Help finding a 120mm 1&1/8th" Cinelli Grammo(11 posts)

Help finding a 120mm 1&1/8th" Cinelli GrammoDannyBoy

I'm trying to find a dealer who can mail me out a Cinelli Grammo (I'm in New Zealand). I've had one on order from Deeseide Cycles in the UK for 3 months, but Cinelli haven't supplied it to them yet. Parker International can't help either.

Can anyone steer me in the right direction. Many thanks for your help, this is driving me mad, there's a Grammo out there with my name on it!

... I did a Google.com search and got a few hits, but I can't vouch for many of the vendors... but you might have enough experience with alternatives to give 'em a go.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Be the bike.
much better stems out there...C-40

I've owned two of these stems, but wouldn't want another. The new breed of open-face aluminum stems are just as light, a lot cheaper, more rigid and easier to change.

Yeah, I do agree, on my current ride I've got an ITM Millenium.

That said I really really like the look of the Grammo, particularly because they're closed. I also had a nasty incident where I pulled the bars away from an open faced stem (no doubt due to me buggering the threads by over tightening in the past).

Gotta have one, you know how it is when you see something you like, practicality goes out of the window.

By the way Chris Boardman (Ex English Pro) did a bike review in some rag about 6 months ago and reconed it was the best stem he'd used!!! Horses for courses and all that.
There is one in my LBS at Bondi Beach...Iwannapodiumgirl

I can see if it still available when I am next in, most likely Sunday Morning.

However, I suggest sending an e-mail to Steve at Hendry Cycles, a mail order company based in Geelong, Victoria. The address is sales@buycycle.com.au

Their prices are very competitive - A$400 for Newton oversize bar and stem for example.
I'll give 'em a tryDannyBoy

...but do let me know all the same, I'd kill for one of these buggers.

Was in Bondi last year, loved it, made a change from freezing English and Kiwi sea!!!
you would have felt at home in Bondi...Iwannapodiumgirl

I think there are more Kiwis there than in NZ!
Will look for you this weekend, and post on Monday morning.
Even better.......DannyBoy

I got the shops phone number and called 'em. They've got one and it's coming my way. So a mega big thankyou. My new frame should be finished soon, and this is the last part I need to build it up!!!

Many many thanks. Ended up paying about 50% more than the UK price, but on a ten grand bike who cares.......

I think I'd rather be ridding my bike around Bondi than Auckland, it's crap over here for cycling, just got another soaking this morning.
I live to give!Iwannapodiumgirl

Well done on finding the stem - glad to have helped. By the way, who did you talk too?

As for riding around Bondi - what can I say....

Went for my usual ride this morning - along Bondi Beach, then over to Bronte Beach via the 2000 Olympic road course, a lap of Centennial Park before screaming down Old South Head Road to Rose Bay, up t0 Watson Bay then back to Dover Heights (Home!)

A glorious ride on a beautiful morning - not yet summer and it was 21 degrees. Got "bombed" by a magpie though - that sucked big time!
Even better.......Noam

Now you can show your machine when you next pass
Mission Bay on Tamaki Drive. I lived there for 4 years now in sunny Perth.
