A Ridgeback thread got me rummaging through my photographs and I came up with this one of the bike that replaced my Ridgeback, A Cinelli Ottomilano, in white with orange and black details/ stickers. Awesome stuff back in 1988 ( ? ). This bike came with a full XT group set and was built out of Columbus steel. Rims were Fir, original tyres were Ritchey ( I think ). Cinelli bikes of this time were usually known for their neon paint jobs, this was the exception!The photo location would be the coast path West of West Bay Dorsetshire.

Sorry, arty black and white pics only!
squiggly graphics were three shades of orange, if I remember correctly. This bike had an unfortunate accident with a lump of Dartmoor granite and I eventually sold it as a uni/ pub bike :(
I had quite worn it out by then...

I don't think colour pictures had been invented when this bike was new :lol:
