In the 80s, the big American MTB wave reached also European shores with the full force. European brands couldn't stay behind for long and so even the most established road bike manufacturers started to develop and introduce so called ATB (all terrain bike) models. The very fist one was Cinelli with the Rampicino model. Soon whole array of models arrived and the Cinelli Mimetika was one of them.
The steel frame still sports the original paintjob which gave it its name. Mimetica means "camouflage" in Italian and one wonders which psychedelic environment this paint scheme would blend in.
It is equipped with original parts like Shimano 200GS and Deore LX 9-speed shifters. Interesting is certainly the Cinelli quill stem with inner routing for the front brake. Brand new is the whole wheelset laced around the Shimano Deore hubs and fitted with premium Japanese Panaracer Smore and Dart tyres. And as a red cherry on the top the San Marco Linea Professional saddle with curled rails for more comfort.
For Cinelli fans, vintage-MTB aficionados and for those who like something a bit more special.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! All parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in fantastic riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
