Inspired by the heroic days of cycling in the 1950’s the Gazzetta Della Strada is reminiscent of a time when road racing still meant, potentially, unsurfaced roads and gravelly climbs.
The Gazzetta Della Strada gives the contemporary rider stable handling and clearance for mudguards, whilst maintaining a short enough wheelbase for immediate response in accelerations, an all-together lively riding experience.
The bike has rapidly achieved the status of a true cult bicycle. The front carrier rack is very useful for a small backpack or handbag. The pedals are dual function, with clips on one side and practical rubber treads on the other side, for safe use with regular footwear.
Whilst the bike itself has a traditional look, the geometry is more modern, with a semi-sloping top tube adding comfort.
New BROOKS b17 leather saddle, techno leather bar tape co-ordinated with the seat and silver accessories add a touch of precious shine, as in the glory years of Grande Ciclismo. Assembled with the new Shimano Claris 8-speed group.
Beautiful as well as functional, the Gazzetta Della Strada is perfect for everyday commuting or longer touring adventures.

“The Cinelli bulldozes over poorly surfaced roads, minor pothole and debris without missing a beat. Compared to a lightweight carbon race bike with 23c tyres, it’s an absolute armchair ride.” Cycling Weekly
“It’s very adept when dodging through traffic…a town-friendly ride with classic looks.” Cycling Plus
