Online cycle retailer Always Riding, working in collaboration with Cinelli, Chicken Cycle Kit and Gates Carbon Drive, has announced the launch of two exclusive Cinelli Bikes.
The Always Riding x Cinelli Tutto features the Gates Carbon Belt Drive at its heart. Gates Carbon Drives are used across multiple industries but are being seen more and more on high performance bike builds. Especially suited to the city cyclist, the Gates Drive has minimal maintenance, no grease and no rust meaning easy cleaning, easy storage and no need for setting up, tweaking or dealing with any frustration immediately before the start of a commute or ride.
The Always Riding x Cinelli Zydeco is designed for versatility of use. Key to this versatility are the Schwalbe G-One tyres. With rack mounts and a geometry suited to comfort over long distances, the Zydeco can transition from city bike to Cyclocross racer and even take on a bikepacking trip.
Always Riding organised a photo shoot to showcase the Always Riding x Cinelli Zydeco and x Cinelli Tutto online the photos were taken by photographer Helen Mellor.
Director of Always Riding Richard Bowker CBE commented: “We are delighted to be working with Cinelli and Chicken Cycle Kit, two of the best known names in cycling, to offer something different and exciting in a crowded online bike market.
“We believe both these bikes will cater for cyclists looking for something really innovative that will stand out from the crowd, but at the same time are supremely practical, beautifully built and will deliver a really rewarding riding experience. This collaboration is entirely consistent with the philosophy of Always Riding – to work with the best brands and companies in the world of cycling to bring the best products and experience to our customers.”
A representative from Cinelli added: “Cinelli is the epicentre of creativity and design, and the Zydeco and Tutto represent this superbly. However beauty is not just skin deep, with their Columbus tubing and unique builds these are the ultimate utility and performance bicycles, built for any path and every road.”
Director of Gates Carbon Drive Systems Todd Sellden concluded: “Gates is excited to have the Gates Carbon Drive belt system featured on the Cinelli Tutto. A beautiful city bike like the Tutto deserves a modern low maintenance drivetrain that is made for all weather riding.”
