Cinelli Very Best of SR EPS 2013 Road Bike. The best technological know-how of Columbus Carbon LAB together with the frame-making experience of Cinelli have created Very Best Of (VBO): the new carbon fibre monocoque frame, the top of the Cinelli line. Every single element of the frame has been analysed and developed to achieve maximum performance and reduced weight, thanks to brilliant combined use of T700/HM carbon fibres. Pure Racing Geometry and completely internal cable passage, using either a mechanical or an electronic group (Born to be Wired).
Steering column 1-1/8'' - 1-1/4'' designed according to the 60/40 ratio-standard between the down tube and the top tube, for an improved tubes interaction, taking stress off from the down tube, above all, in conditions of high frontal fork strain, as in sudden braking at high speeds. Steering control is significantly improved, also thanks to the slight curvature of the new monocoque fork blades. The saddle joint is one of the outstanding characteristics of the VBO frame, the point in which most of the rider's weight is transferred and where strains from the road are transmitted most strongly. To minimize them we have created a special transition zone, slimming the rear posts to make them more vertically flexible, and connecting the top tube so that the vibrations from the rear wheel instead of being transmitted to the seat post (and, therefore, the rider), dispersing strains along the horizontal and vertical tubes. The choice of a seat post with a diameter of 27.2 makes the bike even more comfortable. The bottom bracket completely in carbon permits easy cable routing, completely concealed in the part below, improving the looks of the bicycle and significantly reducing aerodynamic resistance. The oversized construction of the bracket housing and the right stay increase the lateral stiffness of the frame, considerably improving pedalling efficiency. The left stay permits easy attachment of the external battery of the electronic group.
