Cino Cinelli's brother Giotto had been making steel stems since the late 1930s in Florence, Italy. They moved the business to Milan after the Second World War. In 1963 Cinelli began commercially producing alloy stems and matching handlebars and it wasn't long before Cinelli bar and stems became the choice of serious athletes and connoisseurs.

The 1A ("A" stood for aluminum) stem and Cinelli bars were first shown at a trade show at the 1960 Rome Olympics. We believe consumer production of these new aluminum stems and bars didn't begin until 1963.

Those first components had a polished, non-anodized finish. The classic clear anodization that gives Cinelli stems and bars that luxurious "milky" finish began in 1965.

  • The Cinelli Touch bars on this page were made in the 1980s-1990s
  • 42cm Touch bar weighs 315 grams
  • Drop on a 42 Touch bar is about 16cm
  • Touch bars had several finishes: polished, clear anodized and black anodized.
  • We have Touch bars with clamp diameter in both 26.0 mm & 26.4
  • Grooved front and back for Campagnolo Ergopower levers
  • Anatomic bend

These bars are new. Some have tape glue on them and marks from brake levers because a bike factory had prepared them to sell on bikes with openable stems. We bought them after the factory decided not to use them and then removed the tape and levers. Again, all the bars on this page are new.
