    It's made by Cinelli. Still looking for more info when I find time.

  • All I can say is that guy looks silly as hell wearing full road kit laying down with a weird trainer. A pair of old shorts and t-shirt would have done just fine without dirtying expensive bike clothes. Jan 30, 2014 at 2:50

    A Cinelli sponsored athlete using a Cinelli manufactured home trainer while wearing full kit with Cinelli all over it. I'd suggest this is some sort of promo photo or interview.

    It does look a bit like a 'creeper' used for sliding under cars to do mechanic work, with a custom frame bolted on.

The guy using it apparently is Hans-Henrik Oersted who was sponsered by chinelli. The company recently did a rerun of two jerseys to honor him. The picture can also be found on cinellis website about the jerseys so i wrote a request for information to their customer service. They answered it is a handmade trainer build especially for Hans-Henrik Oersted in the 80's. It was never for sale.
