Cinelli Saetta - 2012

Postby jasonowl » Mon Nov 26, 2012 14:53 pm

Got this beauty from Wiggle... its is so much nicer in the flesh.. and beyond my expectations for the price.

Haven't open the box with the original wheels (RS10)... but I just had to fit on my C50s to see how they would look.
The shape and "flow" of this bike is really stunning.... makes you just wanna get on it and spin...

I'm waiting for my Swissstop GHPs brake pads to arrive and going to fit them on the bike. That's probably the only upgrade for now.. ;)

Here are some pics... took it late at night.. will try to get some better pics uploaded.

You've gotta be happy with that !
Nearly ordered the all blue version yesterday (frame and forks only) from Planet X but went for the Deda Scuro RS and now you've got me thinking ....

Enjoy

Yep, that looks stunning. Had more or else decided to get the 2013 frame and swap the bits ver from my Roubaix, but I do like that red - looks great! The 2013 frame looks a bit boring in black by comparison :(

Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe he keeps it in a safe on the 148th floor of a high-security building just for peace of mind ;)

By the way - I like that bike.

I have no idea what's going on here.

This bike looks superb, it's not often I say it but there's nothing on here I would change atheistically, I love the finnishing kit and everything.

Just bought the all (well mostly) blue version, took the Scuro RS back.
Chorus, Mavic Ksyrium SR, Ritchey WCS carbon curve bars, C260 stem and WCS wet black post and Fizik Arione cx braided world champ black saddle.... should be done tomorrow.

The below are a few examples of the blue version

Weighed the frame at Planet-X and 1050gr for a small with rear mech hanger, front mech hanger and seat post collar. Very impressed as manufacturers often quote bare unpainted weights. Fork was 390gr and will obviously be cut down some so all in all looking good. I reckon it's gonna be 7.2kg with Time RXS carbon pedals on :D

Like the op's bike it doesn't say it's the sprint version but it has the correct full carbon fork and steerer, the weight is right and I've not seen the standard Saetta in these red or blue colourways (they are predominantly white).

Can't wait :D
