Grafik author Max Leonard takes an in-depth look at bicycle logo design from the ages. Included in the mix are both the original Cinelli logo and Benny Gold‘s version for Mash, two of my favorites. See the full article at Grafik.
Here’s the latest from Cinelli in their artist series:
“In her second collaboration with Cinelli, Jersey City based illustrator Ana Benaroya came up with 2 new sock designs taking inspiration from the iconic winged ‘C’. The ‘Snake’ and ‘Star’ collection features Ana’s truly distinctive style mixing lively colors and shapes on high performance socks Made in Italy.
As well as her design collaborations with Cinelli, Ana has also contributed artwork designs for New York’s Lincoln Center, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Ralph Lauren, and Simon and Shuster.”

Cinelli teamed up with one of my favorite cap manufacturers on their latest collaboration. This go-round, they commissioned Fifo Cycles to design and produce an homage to the 1988 Seoul Summer Games and the Soviet racers who took home 4 medals on the Laser pursuit bikes at the track.
There’s something very Russian post-constructivist about the design and I love it!
Head over to the Cinelli Winged Store to swoop!

Red Hook Crit is here! Happy face! Put on your happy face. Yes it’s going to be cold, wet and it’s going to suck. Yes, that happy face of yours is going to be sprayed by the fender-less track bike topping upwards of 30mph as you rip through slick corners. Yes, you’re going to fall. Hard. Over people. Yes, you will lose this race you’ve trained all year for.
But, there is good news. Two journalist dudes will be in your face with a camera, making you look cool. Or in this case, one journalist dude who kind of looks like me (Prolly). Or I kind of look like him, because technically, he was born first… Check out Manual For Speed’s Tales from the 2014 Red Hook Crit below!
I’m not going to type anything because this is only limited to 20 pieces and it’s going to sell out FAST! Head over to the Cinelli Winged Store to buy one.
Cinelli and Chrome have teamed up to form an elite track crit racing team, with quite the impressive roster.

While this isn’t exactly new to the avid followers of the Red Hook Crit’s Facebook page, I wanted to give Cinelli and David Trimble some love for building two great looking prize bikes: one for the women’s winner – Jo Celso – and one for the men’s winner – Thibaud Lhenry – of the event.

Yeah… Cycle Smithy isn’t messing around with this one. A Columbus MAX Laser, featured here on the site before, fully restored, and laced with only the finest components.
