Art!

     We have some very talented customers here at Via Bicycle. A while back I had posted a photo of a small painting a customer of ours had done. He then presented us with this very well done much larger painting of our store front. His name is David Ohlerking. Here is a link to his website David Ohlerking check out his other work!

For Sale: Cinelli Head Set with original steel Cinelli stamped spacer!

Here is a really cool item I have for sale today! Cinelli steel head set from the 1950's with the original steel spacer. The spacer is the truly special part because they were often discarded by mechanics. The chrome is in fantastic shape for its age. The bearing races are intact and in fantastic shape as well. This requires 5/32" loose balls. The fork crown race is 26.4.  25.4 X 24 TPI threading. this came off of an early 1960's Cinelli Mod. b we got a few months ago. This is a rare opportunity to own a very rare piece. Perfect addition to your 1950's  Cinelli SC project or mod. B for that matter.
