In 1978, Cino handed the company over to a young entrepreneur in the steel tube industry with the bicycle at heart. Antonio Colombo owner of Columbus tubing had a different interpretation, perhaps more visionary. From the beginning up to the present, competition is always in Cinelli’s DNA. Its handlebars are chosen by champions such as Lemon, Fignon, Hinault and Chiappucci, without forgetting Lance Armstorng and Mario Cipollini and also Di Luca, Freire and Simoni.
Being a Cinelli owner myself, I've realized the great attention to detail that is used when frame-building at Cinelli. The welds, geometry, durability and overall creative design are what makes this bicycle company stand out way above the rest. They are definitely the best frames I've ever ridden.
