Cinelli BMX

Peter writes, "I just found your email address while I was trying to find information on my Cinelli CMX-1 bmx bike I rode when I was a kid. I couldn't find much info on it and I was hoping you might be able to help me or even refer me to someone that might know more about these bikes. This bike was given to me as a gift in the early to mid 80's when I was just a kid. I used to ride my bike every day and collected quite a few bikes. I remember constantly being in the basement working on them with my father and using any money I had to buy new parts at our local bike shop. As I got older I put the bikes away and moved on to cars and motorcycles to play with. In any event, I was just cleaning out my basement and had to move my cinelli along with a hutch that I had. Every time I pick up that cinelli I'm amazed at how light it is - it seems like it ways nothing. Anyways, any you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help."

Note: catalog and other photos of a CMX-1 that appeared previously in the blog are here.

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. This is really cute BMX, but I think the wheels are not good for BMX freestyle, if you want to have some fun of your BMX I suggest you to change that wheel in thicker one.
