Other than the Technium part, it's a fairly standard "funny bike," or time trial/pursuit bike. If you're thinking of riding this one yourself, I hope you are young and incredibly limber, because otherwise, this bike can be a lesson in self-flagellation.
Sorry wrong answer but thank you for playing! It is not a Technium, it is a standard lugged steel frame. Look closer at the Battaglin stampings I the frame/fork.
