Look Familiar?

So, Rapha have introduced a range of pretty pricey framesets. The Cinelli XCR caught my eye for obvious reasons, though I thought this drop out does look rather familiar...


  1. You have to admit, the seatclamp on the Rapha Cinelli is very neat, but it looks weirdly unfinished too. Maybe a throwback of too long staring at a seat collar.

  2. Yep- not quite sure about that either. Think the 'unfinished' aspect comes from adding paint. Looks like it needs something to finish the metal- agree.
