Either a Cinelli Supercorsa, Viner Competition or Viner Pro Team 13 from GVH Bikes. I know it's going to be one of these three bikes with a Campy Chorus Gruppo. Help.....

Does anyone have or know about any of these bikes or companies???
(Because, I don't know much about them.)

I would like to plug Cinelli. I bought a used Gramo stem from E bay. The "C" sticker on the front was beat up and there was no "gramo" on the plug for the bolt that tightens the stem into the fork tube. I E mailed Cinelli in Italy inquiring about these piece's, they E mailed back requesting my adress. I now have both piece's, and a stem that looks as good as new.
I have a Bianchi Ti mega tube. I'm getting it painted and wanted to get hold of a frame set sticker. I E mailed Columbus, the frame set was Columbus Hyperion Ti frame set, Columbus is part of the bigger company that Cinelli also belongs to. They replied requesting my adress, the frame set sticker is now with the painter.
I was overwelmed with these two examples of customer service and support. I don't see any reason they would be any diferent with their frames.

I don't know much--I've never owned a Viner or a Cinelli. But I do know that they've both been around for ages. When I was racing in the early 80's, Cinelli had a rep as a really prime, somewhat expensive, and very nice frame builder. They also did stems, bars, etc., just as now. The company is now owned by Columbus--the tubing manufacturer--and I'm not sure of any continuing connection with the original Cinelli family. Viner was also around in those days and also had a good rep--a little less boutiquey at that time, and a little cheaper than Cinelli, but folks who raced them liked them.

Well, you're looking at three drastically different framesets. One is very classic lugged steel, lots of fork rake, another is Zero Tre tubing, a bit more modern look and the next is EOM tubbed with carbon stays and an Ouzo Pro fork. From my perspective the choice is clear with the T13. It'll be the lightest of the three and best set up for the type of riding I do.
Ouzo comp. sorry. nmTroyboy
