Sorry Dave H., I'm trying to be discreet...I saw the beautiful Cinelli Super Corsa you recently acquired from GVH bikes.

I'm a big fan of Shimano, but did you consider Campy stuff for the Italian frame? I may go the same route with Gary so I'm curious to see what uour input would be.

Not to start a "Campy vs Shimano" thread---just curious! ;-)

Where can I see the picture???? I am also very interested in one of the Cinelli Super Corsa's from GVH Bikes and would love to see it built up.

Do a search "Cinelli Super Corsa" and voila- Dave took some nice pics.....

Looking at classic steel frames too? That red lugged frame is calling me!
(!)Oh the angst!

Not Dave but here is a GVH Cinelli with an Ultegra build my brother in-law took delivery of earlier this spring. As a side note, this is straight out of the box so nothing had been adjusted for fit (size 55cm).
No complaints........Dave Hickey

I really love the frame. I transfered the D/A group from another frame. If I bought a new group, I'd probably go with Campy. There is nothing wrong with D/A but this frame just cries out for Campy.

I like the functionality of Campy Ergo stuff, but I think what the Cinelli really cries out for, with its clear, clean, classic lines, is an set of downtube shifters. The choice of aero or non-aero brake levers is up to you, but if you put a set of big, blocky Ergo brifters on it, you might as well put a rear rack and panniers on it as well.
