whats up

hey whats up...im getting a cinelli vig next month and just wondering if a 52 would fit... im 5'6".... does the 52 run pretty big...i run a 52 already and it fits pretty nice..

i think it depends... i tend

i think it depends... i tend to like my bike frames to be slightly smaller fitting. i also like the look of a bike that has a lot of seat post showing. if i were you i would ride anywhere between a 50 and a 52 depending on your measurements and your preference as to having a larger or smaller frame. i dont think you could go wrong with either size.

i am 5'9" and am riding a 52... some would say i should be riding a 54...

if you're not sure get a bike shop you trust to give you their opinion.

hope this helps.

i run a 54cm on my vig and i

i run a 54cm on my vig and i am 5'10. I run the fairly high. I would think a 52 would be fine

And by the way, this is a great build of the vig. love the deda pista's with blue bar tape

the msw is on so that i can

the msw is on so that i can put on rock shocks with a front brake for when i wanna get crazy on the single track. haha nah i had a carbon fork that was drilled for a brake and i rocked that for a while so that i could get super shredly. unfortunately the idea was short lived when a bunch of hipsters on rollerblades called me a pussy for having a brake and it was psychologically damaging so i took it off. why you think i should get an nmsw up front on the pizza vigorelli?

i mean, there's no point to

i mean, there's no point to having a msw front wheel if you're not running a brake. but you already have the wheel, and it really doesn't make a difference. i was just curious. hipsters on rollerblades?

hey i really like your

hey i really like your vigorelli by the way. lets race some hipsters and show them what this no flex tube is all about.

msw what? is that some crazy

msw what? is that some crazy fixie acronym? lets party!

...no, it's not a crazy

...no, it's not a crazy "fixie" acronym. you have a front msw wheel. msw = machined side walls. this means that your front wheel was machined for a braking surface. seeing as how your vigorelli is a 2008, it is not drilled for a brake. so i was just wondering as to why you put a machined side wall wheel on a bike without brakes...

pizza and the fixie, they

pizza and the fixie, they just really go hand in hand if you really think about it. make some of those 1000 dollar pans into some sick wheels and cook the pizza while you're riding.

why do you have msw?

why do you have a msw front wheel?

Thanks for the help Mike.

My bike just arrived the other day. I will be building it this weekend.

no prob

right on.. what size did you end up deciding on? can't wait to see the pics

i like your cinelli

i like your cinelli. i like pretty much all cinellis though. what about drop bars? that would make it even better. like the cinelli integrated bars would be awesome.

Hey thanks a lot! You can't

Hey thanks a lot! You can't really go wrong with a Cinelli. The super corsa pistas are a beautiful bike as well. I'm definitely going to get drops at some point. Integrated would be cool, too bad they don't make them in pista dimensions though. I quite like the Cinelli drops though, or the Dedas.

.

fuckin sweet bike, good job!
i have a question though
i am about to buy a vigorelli and i am torn on size
how tall are you?

Hey thanks a lot! I am just

Hey thanks a lot! I am just a ti-ch over 5' 9" and find that the 52 fits perfectly for me. hope this helps

46:18 and you run a

46:18 and you run a brake???? Fucking pussy.

it is nice on the old knees

it is nice on the old knees bass boy

I was drunk when I wrote

I was drunk when I wrote that. I don't actually think you're a pussy.

But there is a big misconception about brakeless riding and knee pain. Resisting the force of the pedals normally, puts no pressure on the knees from my experience, the thigh muscles do the work from what I can tell. However, skidding and skip stopping and such are what do the real damage. It mashes your disks or whatever the fuck they are. I went skid crazy one day and had some pain at the end of the day, but it didn't last long.

I have nothing against using a brake as I put mine on on longer non-stop rides (30+ miles), but I just think the knee argument is tired.

awww... its nice to see

awww... its nice to see bikers get along....hahaha....i admire ur courage bass boy...that drunk thing was a good excuse........

haha ya i've done that once

haha ya i've done that once or twice.

I was just kinda bummed cuz my first comment was YOUR A PUSSY. brakes / no brakes who cares. riding is fun, people analyze all that crap too much.

thanks for someone saying it
