Fans of cycling and design in general will appreciate this new book on all things Cinelli bikes from Rizzoli. Cinelli: The Art and Design of the Bicycle is a 200+ page book looking over more than 65 years of Cinelli bicycle building and design. “Cinelli has led the evolution of professional cycling and defined the ideal of the classic bicycle: from the classic Supercorsa racing frame to the cutting-edge MASH fixed-gear pursuit bikes ubiquitous on the urban riding scene; from innovations such as the first plastic racing saddles to the controversial Spinaci handlebars, banned from competition; and from timeless components, such as the Alter stem, to iconic meetings of art and design such as Keith Haring’s treatment of the hour record-setting Laser.” It sits next to a short list of books looking over the world of bicycle design.

We hope to have a look inside soon. Coming this October 2012 from Rizzoli (well out there). Pre-order from Amazon.

More when we get it…
