2018 Cinelli SuperCorsa Pista
There are some classics that just don’t get old and remain as desirable today as the day they were introduced. The Cinelli SuperCorsa Pista steel track racing bike certainly falls into that category. It looks so beautiful, you will be tempted to hang it on your wall, but that would be a waste of a fantastic track racer that can very easily double as a street racer if you are into Red Hook crits, or just like to look seriously dapper on your commutes.
This is the first design that Mr. Cinelli himself developed with his frame builder back in the 50s, and is intended to find the perfect balance among the three primary parts: the fork, front triangle, and the stays. With that attitude, the stiffness and compliance could be optimized for a perfect riding machine. They have carried over that ambition to make the SuperCorsa Pista a great option for the boards or rough city streets. Though the frame looks very close to the original, they have made updates to production using the highest quality materials and manufacturing techniques to ensure this is a modern bike with a classic soul.
The rear axle and fork use bolt-on methods to attach the wheels, so you’ll certainly feel the security, but remember if you are using this as a commuter or street racer, you’ll have to carry more tools than a quick release axle requires. The 70mm Italian threaded bottom bracket offers that classic, efficient touch. The frame fits a 27.2mm diameter seatpost, which will make it easy to match it with whichever brand of post you’d like. And it can fit up to 25mm tires for those times you do want to take it off the boards. Bear in mind, there are no brakes, nor has it been drilled for them.
The Cinelli SuperCorsa Pista is available in 13 sizes ranging from 49 to 61 in 1cm increments. You can also opt for custom sizing if you really have a clear idea of what you need from your ride.
