Paul’s Cinelli Vigorelli Caleido Bike Check

I’ve met Paul Chevalier at @svkj__‘s while he was fetching one of the last part of his build: the Kronos x Courage Chainring.


Frame: Cinelli Vigorelli Caleido Frameset
Headset: Integrated (no particular brand)
Front wheel: 3-spokes Carbon Super Team
Rear wheel: Mavic Ellipse
Tires: Continental 4 seasons (front) / Thickslick 25mm (rear)
Pedals: Schindelhauer Urban
Straps: Moga Bags x Spazio Studio
Chainring: Kronos x Courage (49T)
Bottom Bracket: SRAM GXP Team
Chain: Izumi Jet Black 1/8″
Cog: Miche (17T)
Handlebar: FSA VTT Flatbar Carbon
Stem: 3T ARX LTD
Grips: Ritchey Comp Trail
Seat Post: Ritchey WCS Zero Blatte 31.6mm
Seat: Fizik Tempo Argo
Crankset: SRAM Omnium

The crankset stiffness and the lightweight 3-spokes provide a really appreciable efficency to each pedal stroke.


The front part of the build is really incisive: the handlebar, stem and 3-spokes make it super lightweight and resist vibration as Paul says.

The downside of his build in his opinion is the Omium’s length of 170mm, which combined to his front geometry causes a slight overlap. Even if it’s a matter of taste, people always discuss this question: it’s up to you! For speeding on a bike track, there’s really no problem with it, but if you plan to do tricks out of a bike with overlap, you could have surprises ?

Epileptic beauty

We went with Paul on Place de la République here in Paris at sunset to get those shots. The water mirror was fun to shoot on with those reflection persectives.

We then move to a near street while the sun were going down, and we found that magic spot with those flashy kitch lights.

Caleido Natural Habitat

Paul uses his fixed gear as a daily, ridding with @okami.riding on thursdays, or for some straight speed purpose. I must say that the build seems to perfectly fit for this!
