|Anyone got any experience with cinellis bikes?? espacially the starship. i've been looking att it and think it seems to be a piece of masterwork. not only is it light and stiff (well, at least according to cinelli and resailers) but it is also extremely good-looking.
Does Cinelli still makes these frames? i've read somewhere that it is a limited stock
What country is Cinelli from? is it a italian brand? (probally stupid question)
All answers and oppinions appritiated

|I purchased a Cinelli Proxima about 2 months ago. This is my first road-bike (I usually ride XC) and was brought after test riding a Giant TCR, a Bianchi & a Cannondale R600.
I appreciated all of them - very light compared to my full sus XC, very fast etc.
Ultimately I chose the Cinelli because I found it the most comfortable both straight away and after a longer ride. The other thing that made me choose it, and I am almost embarrassed to write this, was that it had that certain something. Probably the color and the fact that it is Italian!
I am now averaging about 100 to 150 miles per week on it (and only about 50 miles on the XC) and can honestly say that I am not disappointed.
The only change/upgrade I have made is that I changed the stock wheels for Mavic Ksyriums after getting a Tax rebate. The stock wheels were fine and are now used as spares.

|I konw nothing about the Starship, but I ride a Supercorsa (Columbus Neuron steel) and I love it. Cinelli is an Italian company, and they make very sweet stuff!|
|I really like this bike as well,||9WorCP|

|but I never ever see them anywhere. Only in magazines. I do know that the Starship won a major award in industrial design a little while back and the frame was on display at the Museum of Modern Art. I particularly like the very unique seat stay cluster. Cool stuff.|| |
