    Well I ran into a bit of a pickle with the build. The frame shipped is a late 2016 model from what the guys at WS and I can come up with. WS starts the build and discovers the headset is 42mm not 44mm. WS contacts Cinelli and they confirm and offer a very minimal discount on the frame. The new frame is in production and wont be available until mid to late March. The revisions are as follows (44mm head tube, revised cable-stops & dropout) The head tube has been made a little wider and the cable stops are now back on the down tube, that is not a big deal to me. The dropouts are what I think is more important. The older frame has a removable derailleur hanger and the new one has a permanent redesign hanger with the Cinelli logo. It looks awesome, I think I am going to wait for the new model? The pickle is the hanger get the removable hanger that is safe and easily replaceable or get the permanent hanger that can easily be bent back to true.

    See pics below..

    I am looking at the welds at the steering tube.
    Do you really want that? At this price?

    I saw the same thing, I have looked at this frame for quite some time. Itís the first one with poor quality welds. I sent it back and will patiently wait for the 2018.

    44mm headtube? It's gonna look outta whack with the rest of the bike for sure. It'll make the bike look like a cyclocross. It's ok for carbon frames to have 44mm head tube because most carbon frames also have wide top and down tube. But for a classic steel, I'll stick with the traditional 1 1/8. I have a friend who has a 44mm on his otherwise traditional steel, looks grotesque IMO. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    As for the welds, I think XCR welds all look pretty much like that, unless they braze it (like Casati). But other XCR frames from other makes have similar weld characteristic.

    Well this makes me even happier that I got mine in 1 1/8
    But to be honest, if i were to do it all over, I think I'd would go with Barco. I've seen some Barco XCR from a couple folks in Taiwan and I wish Cinelli would give the same options in paint schemes.
