Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I got this frame for free from one of my teachers, he got it from a former student.

It's made by Weiler Cycleworks, but I can't find any info about them. Amidst all the bad stickers the only decals under the clearcoat either say "Weiler" or "Team Yogurt".

Sadly it was crashed pretty bad, but has been repaired. Everything is in place but on of the seatstays isn't quite straight.

Unless someone tells me its an amazing frame and its worth a lot, it's going to the sandblaster soon.

Sorta looks like a Cinelli... I'd say sandblast away! If it really is Columbus SLX then it should be a very nice ride

Don't take it to just any old sandblaster. Some places that are used to doing heavier steel can really rip into a bike frame. Glass bead blasting is better.

Oh, I totally forgot to mention. It does say Cinelli on the BB. I wasn't sure if they made it, or if they just made the bb/lugs.

I'll probably blast it myself. I'll be gentle.

Ask the guys in the Classics/Vintage forum. The lugs look great to me and SLX would have been the top of the line Columbus tubing when the frame was made. I have a Razesa and a Marinoni both made of SLX and they ride beautifully, stiff and supple, great tubing.
