what length are the cranks as they look deceptively long?


Hi Ian,
170! I did panic myself when you pointed it out, maybe it's because the phone wasn't parallel to the bike when I took the pic! :)

I've been chatting to a friend in Italy who know Vianelli well, "Vianelli are in Brescia city...i know well Him...my dear friend worked for him many years as a mechanic in his shop,he weld himself the steel frame back in those days....(no more today) many Marinoni frames was made by Vianelli (Vianelli e Marinoni was both in italian amateur national cycling team in the 60s)"

I find it interesting bikenut :)
I really like this Vianelli. They are always very nicely proportioned frames and classy but understated. I was offered one a good few years ago now. A 50cm square, a flat black with gold lettering, really nice but unfortunately at the time I didn't have the money, not that he wanted much. Often think of that frame. This is the first I have seen for a long while.
Very nice, enjoy.

Jamie
