I've bought this bike last year in terrible conditions, it's my first mtb, then i've done every possible restoration work, but i wasn't completely satisfied with it so at the first glimpse of oil leak i bought a Kona Cinder Cone with discs to be my new bike.
The problem is that i bought this bike thinking i could mantain it like road bike, so being the top of the line Cinelli steel mtb from the 90's i thought that a complete overhaul would have been worth it; i was wrong!
in a year i barely made it look like i wanted, parts options here are a harder decision than choosing between Campy Chorus or Record, and in everyday use the bike seems just too much wear and tear.
Now i'm tryng to sell it (size is wrong too), but here in Italy the mtb market is still looking mostly to new stuff, i think i'll have to split to sell.

Yes!
tig welded Nemo with Ritchey dropouts, derailleur cable runs internal into the seatstay, bb shell, head tube and seat tube all share the same edge reinforcement.
The bare frame weighs only 1kg 600g!
