Cicli Maestro Milano: l’avanguardia Italiana del bike building

Sono nati e cresciuti a Milano, la città dell’italian design. La città dove sono nati anche tantissimi tra costruttori di telai, produttori di biciclette e le loro creazioni uniche. La città dove, per tanti anni, i migliori pistard del mondo si sono riuniti in una famosa Sei Giorni e hanno scritto pagine memorabili della storia del ciclismo.

Il loro amore per la bicicletta e un’esperienza artigianale maturata nel tempo sono alla base della loro idea: che ancora oggi sia possibile realizzare un prodotto unico ed autentico, ad un prezzo ragionevole e renderlo disponibile per chi, come loro, non si accontenta di essere uguale agli altri e apprezza la creatività, lo stile e la qualità.

È così che costruiscono insieme a voi le nostre biciclette: non ce n’è una uguale all’altra e ci sono infinite possibilità di combinare i vari componenti nei diversi colori. Le biciclette Maestro sono fatte in Italia: il telaio – la vera anima della bici – è realizzato in acciaio saldato a mano in un’officina poco distante da Milano. Solo per alcuni componenti particolari si appoggiano ad altre  aziende , ad esempio dalle parti di Birmingham per le selle Brooks.

Pensano che più accessori si aggiungono ad una bici, più alte sono le probabilità che prima o poi qualcosa si rompa. Per questo quando l’hanno disegnata, hanno deciso di spogliare la bicicletta  di tutti i pezzi che non sono necessari e di tenere solo l’essenziale – in modo che possiate dimenticarvi del resto, concentrarvi sulla pedalata e godervi l’aria fresca sul viso.

Pulizia, leggerezza, linee senza tempo e estrema facilità di manutenzione: queste sono le caratteristiche che un Maestro bike builder ha in mente quando lavora ai suoi pezzi. Si sentiamo vicini alla leggerezza di spirito di chi una volta ha detto che “la perfezione si raggiunge non quando non c’è più nulla da aggiungere, ma quando non resta più nulla da togliere”.

E quando la vostra bicicletta sarà finalmente con voi, avrete dimenticato il sottile dolore dell’attesa e potrete godervi la vostra bambina per tanto, tanto tempo.

cinelli bikes bootleg 1947: an outstanding professional racer with 15 years of pedaling in his legs and a taste for mechanical things decides to develop the brilliant intuitions glimpsed during the course of many kilometers on all kinds of roads. His name: Cino Cinelli.

Some remember his racing career, but many others know about him because he gave modern cycling the first aluminium handlebars, the first seat with a plastic core, the first pedal straps, the first quick release pedals.

Thirty years went by, and in 1978 Cino handed the company over to a young industrialist, a leader in the field of steel tubing, with a love of cycling: Antonio Colombo.

The thinking was different, more visionary, with a gaze that saw beyond the present. The company was transformed, and the inventions of “design made in Cinelli” began to find their way around the world. The bicycle changed too, or the vision of the bicycle per se. People began to talk about a total design approach. The result was Laser, which did away with joints and introduced TIG welding for street-bike frames. This was the only Italian bicycle to win the Compasso d’Oro (1991) design award, as well as over 28 gold medals at Olympic Games and World Championships.

Competition has always been a part of Cinelli’s DNA. The firm’s handlebars have been chosen by champions like Lemond, Fignon, Hinault and Chiappucci, not to mention Lance Armstrong and Mario Cipollini, all the way to Di Luca, Freire and Simoni.

With the Rampichino (1985) Cinelli brought the MTB to Italy. With Cork Ribbon (1987) the company reinvented the ribbon. The Spinaci extensions (1996) have been used by over 800,000 cyclists all over the world. Bootleg (2000) breaks the rules, inventing the concept of street cycling. With Ram (2002), Cinelli revolutionized handlebars.
With Mystic Rats (2009) and later with Gazzetta (2010) Cinelli has brought the latest revolution in the world of cycling to Italy, the fixed-gear bicycle: born for the track and reinvented by American bike messengers, the “fixie” represents a necessity for urban cyclists thanks to its unique qualities of lightness, speed and agility. It has become a “must” for all people with a bicycle “fixation”.
With MASH (San Francisco, 2009) the firm has formed an alliance of steel with the historic California bike messenger group.

Cinelli is the official sponsor of the Red Hook Criterium, the most important nocturnal fixed-gear bike competition in the world, also taking the contest from Brooklyn to Milan.

These are the roots of Cinelli, and this is its spirit today: Cinelli is included in the Dizionario del Design Italiano (Rizzoli, 1999), in the ADI Design Index (2000-2001), and is considered a maker of cult objects in the USA, on a par with Ferrari, Vespa and Fornasetti.

Starting in 1980, Cinelli has been the first company to bring art into the world of bicycles. Over the years the company has had fertile relationships of collaboration with the world’s leading designers and artists: from the Laser by Keith Haring to the Cinelli logo designed by Italo Lupi, to the limited-edition Supercorsa by Barry McGee, or the accessories of Mike Giant, the art bike is the most authentic and exclusive expression of the Cinelli trademark.

Since 1997 Cinelli is a division of Gruppo Srl, and together with Columbus it forms a productive pole of worldwide importance in the sector of very high-end bicycles.
The new facilities at Caleppio (Settala, to the south of Milan), opened in 2012, include the production plant and the central warehouse, design and sales offices, and a new space for the exhibit and conservation of the most important Cinelli pieces that have made the history of cycling and Italian bicycle design.
