This is Cino Cinelli. He was born in Montespertoli, Italy on Februarty 9th, 1916 and died April 20th, 2001. In his time he won the Tour of the Apennines in 1937, Giro di Lombardia in 1938 and the Milan – San Remo in 1943. But the hallmark he’s most famous for is starting a company in his own name in 1948. He is now a legend and responsible for my favorite bicycle components. I figured it’d be best to put a face to the name.
