All I know is it looks great, very nice frame. I'll check my french magazines to see if there is any review of it. If I find something, I'll let you know.

Florian is right, it's a naked 2003 Cinelli Carbon XLR8R.

Cinelli had added carbon seat-tube for their 2004 model.

The frame is combination of aluminum and carbon tubes.
Not a real Weight Weenie but I like my bike lighter!

that pic is from Columbus marketing. any custom frame builder who can weld aluminum can build one for you assuming they are willing.

so basically its a tube set available form www.framebuilding.com
