For one reader a long search is over for a Unicanitor Model 70 Campione del Mondo:
The first saddles based on a plastic form were to be called "Unica" but the name was already patented so Cinelli decided on "Unicanitor", a combination of "Unica", "Ni" for the first letters of the inventor-Mario Nieddu, and "Tor" for Nieddu's factory in Torino.
I invite you to contribute by sending in photographs of your Cinelli bike, illustrations, personal stories, and articles about Cinelli bikes and components. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
