Actually, I must confess that this book takes pride of place in my collection. Well .... almost. If I have visitors I may even snuck it off the shelves and show it off on the coffee table. People pick it up with a knowing look ..... 'he's a bit of a fanatic about racing bicycles ....". But once they've opened it, they appreciate the lustre, the art and the emotion. It's that type of book. I've always loved Cinelli and using this book as a basis, I now understand it's history and how close to the owner's love of avant garde he places his company and it's products. I've got a beautiful old steel Cinelli frame, I love Cinelli track bars and the sloping track quill stem. I have more modern Cinelli pieces, such as the Ram bars and seatpost. And now I have the book. Heaven!!!!
