Cinelli x Elley Kishimoto

September 16, 2010

Cinelli is very proud to announce it’s involvement in Eley Kishimoto’s FLASH ON project. The project began with the designers Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto interest in our classic Supercorsa Model..

This starting point grounded the project: the Cinelli Supercorsa is a very concrete piece of cycling’s cultural heritage, the longest running production model in the history of road cycling. It is a product by now more akin to a Carlo Barbera yarn than a bicycle simply for the elaborate cycle, and rarity of the techniques, used in its construction.
Knowing this, Eley Kishimoto, with typical playful antagonism, decided to paint “over” the original design, disguising the elaborate details (chromed lugs, pinstripe graphics, proprietary fastback stays)in their signature “Flash” pattern, producing a sort of visual double-take: you-see-it-you-don’t-see-it.

Wow, this looks awesome… a decent side on photograph would be nice though.

As an emerging bike-brand, Kinfolk looked to one of Japan’s most respected and established Keirin bike builders in Kusaka to produce and manufacture the brand’s frames. With few possessing the necessary knowledge, patience and understanding required to build a bike of this quality, Kinfolk’s offerings are undoubtedly something that won’t easily escape your mind. Teaming up with another respected entity in bike shop Carnival Tokyo, together the two release a co-branded fixed gear bike featuring a Kinfolk frame and Carnival Tokyo components.

Acne x Bianchi

January 1, 2009

Seen at Fixed Gear Blog the Acne collabo with Bianchi.

“Swedish fashion and denim brand Acne has partnered with Italian bike manufacturer Bianchi to create a slick, streamlined collection that is both fashionable and functional.”

This makes my blood boil. They have taken a perfectly good bicycle and painted it… oh and dashed a suede saddle on it. God knows how much they will be asking for these, whatever I reckon they will be way more expensive than a standard Pista which I would prefer any day of the week!

Available this year at Acne stores… Yes folks, that’s Fashion outlets.
Not bicycle shops.

And what’s with the the photographs of the non crank side?
