    1990 Cinelli The Absolute Machine

    Does anyone out there have any info on these? I know the 1992 Cinelli bikes were designed by Fisher and used some Fisher labeled parts. This bike pre-dates those bikes. This one came from a parts wholesaler in the US so I am not 100% sure if these were imported/made?

    Either way, it is a very pretty bike. The bars are carbon Cinelli bars and the stem has a hollow pinch bot for the front brake cable.

    very pretty bike. Columbus Max tubing. Looks like maybe it's made by Santana. It's fillet brazed right?

    Beautiful bike! Can you post some pix.... seat post binder clamp/ upper chainstays, bb/downtube, and chainstay/dropouts.

    Appears that the hubs are black too?

    This Cinelli is one of my favorites that you have posted.... this bike has class!

    I've posted pics of an Elevated stay TNM, with the same Columbus Max tubing, and it had a full Record OR group to go with it. Both are very pretty bikes. Quite light too. The Fisher influence is really obvious on the one I've seen, not so much on this one. If it really is FB'ed, those are the smallest fillets I've ever seen.
    Just a regular guy.

    Not So Much

    Different cable routing and different seat cluster for sure.

    Really any bike made with that distinctive tubeset will look pretty similar at a glance to any other.

    I used to have a Serrotta made out of Columbus T Max. Amazing bike! Rode a little too stiff but it handled better than anything I have tried. That Cinelli looks just like it.
