Thanks to reader Matteo for sending this image of a very early Cinelli advertisement from Spring, 1946. "...is it an ancient warrior? NO. It is the herald that announces to the crowds the arrival of the colt of steel, the Cinelli bicycle." Note "Firenze" under the herald.
I noted that this herald also appears on the 1946 Giotto Cinelli engraved crankset that appeared in this article recently.
I invite you to contribute by sending in photographs of your Cinelli bike, illustrations, personal stories, and articles about Cinelli bikes and components.
