Cipollini Bikes at Tirreno-Adriatico
Back in January we reported, here, that the ISD-NERI Cycling Team would be using Cipollini bikes for this season. The bikes have been quite evident in the TV broadcasts of Tirreno-Adriatico as a number of ISD-NERI riders have launched escapes which have received quite a bit of broacast time. The team is using the "RB1000" model which has a curved seat tube.
There is also a model with a straight seat tube, the "RB800".
It would be nice if Mario sent me one of his frames for a review so I could compare it with my made-for-Cipollini Cannondale.
