Cinelli Solido/Solida Magnum bar/stem - any problems?(6 posts)

Cinelli Solido/Solida Magnum bar/stem - any problems?Iwannapodiumgirl
Oct 17, 2002 3:42 PM
Following my re-think of whether I like real teeth or not, I have decided NOT to buy the Deda Newton oversize bar/stem combo.

Now think of the Cinelli Solida/Solido Magnum combo. I have found two reviews. I have never heard anything bad about a Cinelli product, and this concerns me in some ways.

Anyone out there riding these beauties? If so, can you please provide me with some comment.

TIA
No problems with mine........Dave Hickey

I'm using them on my LOOK KG241. Very nice combo. I've never had a problem with the stem or the bars. Also the carbon wrapped bar looks real cool.

I bought this set bar & stem about 3 months ago....they are SWEET !!!! I had the Easton carbon bar & it was just too noodley for me. Got mine from wise cycle buys, but later found that Cambria Bicycle Outfitters had it about $20 cheaper. Well worth the $$$$ IMO. The only problem I have is mounting my computer (Mektronic)on the OS bar....anyone with any ideas ?? Super stiff & comfy..you'll love them.
not late... sometimes it is better to come second!Iwannapodiumgirl

Thanks for the vote of confidence quadzilla1.

To provide a solution to the computer mounting problem, I will use the cinelli checkpoint. There is some details on the Cinelli website....

I have the Mektronic system & I have shift buttons that I use with my thumbs on the computer head. I wedged a piece of inner tube under half the mount. Functional, but is really, really ugly. Shame to mess up such a good looking stem/bar with it.
