikes are known for their fastback seat stays designs their was an effort by Cinelli, in the early 1980s, to create a "Formula Bici" brand.
The only photos I have of a Formula Bici, in this case made for the FCI (Italian cycling federation), appeared here. The bike above is very similar (with exceptions such as the drilled seat stay lugs, fork).
More photos of Formula Bici bicycles are needed.
Click on photos to enlarge.
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.
