Ask someone you trust maybe, and not some random guys on a forum?
I have a white Superstar and in my opinion it looks ace - but it's my view. And Giant's frame is probably more technically advanced.

The Cinelli in Laser Blue.

(The TCR is likely a better handling bike)

If you want to be cool, Cinelli.

If you want one of the best frames out there, TCR.

buy a Giant if you follow your head, but get the Cinelli if you follow your heart :thumbup: it's all about the Italian magic

on more serious note, Giant is sharper handling bike and probably more advanced technologically (after years of refinement in the TCR bloodline).

The Cinelli is still good enough for some pro team however, look up Team Col Pack.

I don't like mainstream stuff, so i would pick Cinelli :mrgreen:
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:

Cinelli has spent the last decade trying to reimagine itself every few years. First they targeted fixie kids and messengers...now they seemingly want to get back into road (and gravel.) However, I can’t make heads or tails of their product line. It’s seemingly random like they’re picking frames straight out of someone else’s catalog. They’ve ended up with two road bikes in the Superstar and then newer Veltrix that aren’t really distinct besides styling. Personally, I think the Superstar’s random kinks and bends are ugly.

Cinelli doesn’t, shouldn’t carry the same cachet it used to.
