The night before the 2014 Red Hook Crit Brooklyn, Team Cinelli Chrome was announced and now, the Cinelli Winged Store has these racing kits in stock.
Before you get all excited, this is just the first run of samples, taken from Richard’s Facebook. House Industries and Sachs spent a lot of time working on the design. I think it looks awesome and can’t wait to see it all muddy at cross races, hopefully this year. Head over to the ATMO FB for more.
*edit, Richard posted an update in the comments. The tape is 30-40 days out, so keep an eye on the Richard Sachs Cyclocross Team site.
An all-time classic design from Cinelli gets an homage via this new shirt by Mash.
The Cinelli XCR embodies the ideologies representing the brand’s history of making performance steel racing bicycles. Much like the modern big brother to the Supercorsa, the XCR is made in Italy, individually, by hand.
It just so happens that every one of these frames is made to order. Custom if you will, because each frame is welded after an order is placed, which, to me, is pretty rad.
For people like Garrett Chow, the man responsible for many of MASH’s designs, the XCR was exactly what he was looking for after riding strictly carbon for years. He wanted some compliance with a livelier stride…
When the crew at Cinelli / Columbus offered to build him a bike, he gladly obliged and requested a white paint job with Mash insignia added in. Garrett spared no expense on the bike, building with with Campagnolo Record 11, 3T and Fulcrum Racing Lite XLR race wheels. Basically, everything on this bike is made in Italy, minus the Chris King headset and LOOK pedals.
I shoot a lot of nice bicycles, but this one made me nervous as we propped it up on the side of Diablo… See more in the Gallery and thanks to Garrett for thinking of me when it came to shooting this bike!
In the world of urban cycling cinematography, there is one name that resonates within the alleyways, avenues and city streets: Lucas Brunelle. His new collaborative cap with the Cinelli Winged Store features artwork by Futura 2000 and Greg Ugalde.

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!

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!
