Here’s a little Cinelli “Cinetica” background history behind this frame: In the 1980's Cinelli produced their cult classic: the Cinelli Laser, during The late 1980’s they also produced the Cinelli Cinetica. This exact frame (see pics) that I am selling: the Cinelli Cineti...ca was manufactured very briefly because the technology at that time was prohibitively expensive when working with Italian made carbon fiber prepreg. The Cinelli Laser at that time was all steel and did an excellent job mimicking the gentle slopes and fillets of carbon fiber in a steel frame, with carbon fiber that is all natural in the manufacturing process. The Cinelli Cinetica was way ahead of it's time and only a small batch of them were ever produced. Feel free to ask questions, I know a lot about these amazing frames because I visited their factory and stocked them in the 90’s when I had my bike shop.
What I have here is one of the rarest racing frames ever manufactured: The Cinelli Cinetica carbon frame. The frame serial number is 0064, it's the 64th frame ever made made.
What makes this frame special is that it is BRAND NEW. This frame has never been assembled, it is factory new, zero miles, it’s been in storage for almost 30 years.
This is a true carbon fiber monocoque built racing frame (even the carbon fiber prepreg used to build this frame was manufactured in Italy). Hand made in Italy with the expertise and cooperation of 3 world class companies:
This is the frame that started it all. The Italians had carbon fiber perfected way before anyone else
Here is a brief background on this rare frame: In the late 1980's Andrea Cinelli decided to manufacture the ultimate racing frame. Along with Ferrari and Campagnolo the design was perfected and production went into effect. All the Cinetica frames used Campagnolo dropouts stamped: Cinetica. As for the authentic Ferrari red paint, that was provided by Ferrari along with its special carbon fiber formula one race car blend.
You will not find much info on the internet about Cinetica, if you google it you will find a few pics which by the way are mine since I have owned multiple Cinelli Cineticas...this one is special because it is 100% new.
Why is this frame so rare, it started it all...while all the big names were building with aluminum and steel, Andrea Cinelli had a vision to use carbon fiber. Cinetica was created many years ahead of its time.
Fun fact: a Cinetica built bike was actually on the set of Terminator 2. Look it up under movie credits.
