Cino MMXXI

August 28th and 29th, 2021.

Pencil it into your calendar. That's the date we have settled on this year for the Cino. If you are a Cino-phile, you will note that it is the weekend before Labor Day, two weeks earlier than usual. There are a couple of reasons why: conflicts with other unnamed events, August is still vacation time for many, but the big one is my sanity. As a teacher, it was very challenging to spend the first, exhausting week of school also prepping for the Cino back in 2019.

What will the Cino look like? It will be different. How different? Not sure yet, but your safety will be paramount (like a Nervex Pro-lugged, fully chromed Schwinn). And the spirit will be 110% Cino.

A big question for some (like me): will the food be the same? Again, it will be different. But I promise you the protein bars will be bread with cheese and meat and any hydration fluids we offer will be sparkling, or derived from barley or grapes.

My sincerest hope is that we will all be offered the vaccine and we will be finally getting a handle on this dreaded disease by the time Cino rolls around. We are a gregarious group and we want everyone to have a spectacular and safe time.

Warmly,

David - Cino Director

PS - Thanks for the support and encouragement from all the BF members here (@northbend; & @gugie especially)- you really helped me make think outside the box and take the leap.

From the MMXX un-Cino:

I'm in!

I plan on doing that other un-named event mainly as an excuse to take 5 days and ride down the coast with other BFer's - which was the 2020 plan, before-times.

I don't think I have enough vacation time built up to ride to Montana, however.

Pencil me in... in pencil. I never intended to be out of work, but here it is 4 months in and still looking to get something in my field. No job = no trip. New job may also = no trip.

Good news is I have my bike all ready.

The 81 speed?

One of these days. Just possibly MMXXII. I hate to bail on the congregation before the pandemic is well under control. I want to participate just to get one of those too cool wool jerseys.

No. Not that one.

It's this mere mortal 15-speed. (my what large tires you have)

Same sentiment as last year: I don't like organized rides, but do want to participate in this one.

It's a 15 hour drive for me, which is probably physically harder for me than the ride itself.

As above, just pencil me in for now.

If the COVID is under control I'll be there! My wife and I are looking forward to making a camping road trip out of it.

Cino has taken me down a very enjoyable rabbit hole. I decided last year that I wanted to put together a bike that predates Nuovo Record for my first Cino. Well this thing led to that thing and I'm now building up my third 1950s, early 1960s bike.
Which one will I bring? I still don't know. I'll let you know once I finish the Carlton. (unless yet another bike comes along...)

Olmo


Allegro



Carlton


Brent

Very nice bikes, indeed! However, you may consider lower -- even period stretching -- gears for Cino. I rode it a few years ago on my stock 1960 Paramount, and the 46 x 26 low gear was nowhere near low enough. The skinny tubulars also were an issue.

i don't travel too well these days, but would love to be there.

And always have Cino-ready bikes.
Check the wheelbase on the Rickert.
Just modify the build a bit from Gran Sport authentic, and it might be the first Hugo Rickert at Cino.


Will accept 33mm with knobs. But 30mm would be my dry Cino choice.

WOW! Wildwood that has to be the lowest geared C&V ride we've ever seen. The chainring is so tiny we can't even see it!

Thanks for the advice! I've decided to go with "Suffering builds character" for this ride. I can always walk. As for the tubulars, these aren't so skinny at 28mm and 30 mm. Being a cyclocross guy I have a fondness for fat tubulars at low pressures.

For Cino X I rode 34mm cyclocross tubulars (thanks to @northbend for clueing me in to the sale) and it was my first flat-free Cino - like riding on fluffy little clouds with happy trees in the background.

As @northbend told me awhile back, bringing a bike that wasn't made for the dusty gravel roads of Montana is Cino (using Cino as a verb).

Full suspension mountain bike? Not Cino.
Schwinn Varsity? Very Cino.

You will also need to figure out if you can make your chain work too. Without it, riding a bike more difficult.

btw, for those considering Cino or that other heroic ride a bit west. That thread has 8 pages of hand-wringing. Cino threads are only how awesome it is.

Is this Cino enough?

Quoted for truth. Cino is awesome food and adult beverages everywhere and freshly cooked bacon at the first sag stop. And riding bikes too.

how about a Cino bike and setup style question?

my ride is an 84 team miyata with dura ace ex deraillers and 7400 crankset at with 52/39 and 12-28 freewheel. 7400 dura ace brakes also

I am working hard at losing weight, getting in shape and getting better at climbing.....but expect hill challenges

What is better style: Keep my current setup and accept some walking or put a 6500 ultegra triple on front (with rx100 rear derailler from my parts bin) and walk a bit less

wheels and tires will be interesting choice also running some gravel king 28 on mavic ma40 rim (using this for training) but also looking into doing tubular on mavic gel330 and corsa control 30mm (will try this if the weight loss keeps going well)

The only thing I would recommend is choose the setup that is best for you to climb in seated position. You'll lose traction out of the saddle on the gravel.
