After some months of riding my new Cinelli Nemo Tig gravel bike and thinking ‘why?’, I’ve finally found some time to figure out a way to get rid of it. My bike shop will try and sell it for me and they won’t even take a commission. They will, however, hold a credit of €1000 after the sale so I will have to spend some money at their shop. A thousand euros is a helmet and a pair of shoes these days, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
I’m glad that the Nemo will hopefully find an owner who will take it outside where it belongs. I couldn’t stand seeing it sit on the stand in front of my desk week after week.
And now of course, I’m down a bike, so suddenly the possibilities are endless again.

Hmm, sad to hear, as i love graveling..is this a word?
In Germany those bike sales double or triple road bike sales..in Hamburg you would sell it in a day…
I’m going to Frankfurt next month. Maybe I should take it with me…
Yup. Seems like if you can’t sell it to a Hamburger or a Frankfurter it’s pretty much a lost cause and you should keep it.
What framsize is it? Ekar and shamals?
It’s an ‘S’ with a 120mm stem, so fits me perfectly – 176cm. No Shamals. I just went for the stock Fulcrum Rapid Red 500s, thinking that if I like the bike I’d upgrade the wheels.
