Selectism knows what’s really good with bicycles and we were excited when they reported about this new publication. Italian bike-brand Cinelli have a 200+ page book to be publish by Rizzoli that’ll look at the art and design of their bicycles. It’ll delve into 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.”
‘Cinelli: The Art and Design of the Bicycle’ Book by Rizzoli is due out in October 2012, but you can pre-order it now from Amazon.
