No doubt this is one of the nicest and sought after frame in Cinelli's catalogue. As the official product press states:
The Cinelli crown jewel: our most advanced steel frame, made with the best materials and the highest technological quality. The Standard XCR tubing is a seamless tube in biphasic stainless steel, to create a light, unparalleled vibration absorpting, eternal bicycle frame. Pure state of the art...
In terms of construction:
The Cinelli XCR has a unique composition of the tubes that presents a ride quality that is is unlike any other steel, alloy or titanium. The feel is supremely confident with consistent feedback but without sacrificing road-dampening comfort. On top of this, the XCR is Micro-TIG welded and a nearly indestructible frameset. This also translates into an incredibly light-weight frame that is ultra competitive even among its carbon peers....
The Cinelli XCR is made by order and fully handmade in Italy. We now have one of this excellent frame in Size S available for display by in-shop request, while another one has already been reserved. The frame comes in five size and wait time is approx. 4 months to 6 months, expect longer wait time and a little more cost should you want yours to be built in custom measurement. Also available in plain Mirror finish (see pics)
NOW LETS JUMP TO THE PICTURES!!!!
