When setting up this blog I had two goals in mind. Firstly (and obviously) to write and collate all the news and interesting info about Viner bikes. But secondly I’d like this blog to become an online place where all Vineristi can share their experiences, info and of course, their bikes. It would be great if we could build up a resource of different model images and ‘ride’ reviews, to help any future Viner owners make the right choice when contemplating a new Viner.

So, why not write about how much you love your Viner, how it rides, any upgrades you’ve made, great rides you’ve had together, great races you’ve won on her, and obviously send some pictures. They will get posted up and hopefully we can build up an index of the various models.

    great to find your vineristi blog !
    i come from “the other side of the valley” that means by hazard i became a vineristi by rescueing an old racebike from being dumped. it happens to be viper-green 1978 viner special professional made of reynolds 531 tubes. a vintage bike !
    after being refreshed, ovehault & completed it shows all qualities a fine bike of this time can give you. meanwhile “updated” with a complete dura ace breakset and rearderailleur, otherwise shimano 600 EX arabesque (dued to an old “dura ace equipped” decal on the frame), running actually on a campa record highflange / mavic wheelset. it is suppodes to be my racebike for the 2011 L’eroica in gaiole / chianti.

    fatal, fatal to get and have the pleasure of runnig such a bike 😉
    shortly ago i couldn’t pass a burning-yellow 1992 Viner Pro Team made of Columbus genius steel. to early to present it. good things will take a while.
    i’m sure another big thing is coming up 😉

    best regards from germany,

    Great to see another lover of the brand! I currently have a Viner Pro Team Air Plane V6 (circa 2002). It’s made of Columbus Aluminum and is as light as a feather and stiffer than anything. I have it decked out with Campy Veloce and Mavic wheels. Quite the ride! You can check out some picks of my Viner V6 on my WordPress blog and you’re welcome to grab the images and repost on your blog.

    I don’t have it anymore, sadly, but I rode a ’74 viner bike for a good 3 years. Only weighed about 20lbs, and it handled like a dream. So much soul! I’m currently on a trek 2.1 be I’m saving for a maximum RS

    I know this is an old thread, but I thought I would write to tell you about my viner I picked up for $20 in a lot of bikes I purchased. It appears to be a Special professional as it has the stars in all the right places and is super lightweight. It has a serial number of 51 on the bottom .

    Anything you could tell me about the bike would be appreciated.
