Today we raced the first event of the Bay Area Super Prestige Series. It was the first local cross race I have been to this season, and I noticed a strong field of young athletes. It’s inspiring to see the next generation discovering these bikes and ultimately getting hooked and off to the races. Here is to a great CX season in the Bay Area.
While in Las Vegas for Interbike, Walton was able to race the USAC event at CrossVegas. This event regularly marks the start of cross season for us in the US. The USA Cycling event started at 4pm,and the temperature was 90 degrees at the starting line. Eighty races lined up for the start, hoping to hold on for 45 minutes in the heat. Walton went on to sit top-five wheel for the entire race, including sitting first and second wheel in the last lap. He finished fourth for the day, keeping his sights set on building up for Nationals in January 2015. Enclosed are some moments of his race.
Today we opened orders for the 2015 Cinelli Vigorelli. This new design offers a tapered head tube with 1 1/8 to 1.5 headset. We have a limited batch coming in. Order yours in the shop, or from our site, and we will get them out to you next week. Have a good weekend!
We will be heading to Milano for the last stop of the 2015 Red Hook Criterium Look for updates along the way!
We had a great time at Interbike, seeing friends, meeting shops and riders, racing bikes, and sharing our 2015 offering with Cinelli. The response has been overwhelming and we are excited. Look for more updates in the coming weeks!
While at Interbike, we introduced US riders to the 2015 Cinelli MASH Histogram Frameset. This year the histogram gained a tapered head tube, like our Parallax frame. This offers a stiffer, more stable front end of the bike. This year’s finish shows high-polished details under the gloss black finish. Inside the fork and rear stays are details from our first-ever Histogram frame, only four pieces were ever produced of that model. It has been a pleasure to celebrate that first artist series in a full-production run with Cinelli. Available in six sizes. We have a pre-order open now, with frames coming in October 2014. We look forward to getting these out on the street, and seeing how you use this machine.
Being from the US, we love saving some new projects to premiere at Interbike each year. We’re pleased to introduce the new Metallic Black/Charcoal Parallax colorway for 2015. For model year 2015 we will offer both the original White/Charcoal and the new darker version shown in these photos. We invested a lot of time developing this bike and finishing these efforts with new colors and graphics is exciting for us. We hope they inspire you to get out and create your own adventure.
