The Hobootleg is Cinelli’s flagship steel adventure bike.
Since its original conception and fine-tuning in two successive editions of the mythical Tour d’Afrique in 2012 and 2013 (genesis to which the bicycle’s livery pays homage), the Hobo Bootleg, has broken the Guinness World Record for crossing the world by bicycle as well as conquered all seven of the world’s highest mountain passes and dialed up more than a million kilometers in adventure riding.
The result is a tried and tested, ultra-reliable, Hoboing adventure bike like no other in the world. From the use of double-butted Columbus tubes to its electrophoretic paint job, its Tubus bike ricks, its custom ovalized Cinelli handlebar, its bar tape decorated with the sign language of early 20th-century American hobos, there is no detail of this bike that has not been obsessively tuned, tested, retuned and perfected over the last 5 years to enable you to ride it, straight out of the box, as hard and far as you like without a second thought.
Cinelli is one of the most recognized trades in the world as a manufacturer of bicycles and components. It was founded in 1948 by Cino Cinelli (1916-2001), a professional road racer and president of the Italian Cyclist Association.
Cinelli is based in Milan, the center of the Italian cycling industry. And it production is estimated at 80 percent components, 20 percent bicycles. Cinelli recently teamed up with San Francisco to create the popular “Cinelli MASH” frames and components, which are used in the fixed gear world.
