Makes Cinelli look like some dodgy K-Mart brand. Geez that’s ugly!
dunno if its pure Cx, looks more toury.
Mid fork braze ones, two rack/guard mounts at the back, triple crank.
and yeah, pretty nasty combo of parts/setup.
My god thats ugly. Horrible.
Upon second glance i think its the stem that brings the whole thing down.
Burn the stem, cut the price by 2/3 and i might put in a dummy bid.
The stem is fine, it’s the bars that suck.
Actually yeah, those bars are a crime.
Edit: The more i look at it the uglier it gets. Kill it with fire.
Never seen Cinelli build something of this style/grade.
It was a mistake. A terrible, terrible mistake.
Someone’s taking the piss…
Frame itself is okay, geo looks almost retro mtb
this is some dope as f vintage cx steel
Maybe its a knock off?
i think it’s the stem n the bar tape that makes it ugly
Doesnt have regular Cinelli stays, if that means anything.
Legit Cinelli, but nothing special. Late 80s.
That said, it’s a pretty decent touring frame, and the name (The Smuggler) is better than an Il Pompino.
Just burn the bars and stem first.
A mate of mine had a Rampichino … coolest name ever. Shit bike though.
Those bars/stem are exactly what you’ll see on 80s drop bar MTBs from the States (WTB, Fat Chance etc.).
I think this is exactly that: a monstercrosser before there were monstercrossers. Hella ugly no matter what.
I’d call it an evolutionary dead end that could be repurposed if the cockpit is sacrificed to Cino’s ghost.
