"Why is it that the famous Cinelli frame (you know the silver one that everbody covets) has such a following when from what I can tell It hasn't won much or been on any famous team. I will give it its due it is truly a beautiful frame but it has an aura all it's own and seems to me to be based on design and looks alone.
Kind of the Grace Kelly of frames. Taken out on the weekends and looks stunning hanging out at the coffee shop.
One other thing how does one take out a busted adjustment screw from a back drop out."
Jack makes a good point on the silver Cinelli SC. We all want one. We might pretend we don't, but in our hearts, we do. It's a color that is worth a 50% increase in value for no logical reason. What makes a Holy Grail? We want to say it's because Elmo Zanto rode one like it in his famous climb to win the '48 San Remo. But then something like the silver Cinelli that never won anything shows up. ??? It's the silver gullwing coupe of bicycles.
Any thoughts out there on the dropout adjuster screw?
