Those of you who know me know that this is killing me, but here it is:
This is a 1995 Cinelli Super Corsa frame and fork, including a Campagnolo Record Headset. The color is Rosso Ferrari (my favorite). Most people know the Cinelli Super Corsa as one of the stalwarts of classic Italian bicycles. In a world dominated by carbon and aluminum, Columbus-owned maker Cinelli still makes the Super Corsa with lugs and steel, the way fine Italian bikes have been made for years.

If you like steel bikes, this is a steel bike that is guaranteed to please you. Itís fine for racing, riding, or just looking at. There are few things in the cycling world prettier. I have experienced few better rides than those I took with this bicycle. It was my dream bike when I bought it, and it continues to hold my heart and eye as the pinnacle of Italian cycling.

Mine has been ridden a bit. I am not the original owner, and received the bike with a few cosmetic blemishes that have been touched up. Thereís nothing startlingly wrong with the bike (see the photos), but a few spots have received touch-up paint. There is no rust on the frame, inside or out.

I am selling this simply to make room for the bikes Iím keeping, at the behest of my dear spouse. This frame is, unfortunately, just too small for me, so I must make room for one with a 59 or 59.5 top-tube.

This is:
* 1995 Cinelli Super Corsa frame and fork
* 58cm seat-tube (c-to-c), 57cm top-tube (c-to-c)
* Made of Columbus Neuron steel
* chromed lugs, seat stays, chain stays, and fork crown
* traditional fastback-style seat stays
* non-original seatpost bolt on one side (donít know why, but this one is fine)
* includes Campagnolo Record headset in all-alloy
* includes down-tube cable stops (Shimano) if you want to install modern lever/shifter combo
* requires 70mm Italian bottom bracket

Photos show the frame built and unbuilt. The name decal shown has been removed with no damage to the paint.

$750 for the frame, fork, and headset

Yes, just have TOO MANY BIKES. This one is too small for me. As I've gotten back into the sport with some seriousness, my position is stretching out and getting lower. Thus, I'm moving back to the size I rode as a racer, which requires a longer top-tube.

Awesome bike. My size too. Just bad timing.
