Interbike 2012: Cinelli

Year after year, photographing Interbike goes from being an overwhelming and daunting task to me just knowing what people want to see. That and after I get over shooting in the horrible lighting, the yearly tradeshow’s bounty of Beautiful Bicycles just comes easy. This year, Cinelli packed a few punches, starting with the new single speed CX frame, designed by MASH. But the main surprise was the custom carbon Laser road. Wow.

    how much will the road be?

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      Around $6,000 (if I remember correctly) for frame, fork and headset.

        i was at interbike all 3 days and now looking at these photos of the laser i see one thing im not sure about…. electronic  cockpit.

          Stephen, It’s custom.  You can set it up mechanical if you wish…even friction downtube shifters if you like ;)

        Pricing has not been finalized yet, but that’s a pretty good guess.  I hope we can get it closer to $5,000.

    Sweet jesus that Laser is nice looking!

    What is the thought behind the “handle” bar?????

    • http://www.digicycle.net/ Tucker

      i was wondering the same thing.  The seat stay looks rad too.

      • Bennyradikal

        space for accessorizes?

        • http://twitter.com/CinelliUSA Cinelli USA

          This is correct.  The RAM3 bar ships with a rubber adaptor to run a computer, etc on the “manta ray” portion of the bar.

    You know you’re a VW nerd when you see a picture of a nice Double Cab on a bike site, and think “I wish that bike weren’t in front of it.”

    • thurtytwo

       Felt the same way!

      • Baron von Drais

        I think that’s an uber rare Synchro 4 wheel drive double cab
