Cinelli and Larry vs Harry are thrilled to announce a special collaboration of the Limited Edition BULLITT VIGORELLI.
The Bullitt Vigorelli represents a high cultural impact collision of the two most beloved bikes by the world’s finest bike messengers: the Larry vs Harry Bullitt heavy-duty aluminum cargo bike and the Cinelli Vigorelli, iconic track bike of the 2000s. Both these bikes have been ridden and raced by messengers across the world for almost twenty years, participating in an enormous transformation of the urban landscape. Finally the two beasts meet for a very limited special edition that pays homage to a shared history and culture!
Our dialogue with the messenger community kicked off in the early 2000s when messengers all over the world started preferring track bikes. Since then we have been working directly together with them, sponsoring their world championships with our caps, designing bikes together, commissioning their artworks and basically creating really long-lasting and continuously inspiring friendships.But a few years back, we noticed that while they'd still use our track bikes getting TO work, but AT work, they switched to cargo bikes. We love cargo bikes for their practicality and what they stand for, but we didn't want Cinelli to be left out.
So we went to Larry vs Harry, who make the world’s best heavy-duty cargo bike, the Bullitt, and asked if they’d be interested in making a Bullitt-Vigorelli. Luckily the answer was yes.
"The idea of a collaboration between Cinelli and Larry vs Harry, came up exactly a year ago. Though coming from two different angles of the bike business and with a very different age of the companies, we still had a lot in common. We both have a fan base of messengers, who in Cinelli and in us, have found reliable and sturdy bikes made for the professionals. Also we share the dedication to aluminum, a strong still light metal, well suited for fast and durable bikes.
So when we wanted to do something together, the natural choice was to combine the classic Vigorelli track bike with the Bullitt cargobike. One year later we are proud to introduce the Bullitt Vigorelli.”

Today, we're unveiling the Bullitt-Vigorelli, a blend of the track bike's speed and the cargo bike's brawn. This collaboration ensures that messengers and commuters can keep the Cinelli love alive, even while hauling cargo.
