Aerobars for Safety


In 1993, famed Italian component manufacturer Cinelli introduced their peculiar mini-aerobar known as Spinaci to the professional peloton. In that same year from the northern end of the European continent, Sweden introduced an inexplicable fusion of reggae and Swedish pop known as Ace of Base. Coincidence? Probably not. But while both phenomena enjoyed a four-year peak of popularity, perhaps one of them deserves reconsideration. And since Ace of Base, who like an Alzheimer patient losing socks at the launderette, can't seem to hold onto a pair of female vocalists in a nation of ABBA-inspired blondes, let's narrow our focus to Cinelli's Spinaci.
