My new Cinelli

Postby riggsy81 » Wed Nov 07, 2012 16:26 pm

Finally picked up my Cinelli Experience although not had chance to take out for a proper ride so not had time to remove a few spacers to lower stem etc

It's got full campagnolo veloce groupset, Deda zero stem and bars, Superleggera saddle and post, Rodi rims

Will be getting saddle/seatpost upgrade and new wheels/tyres in the spring

Just noticed, is the stem *right* at the top of the steerer!? Don't ride it like that if it is!

Heh, phew! It looks like it was perched right on the top as it looks like you can see the bricks where the stem is sculpted...

Nice, good to see another Xperience. I have a red/white 2010 one. Yours is indeed the best colour scheme.

It's not got Cinelli finishing kit? I'm dialling 999 as I type...

I've got the red and black 2010 model and I've been gradually upgrading over the past 18 months. Not much left of the original bike to be honest!

Campagnolo Zonda wheels
Conti 4000s tyres
Planet-x Ti QRs
Stock Cinelli bars
Planet-X CNC stem
Kore carbon seatpost
Stock Sella Italia saddle (suits me and no need to change yet)
Old pair of Record Ergos
Chorus skeleton brakes
Chorus front mech
Chorus rear mech
Chorus compact chainset
Speedplay pedals

Comes in at just under 19lb (I have a X Large frame). The next step is to swap the frame, but I love the fit cna can't quite bring myself to do it yet!
