Is that model called something like Ottimilauno? Our LBS had a couple of Cinellis back in 1988 - this was one of them, very expensive!

Thanks for your kind comments chaps, It means a lot to me and I am glad its going down so well :D

I have just had this pic emailed to me from a good friend of mine (from a long long time ago) Dan. I bumpted into him on my night lap at Mayhem, I hadnt seen Dan in 20 years , I was powering up the climb out of the arena and saw a photographer packing up :roll: I was dissapointed but when I saw it was Dan I quickly used the cinelli's brakes to maximum effect & eventually stopped, I had a very quick chat with Dan, I was in a rush and after a quick retro this retro that and doesnt time fly I had to make a move, Dan offered a quick snap so I rode down the hill as he set up his camera and stuff, I then used the power of the previous nights BBQ and gave it large up the climb :lol:

Oh and a link to Dans handy work :wink: http://www.danmilner.com/bike.html

I had a Cinelli Ottomilano, white with orange and black graphics,columbus tubing, xt group set , fir rims , rode it for years until some t**t put a big dent in the top tube by knocking a lump of dartmoor granite off a wall that the bike was leaning against. before that I had flown it to canada to do some riding in New Brunswick, and had also ridden it across Spain and Portugal.

Very very nice - and good sympathetic rebuild. Not sure why but I would be tempted to try it out with drop bars for the full early 90s madchester look...

Oh, and if it's in Bristol - I guess you have to padlock it to the earth's core...
