This bike is the result of the fusion between Cinelli pistard DNA (the laser won 28 gold medals betewwen Olympic Games and World Champs in the 80s) and the experience acquired in years of fixed gear crits all over the world.The geometries of the frame, made with Columbus Custom alloy tubes and an alu/carbon fork, guarantee balance, responsiveness and stiffess that are perfect for riding up on the banking for a fast lap, as well as vertical angles and small rake make the bike agile without overlapping on the road, and 25mm tires help soften the pavement disconnections.
The extralong dropouts (120 mm) made out of stainless steel, is designed to easily change gear ratio according to the different needs. Indeed you just have to change the pinion and find the perfect chain tension simply using the dropout length.
Tipo Pista comes with both front and rear brakes to be used on every road even in winter, because it allows short training sessions (an hour is enough) focused on cadence, agility and speed.
