This is frame set is so awesome. More photos HERE!
“We are pleased to share with you, a special project we have been working on with Chas Christiansen and the team at Columbus/Cinelli. Enclosed are some details of our first Columbus steel frame set. This unique package is intended to cover a broad range of solutions with one bike. Chas travels heavily, racing alley cats, working as a messenger, racing cyclocross, so this bike was born from his diverse goals. The geo has a high bottom bracket, and is agressive in nature, but allowing for weight to be carried on the front rack, while feeling stable. The frame and fork have removable canto brake bosses, so the bike can be ridden as a clean fixed gear, or single speed cyclocross frame set, including internal cable routing for the rear brake. Both the frame and fork will clear 35c tires for dirt, or a smooth street cruiser. We kept a raw look, keeping the heated markings, and clear coating the steel, ultimately celebrating Columbus, of who we are proud to call family. Garrett Chow drew on the historical Cinelli and Columbus art archive to detail this frame set in a timeless way. Look for more updates this week, on this frame set, as well as the Parallax, and Histogram models.”
